Slovene Student Union (SSU) is a dedicated organisation encompassing all Slovenian students and aiming to meet the interests of more than 100.000 students of Slovenian faculties, academies, professional and vocational colleges as well as foreign institutions of higher education. Its history began with the 1994 Students Association Act, but it was only after the passing of the new Student Constitution in November 2002 that the idea to launch a uniform representation of students’ interests at the national level became a fully functional reality.
