The Uppsala School of Technology and Science's opinion framework forms the basis for the study monitoring work and contains the official positions on higher education policy issues represented by the Student Union at Uppsala University. The programme is an important document that gives the student body and student representatives a solid foundation to stand on in their advocacy work towards the university's management and other decision-makers.
The opinion program covers a variety of topics of importance to students, including:
This programme is regularly updated to reflect on the changing needs and opinions among the students. It is the Council, the highest decision-making body of the Corps, which determines the opinion programme each year during its September meeting. Before a decision is made, the proposal is prepared and reviewed by the union's study watchers who are tasked with ensuring that the interests and needs of students are represented in the best possible way.
A clear and updated opinion program is essential for the student union to exercise strong and coherent advocacy work. It mandates the study guardians and student representatives to advance and defend the interests of students in any context where educational and study environment issues are discussed and decided.
