Student Parliament elections staring today
This year's Student Parliament elections are held April 15 - 23. Use your vote!
The Student Parliament is the highest level of student democracy at the University of Oslo. Our aim is to improve the academic and social life for our students. In Norway, students have the right, by law, to have at least 20 percent representation in every decision-making body at the University. At the University of Oslo (UiO), students are represented in every board and governing body, from program-level and all the way up to the University Board. In these boards, students who are representing you fight for a better education, and more environmental and egalitarian university.
Five students are elected to work full-time for a year, to act as the Student Parliament’s executive committee. The Student Parliament also elects the students representing UiO in the Welfare Council of Oslo and Akershus and in The National Union of Students in Norway.
