IT Section's Weekly Report - Week 10

Wonder what happened last week?


Student groups - what do they do?
In week 10, your chairwoman met one of IT’s student groups to advice about how a student group functions and how a group of students can impact their education or organize events. In Göta studenntår’s IT section, each program has a student group which represents all students from this specific program. It could be that this student group does extra course or program evaluations, organize guest lectures or even organize parties.
Are you interested of joining or (re)establishing a student group for your program to improve education or just to organize some parties for your program? Then talk to Verena, your chairwoman via email at or send her a PM on Messenger.

Dear exchange students and international master students at the University of Gothenburg,
at our university, we constantly strive to make internationalization and mobility more sustainable. During the spring semester 2019, there is a sustainability project which may be interesting for you who travel to and from Gothenburg by other means of transport than flying.
The project, administered by a group of students, is called “Sustainable Exchange Travelling“ and is financed by the internal Climate Fund at the University of Gothenburg. The aim is to support international students and outgoing exchange students who travel to and from Gothenburg without flying. If you choose to travel by train, bus and/or ferry, the project can provide a 50% refund of the ticket costs (with a max. refund of 2000 SEK per way). The current project is limited to the spring semester 2019 and can cover either one way or both ways (i.e. the journey here and back). If you choose to go home at the end of the semester by train, ferry and/or bus, it is also possible to still sign up and get the refund for just that way.
