Student well-being

Student health



Göta studentkår wants to see a university where no student gets sick from their studies.

Students are a vulnerable group, both financially and have a pressure within their studies. This creates a situation where many students feel bad as a result of their studies. This is not acceptable and we therefore want to see greater efforts from the university to tackle the mental and physical ill-health among students. Ill health should never lead to a student not being able to finish his studies or live a full life.

Göta studentkår wants:
Göta studentkår wants:
  • Expand student health care so that it works more preventively
  • Carry out a survey among the students about what the health situation at the University of Gothenburg looks like today
  • That students are seen as a given party in the work with ill health at the university
