Student unions play a major role in influencing universities as well as assisting students. Especially in Stockholm, student unions are a driving force and they can help you integrate and adjust to your new life quite fast. They can do so by representing you at the university and offering various opportunities to join academic and extracurricular activities.
Each university has its own student union and membership. It is always a good idea to check how you can register so that you can benefit from student discounts and be part of the tribe!
