Student Administration and Counselling

Target audience

Staff working with student administration — with a particular focus on study and career counsellors. Additionally, the group has an interest in spreading knowledge about higher education policy in the Nordic region to strengthen our Nordic identity and learn from each other’s innovations.

Focus areas

The group works with questions related to Nordic university students. Its focus is recruitment, admissions, student counselling and career counselling and the transition to the job market. The learning environment, student information, and student mobility within Scandinavia are also topics of interest.

The group keeps pace with current education policy and policy debates in the Nordic countries and strives to be a resource for member institutions’ staff working with student administration and to disseminate knowledge via seminars and webinars.

Activity goals in the period 2020‒2021

The group will continue the work with knowledge sharing activities:

  • We will hold onto offering 1-2 webinars/semester. A seminar/conference in Uppsala is under
    preparation for spring 2023.

In addition, the group will make an evaluation of the webinars and take up the planning of a field trip
for knowledge, ideas and input to our knowledge sharing activities.
