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 2019‒2020

In 2019 the group will continue the work with NUAS Forum 2019. During the next meetings, we will also start the work on future knowledge sharing activities. We are going to look into possibilities for a new conference, webinars and NUAS-talks with short videos. A website update regarding Student Administration and Counselling is also scheduled. Planning of a field trip for knowledge, ideas and inspiration to our knowledge sharing activities will start at the next meeting. The field trip is going to take place during 2019–2020.
