Problems during your studies

Förhoppningsvis stöter du inte på några problem under studietiden, men om du har otur finns det hjälp att få. Om problemet rör din utbildning kan du vända dig till studentkårens/lärosätets studentombud och om frågan istället rör andra omständigheter i ditt liv kan du få juridisk rådgivning av GFS studentjurister. Vid sjukdom som orsakats eller förvärrats av studierna kan du vända dig till Akademihälsan. Blir du sjuk en längre tid ska du kontakta Försäkringskassan om sjukersättning.

Studentombud

Student- and doctoral student ombudsman
For students and doctoral students at University of Gothenburg, there are three ombudsmen who can help you if you should get into trouble regarding your education. They work for all the student unions at University of Gothenburg collectively and will help any student regardless of education or union membership. You can contact them here.

For students at Chalmers there are ombudsmen, guaranteeing impartial help for when students and teachers get into a conflict. You can contact them here.

If your question doesn’t concern a single issue but rather a general wish for improvement in the education you can talk to your student union. Contact information can be found at Student unions and membership.

Akademihälsan – The student health center

The Student Health Center is a complement to the public health care system for students at the university of Gothenburg and Chalmers. Our main task is the treatment of health problems originating in or aggravated by the study situation.

Foreign students who are not entitled to public health care in Sweden can have certain medical care at the Student Health Center. This concerns students from countries outside the European Union and students with a residence permit for less than one year.  Read more here.
