What is the student democracy?

Students are by law ensured the right to partake in all decisions that affect them at the University of Bergen. This means that students have at least 20% representation in all boards and councils at UiB, as well as their own democratic institutions.

The highest levels of student representation at UiB are found in the Student Parliament and the University Board. The members of the Student Parliament and the students in the University Board are elected for a period of one year at a time, via an electronic election each spring. All registered students at UiB have the right to vote in the student election.
