What is the Students Watch?
As a student union DISK is obligated to ensure that the quality of the courses given at DSV are up to standards. This is done through the so called students watch. The students watch is run by two people whos job is to make sure that the institution follows set standards and rules for swedish centers of learning. They also work together with the institution to reach it’s common goals. The students watch does also review new course literature before lecturers switch out the old course literature. The students watch keeps an open dialogue with the institution to make sure that the quality is up to standards.
What can the Students Watch help me with?
You can contact the students watch if you have any questions or complaints about the education, such as the chosen course literature, not getting back an exam within the set time, or vague information from the course administrator. The students watch can also bring up any general complaints about the education or personel of the instiution to the administration.
If you have any complaints about how you have been treated by the personel at DSV, for example if you feel offended or unfairly treated by a lecturer or course administrator, you should contact DISK’s (länk till studerandeskyddsombud).
