Good for your studies

DISK’s main function is to ensure that the quality of education at DSV is maintained. If you have received an unfair grade or if you think that the quality of your education does not measure up, we are happy to help you through our study monitoring. You can contact the study monitoring at iLearn, Facebook or studiebevakning@disk.su.se, and you can read more about the study monitoring here.

As a member, you contribute to an increased number of members. With more members, DISK gets more influence when we meet representatives of universities and businesses, which benefits all students of DSV.

DISK works to ensure that the students at DSV have as good a study environment as possible, which is why we have a student safety agent who works solely with these issues. If you need to get in touch with our student safety agent, you can do so at studskyddsombud@disk.su.se. You can read more about our student safety agent here.
