Danish-Swedish Ministerial Seminar on Higher Education

The Swedish Association of Student Unions (SFS) and the Danish National Union of Students (DSF) invites you to start the year with a high-level seminar on reforms to improve the quality of higher education.

Society is rapidly changing, yet the Swedish higher education system has not undergone any comprehensive reforms since the university reform of 1994. In Denmark, however, a series of reforms in the field of higher education have recently been implemented.

What can Sweden and Denmark learn from each others’ experiences to maintain high educational quality and student influence?
