Rindi, Gotland's Student Union
As a student of Campus Gotland, you can be a member of Rindi, our student union. Rindi’s basic task is to make sure that your study time is as effective, creative and enjoyable as possible.
The student union’s task is to monitor the quality of courses and study programmes and to ensure their quality is as high as possible. The union is also the instance that will represent you in the event of a dispute with the university. The union also organises a large number of social activities for its members, covering everything from street performance art to bar activities and choir singing.
Monitoring courses and programmes
One of the student union’s key tasks is to represent the students’ interests in course and programme issues. Rindi is represented in all groups that decide over study programmes at Campus Gotland. We have representatives on the Planning Council, for example. This allows the student union to influence the courses and programmes in accordance with the students’ needs and requirements.
At Rindi’s website www.rindi.com you can find information about upcoming events for students, both on campus and in the student union. Bookmark our website and stay updated.
