Student unions and nations
Uppsala University has several student unions and student nations. You can choose to become a member of one or more unions and nations. They offer everything from student aid to study breaks. A membership can give you entry to the nations, or the opportunity to apply for scholarships.
You can become a member of the student unions and student nations through the website www.uppsalastudent.com.
When you sign up, you get a membership for one semester. At Uppsala University, the Student Card ("STUK") is used as a membership card for student nations and unions. It can also be called a "nation card" or "student ID".
As a registered student or a doctoral student at Uppsala University you automatically receive the Student Card when you are a member of a student union or nation.
The Student Card also gives you access to student discounts, and serves as a student ID when you, for example, buy bus tickets with a student discount.
