Congratulations to you who have been accepted to Mälardalen University, and a warm welcome to Mälardalen’s Student Union!
This page contains all the information you may need to prepare for your life as a student.

Mälardalen’s Student Union is the “workers’ union” for students at MDU, and as a student at MDU you have the right to exercise student influence through Mälardalen’s Student Union.

As a university student, you are no longer just a recipient of knowledge, you are not just a passenger on an educational journey. You are one of the main characters who can make a difference. Your voice matters and your ideas matter.

Student influence is about us students being able to participate and influence our own educations. It is about us being allowed to take part in decision-making processes concerning our educations and our study environments. It’s about us being able to take part in shaping the future we want.

Us students are not too young or too inexperienced to make an impact. We have knowledge, we have thoughts, we have dreams.
We have the ability to change the world by changing our educations.

Become a member and influence your future!
