Like all students in Sweden, those at SLU can join a student union. At SLU there are eight different student unions, and students can choose one depending on their programme. Forestry students have several options. The Alnarp-based student union is called ASK (Alnarps studentkår).

Besides ASK, there is a student union in Umeå called Skogshögskolans Studentkår . You don't need to study in Umeå to join, but becoming a member gives you a chance to visit "the northern capital" and join some events there. Joining this union automatically makes you a member of IFSA (International Forestry Students´ Association). Members of this union are eligible to apply for funding to travel to events organized by IFSA or to cover fieldwork costs. To find out more, visit their website.
If you are already enrolled at SLU, additional information is available on the student web.
