Student at the department

Tinget – the fraternity group at FLoV

The fraternity group Tinget was founded in 2016 and is primarily a fraternity group directed to students at the Department of Philosophy, Linguistics and Theory of Science, but students from other parts of the University are of course welcome. 

Special pedagogical support

Special learning support is intended for students who have disabilities or dyslexia and need further support and coordination of such support. You are given a coordinator who can show you what special support is available and how to get it. Examples of such support are note taking, customised course literature, mentoring, special software and adapted examinations. We look at your specific needs and together decide what support is best for you.

In order to get access to the special pedagogical support, you need documentation to prove that you have a disability. A disability also needs to be long-term; that is to say not temporary. The supporting documentation required is a doctor’s certificate or a certificate from a psychologist. For students with dyslexia, speech therapists and specialist teachers also issue certificates.

For more information about special pedagogical support contact our Study Counsellor Peter Johnsen or one of our central coordinators

More information about the adapted examinations can be found here.

Students' Health and Safety Representatives (SAMO)

Henrik Bergius

SAMO is an acronyme for the Swedish term studentarbetsmiljöombud and it is a student equivalent to  a work environment representative. 

Study environment means the physical, psychological and social circumstances that are of significance for the students' well-being and how they function in their study situation.

The head of each department is responsible for the study and work environment and, in the first instance, you should contact your head of department if you have any problems or views about your study environment. You can also contact your student union or a student work environment representative. A SAMO represents fellow students with regard to study environment issues within, for instance, a department.

The role of a student work environment representative:

  • to convey their own and their fellow students' views to persons in charge,
  • to take part in work environment inspections,
  • authorised to request that measures be taken if deficiencies are detected in the study environment,
  • will not take any measures themselves; instead they work together with e.g. teachers, heads of departments and the work environment representatives chosen by the employees, and their student union,
  • are part of a network of student work environment representatives from other parts of the university who share experiences and exchange ideas and are able to go on work environment courses,
  • appointed by each respective student union,
