The Student Parliament

The Student Parliament is the student’s of The University of Bergen’s political organization. It is stated in Norwegian Law that every educational institution should have a democratically elected student body, that make decisions on behalf of the students. We are to be consulted in all matters concerning the students, and we also suggest relevant political resolutions.

The Student Parliament meets once a month and consists of a total of 31 representatives, 24 of which are elected during the student elections. The remaining seven are faculty representatives elected through annual meetings on the faculties.

Green List is a party-politically independent student list that will work for a more sustainable, future-oriented and fair university in Bergen.

With a university that is considered a leader in research on climate and the environment, we want the University of Bergen to play a clearer role on the road to a more sustainable future for all of us. The university has also set itself the goal of becoming a climate-neutral university by 2030 – which means that we must act now.

Green List prioritises the environment and climate, and wants to contribute to the university’s green shift. The university also listens to our proposals when we recently received support for climate and environmental issues to become an integral part of the first semester studies at all faculties.

This year we will continue the important work with small and large measures that can make student life, campus, research and teaching better for the students, but also better for the environment. An efficient and fair university is also a sustainable university. Small measures mean something when it comes to tens of thousands of students and employees. Do you want to do something small for something big? Vote Green List this year!

Moderat Liste is a student political list with its roots planted in a liberal-conservative point of view. We are a committed group of students who are all passionate about the UiB student’s well-being, with a special focus on the student’s opportunity for personal development. We want the students to have all the opportunities they need to develop in the best possible way during their time at the university, and thus pursue our politics with regard to the individual’s right to freedom and equality.

Moderat Liste works hard to find feasible solutions to real problems that our fellow students experience in their everyday life. Our wish is that the university will always do its best to meet the students’ many different needs, and puts on the agenda topics such as the importance of thorough feedback after assessment situations, a more active interaction between the student and the work force he or she will one day meet, and last but not least, the improvement of students’ mental health.

After two long years the pandemic is finally almost over in our part of the world, and if there is one thing this time has taught us, it is the importance of taking care of and building each other up. Mental health is more important than ever, and it is especially true for us students. The time has come to rebuild the student and restore the opportunities needed to grow further, and enjoy a good and rewarding student life here in our wonderful city.

Our top candidates:

Realistlista

Main goals

  1. Better teaching
    More and better pedagogic knowledge by lecturers and greater use of science-based feedback
  2. Mental health
    A better psychologist service and making it easier to attend social events to help with a better social environment post pandemic
  3. Better student democracy
    More knowledge of what happens at, and better visibility of, the student parliament among general students

Follow us

Realistlista, the science party, is a politically independent party who will be a rational and objective voice at the student parliament. Problems will be met constructively for fast and effective solutions.

We care about the politics of knowledge at UiB and want higher pedagogic demands from lecturers, relevant work experience for students, further use of science based feedback and correct digitalization. Realistlista will work for a better study environment, by improving

chairs, air quality and opening hours. We want a higher focus on study environments and welfare at UiB.

The pandemic has had a highly negative impact on students’ mental health and welfare. Realistlista wants the Sammen psychologists service to be more visible, and for wait times to be shorter. Sammen should also better inform students about other mental health services than just their own and put students in contact with these.

Realistlista also think it’s important to make it easier for student organizations to arrange social gatherings that are easy to attend. This will be especially important for students that have had all, or most of, their time as students during the pandemic.

Student participation during the election is currently ridiculously low. Realistlista wants to lower the barrier of participation between students and student democracy. This will involve better information flow of information from the student parliament to students, being more visible at campus and actively involving students in the student democracy.

Realistlista is focusing on actual student needs and finding fast and effective solutions to their problems.

The Social Democratic List is an politcally independent list running for the student parlament at the University of Bergen this spring. Our list is comprised of motivated students from different faculties, and our goal is to make a difference for the students at the university.

Our policies are based on the principles of freedom, equality and solidarity, which in our opinion are fundamental values in student politics. We are working for a university for everyone, where all students have the same positive opportunity to reach their potential through education. Therefore, the quality of education and research must be improved.

This year we will focus on three main causes. Firstly we want to improve the university’s digital education, by revamping the applications and increasing the digital knowledge of professors. Secondly, the Social Democratic list will work to ensure better funding for student organisations. Lastly, we will fight to make Sammen give out breakfast for 10 kroners permanently, so that every student can afford a bright start to the day.

We will also focus on:

  • Making UiB participate in the womens day parade. 
  • Reducing the traffick on Høyden with aims of a car free campus
  • Re-establishing the half year membership in Sammen trening
  • Free internet newspapers for all students
  • A more sustainable university
  • Recording every lecture on campus

Our top candidates:

The Left Alliance

Main goals

  1. Better economy for students
    Broad measures are needed to improve students’ finances. The syllabus must be free at UiB, for example through a book loan. The scholarship must be increased. Student housing must become cheaper.
  2. Climate and environment
    UiB has to keep its promise to be climate neutral within 2030. Needless waste during renovation must end. Sammen must label products with Co2 emissions, as well as offer better vegetarian and vegan food.
  3. Health
    Expand UiB and Sammen’s health services, with special focus on cheaper dental health and a strengthened mental health service, as well as free contraception for students.

The Left Alliance works for a socialist, green and feminist policy.

For us, the financial situation for students is high on the priority list. The Left Alliance believes that current rental prices are too high, that the curriculum is too expensive and student scholarship is too low. These are contributing factors for why it is more difficult for students to make climate-friendly choices in everyday life. That’s not how it should be!

Environmental policy is also a red policy. Climate and environment must be taken seriously, and it must be easier for students to make climate-friendly choices. We will therefore work for the reuse of materials wherever possible, more vegan and vegetarian offerings in the canteens, CO2 labelling of food and ensure that UiB keeps its promise to become climate neutral by 2030.

Students’ health must also be improved. Therefore, we will work for cheaper dental health services, strengthen mental health services, and free contraception for students. We will also work to ensure that Sammen Helsefond includes medicines for students with chronic conditions.

The Left Alliance is working for a red policy with a green agenda!
