There is an increasing demand from students and their organisations all over Europe for involvement

in quality assurance. Today, this demand is met with a wide international understanding that student

involvement is a key factor in quality assurance. Student representatives and organisations are involved in

the development and execution of quality assurance processes in many higher education institutions. While

involvement is desirable, it puts higher demands on student organisations to act professionally.

Sweden has a long tradition of student involvement in higher education. Swedish legislation entitles

students to representation in all decision-making and preparatory bodies at universities. At Lund University

this has evolved into a student partnership model where student representatives have full insight as equal

partners in university management. This has been a successful and appreciated model. This paper discusses

how the partnership model has evolved, how it is maintained and how the student voice has changed. (Less)
