Students have the right to organize themselves in student councils at the academic unit level, at the institutional level, and at the national level.
Student organizations are elected every two (2) years by student votes and are based on applicable legislation. In cases where an individual elected to the student council completes his/her university studies, he/she is replaced by the next candidate in the order of the number of votes collected in the last election.
Student councils cannot be organized with other political and non-political structures outside the relevant higher education institutions. The modalities and procedures for their establishment, organization and functioning are set out in the statutes and regulations of higher education institutions in accordance with the applicable Law on Higher Education in Kosovo.
Student Organizations assist student services to equip all students with a student card as well as other extracurricular organizations to promote their studies, internships, recreation and other engagements.
In detail, the modalities and procedures for the establishment, organization and functioning of these councils are set out in the relevant regulations.
