and will cost SEK 795 per person, which also includes transportation from the City Hall.
Dress is formal attire (White tie with tails) which means tail coat for the gentlemen and evening dress for the ladies.

Only winners who are members of their student union are eligable to claim a prize.

Please state your academic title correctly, or we will have to change it manually.
Undergraduate: 4 year program (240 p) or less.
Graduate: more than 4 years, for example civil engineers, law students or if you are taking your masters.
Postgraduate: Ph.D candidates.
All medical students, i.e. those studying to be doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, odontologists, BMA etc. are titled Medical student. This does not include students of complementary medicine (naprapathy, chiropractic, homeopathy) because they do not have the right to an academic title at the moment.
If your companion already has a degree, you state it according to the international standard e.g. BSc, BA, MSc, PhD, MD.
If you have stated your title correctly it will look something like this:
Undergraduate Mr Karl Karlsson

Winners will only be able to buy tickets for the banquet and not the prize ceremony. The tickets will be sent to the adress given at the registration.

Stockholm Federation of Student Unions, SSCO, is an organisation for cooperation between student unions in the Stockholm region.
Through our more than 50 members unions, SSCO represents approximently 80 000 students. Founded in 1896, the organisation's original focus
was providing services for the students in Stockholm. Since then, SSCO has moved towards working as a lobby organisation.
SSCO's main focus today is influencing politicians on the local, regional and national levels. SSCO continues its work towards
policy makers in all levels of government to improve the situation of the students in Stockholm and to strengthen Stockholm as a leading region
for education in Sweden. By bringing student related issues to the attention of politicians and other offcials and by working to
maintain existing collaborations, SSCO aims to secure students long-term influence in the region.
SSCO has three main tasks:
- To protect and develop Stockholm as the leading region of education in Sweden.
- To offer meeting places for students and student unions in Stockholm.
- To provide students with common services.
During the Swedish holiday walpurgis SSCO annually arranges the traditional student festivities during the celebrations at Skansen.
