The 17 membership organizations come from a range of different institutions; from universities to music academies each proportionally represented by mandate.[3] DSF represents approximately 170.000 students, with the majority enrolled in universities.

International workEdit

DSF, as a member of the European Students' Union, contributes to the advancement of European higher education, often from the perspective of the Bologna Process.[4]

DSF also collaborates with the nordics students’ unions.[5] Similarly, in the Nordic Presidential Meeting (NOM), where also students from Greenland is represented, DSF takes part in the sharing of national experiences and discus larger trends in the international development of the sector.[6][7][8]

Membership OrganizationsEdit

The Student Council of the University of Copenhagen is the biggest membership organization of DSF.

The 17 member organizations vary in scope and priorities, and thus participate in the national student politics of DSF differently. As of 2020, the member organizations are:
