The exercise of authority can be said to be an expression of the powers of society in relation to its citizens. Characteristic of the exercise of authority is that the individual is in a position of dependency. It is therefore of great importance that cases involving the exercise of authority are handled in a fair and legally certain manner. One of the most important tasks of the Swedish Higher Education Authority is to safeguard fairness and legal certainty for students. However, the individual higher education institution has the primary responsibility for ensuring that students’ cases are handled in a fair and legally certain manner.
