The history of students’ scientific clubs and associations of the University dates back to the 20th years of the XIX century when they have become an integral part of university life. During the next one hundred years student’s scientific work has been changing its forms, but never stopped. The Student Scientific Society of the University as the only focal point for scientific clubs and associations of students and post-graduate students was founded in 1936. It was one of the very first organizations of this kind. The first chairman of the SSS was B. M. Krasovitsky who later became a doctor of chemistry, a professor, a corresponding member of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine. Since 2004 the Student Scientific Society of the University has been restructured in accordance with the requirements of modern classical university.

Karazin Kharkiv National University a proposal was made about the establishment of a self-government body for postgraduate students, doctoral students and young scientists.
