    Become a student representative

    Interested in joining the Study Programme Committee or Faculty Council?

    As a representative in the faculty council or committee of your programme, you help the university to get better. Not only that, it’s also a great learning opportunity and interesting experience, which will definitely come to use in your professional life: taking part in meeting, debating, working together as a team, learning how a university works, and so much more. It’s a nice way to meet some new people as well.

    What to expect?

    As a student representative, it’s important to be present and take actively part in the meetings. The programme committees meet at least twice a year and most of the time, once a month at most. The faculty councils meet at least 4 times a year. A meeting is usually 2 hours long.

    Some concrete tasks:

    • Prepare for the meeting (check the agenda and useful documents)
    • Add topics to the agenda yourself
    • What’s your personal opinion on the topics? If necessary, reach an agreement on the students opinion with your fellow student representatives
    • Take part in discussions and be the voice of students
    • Get back to the students
