(Updated 1 May 2019)
Each faculty at the University of Copenhagen has its own academic council.
The Academic Council advises the dean on the internal distribution of grants and on research, education and plans for knowledge exchange. It also makes recommendations to assessment committees and confers PhDs, doctorates and prizes.
The dean chairs the Academic Council of the Faculty of Social Sciences. In addition to the dean, the Council has five members drawn from academic staff – representing the faculty’s academic sub-division into five departments – and three students. Three members of the technical and administrative staff attend as observers.
