Members of the boards of studies

The dean determines the number of members in each board of studies, however, a minimum of 4 and a maximum of 10 members. The boards of studies consist of an equal number of representatives from the academic staff (ViP) and students. The academic staff are elected by and among the academic staff for a three-year period. The students are elected by and among the students for a one-year period. The composition of the study board should as far as possible reflect the programs covered by the board of studies. The chairperson of the board of studies is elected by the board among the academic staff in the board for a three-year period. The vice-chairperson of the board of studies is elected among the student members in the board.
