HOW DO STUDY BOARDS REPRESENT MY INTERESTS?
Your Study Board is in charge of planning, developing and ensuring the quality of your specific study program. This includes revising and adopting the program regulations; creating coherence in the academic development of the study program; and ensuring that the teaching methods, evaluations, and curricula are optimal for your specific program.
At an operational level, the Study Board also handles credit transfers, complaints, dispensations and the approval of budgets.
