Studies Conference


The Studies Conference is the advisory body of the Director of Studies. 50% of conference members are  students and 50% are lecturers. In addition to representation in the Senate and the faculty conferences, students are involved in quality assurance of teaching and in the study and teaching organisation.

The tasks of a study conference includes:

  • recommendation and comment on planning of teaching

  • advice on study organisational matters
  • suggestions to the Director(s) of Studies to improve the study conditions

In addition, it is recommended that an advisory member from the group of persons concerned with administrative tasks relating to the organisation of studies is consulted.
