We are now looking for:

What is Academic Council?

The Academic Council members are appointed by the university college, those referred to in paragraph 2 on a proposal by the respective department council, the person referred to in paragraph 3 on the proposal of the Executive Board of the language center, those referred to in paragraph 4 and 5 on a proposal by the President after consulting the higher education community and those referred to in paragraph 6 on the proposal of the Student Union. Council’s term of office is three years. The representative of an institution must have a doctoral examination. Each member has a personal deputy.

What is Department Council?

Each subject at the school belongs to an institution, and each institution is led by an institutional council. There they make decisions regarding teaching, what period courses are to be arranged, what is to be dealt with in courses and how students should be judged etc. Therefore, it is incredibly important that The Student Union have competent representatives in the council, so that we can ensure that students’ opinions are heard when the decisions are made.
