What are you entitled to as a USC member?

  • If you are a member of student participation and receive an administrative scholarship of six months or more, you can make use of adapted studying.
  • Because you may incur study delays due to your participation work, you may receive financial support.


Through the University Joint Assembly, there are three committees related to the portfolios of the members of the Executive Board:

  • Strategy, ICT and Impact
  • Education, Research and Students
  • Finance, Staff and Property

During the committee meetings, items for the University Joint Assembly are pre-discussed and questions can be put to the member of the Executive Board present. Every USC member is free to attend committee meetings. There is no fixed format per member.


Every month, members of the USC write a column. In it, they explain what they have been working on in the past month and what is planned for the coming time.
