Programme Committee

Every Bachelor's and Master's programme has a programme committee. Half of the members of this committee are chosen by and from the students in the programme, with the other half consisting of members of the department's academic personnel.

Check the links below for the members of your programme committee.

What does the programme committee do?

The programme committee concerns itself with guaranteeing and improving the quality of the programme. Its most important tasks are:

  • Giving advice about the education and examination regulations and the assessment and implementation thereof.
  • Protecting the quality of the programme, together with the programme coordinator, by carrying out evaluations of courses and curriculum.
  • Giving advice to the programme coordinator, the director of education or the dean about all matters concerning the education in the programme.

Quality control can refer to the organisation of the department, the lectures, and the evaluation of the courses. Education evaluations that are filled out by students (often in the last class of the course) are carefully assessed and discussed. The programme committee notifies the lecturer in question of the results so agreements can be made to improve the level of education.

Do you have ideas, feedback, or complaints about lectures, lecturers, exams, or anything else relating to your studies? Contact your programme committee. Everything will be discussed anonymously and they will then discuss it with the lecturer in question.
