These are some of the things you can influence when you vote in this year’s university election. This year, students can vote for representatives to the AU Board, the academic councils and the boards of studies. PhD students can also vote for representatives to the PhD committees.

They make a difference

The various councils, boards and committees discuss important topics. The boards of studies, for example, draft academic regulations, ensure follow-up on teaching evaluations and approve exam schedules. On the agenda at the AU Board meetings are issues such as AU’s budget and strategy as well as general development trends in education policy.
