Have you considered the benefits of actively participating in the university elections and voting for a good candidate? By voting, you show your support for the candidate you want to represent you and your interests e.g. on your board of studies.

This year, students can vote for representatives to the AU Board, the academic councils and the boards of studies. If you are a PhD student, you can also vote for representatives to the PhD committees. If you don’t know who to vote for, you can find your candidate in the candidate list (in Danish).

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.

Read more about the various councils, boards and committees on the election website.
