The student councils promote the interests of students within the UvA. The annual student council elections are an opportunity for students to show their involvement with education and the UvA.
Each faculty has its own Faculty Student Council (FSR), and there is a Central Student Council (CSR) for the entire University. The individual faculty student councils convene with the deans of their respective faculties, and the Central Student Council convenes with the Rector Magnificus of the Executive Board.
All students enrolled at the UvA are eligible to vote for parties and candidates in the annual elections for both the faculty student councils and the Central Student Council.
