An Ombudsstudent is an independent point of contact for students of a specific study programme. The College and Graduate School of Communication both have an Ombudsstudent, one for the Bachelor's programme of Communication Science and one for the (pre-)Master's programmes of Communication Science.
The Communication Science Ombudsstudent is an independent point of contact for Communication Science students. Students can contact the Ombudsstudent with complaints as well as ideas and suggestions for the study programme. The Ombudsstudent either directs the student to the correct person or handles the question with the education institute him- or herself in order to find a solution together with the student in question.
The Ombudsstudent maintains contact with the Director of Education, the Programme Committee and the Faculty Student Council, among others.
In the academic year of 2021-2022, we have two Ombudsstudents:
Do you have questions, complaints or ideas about the Bachelor's programme? Don't hesitate to contact me!Willemijn Pameijer, Ombudsstudent of the Bachelor's in Communication Science Send an email to Willemijn
Hello! I'm Robin. If you have any questions about the Communication Science (pre-)Master's, living in Amsterdam, university life, or anything else in between, feel free to send me a message. I'll be more than happy to help!Robin Kuiten, Ombudsstudent of the (pre-)Master's programmes in Communication Science Send an email to Robin
Besides the Ombudsstudent, the Master's students are represented by student representatives. Student representatives meet with the programme staff in monthly meetings to bring about current issues in their cohort, occasionally give input on intended policy revisions and organise events interesting for Master's students.
The student representatives are active in various social media groups and can be approached during and after class. You can also always contact the Ombudsstudent.
All matters discussed with the Ombudsstudents will be treated with full confidentiality.
