What is your study programme?

As a UvA student, you get to decide who sits on the student councils. All council members are democratically elected. The Central Student Council (CSR) represents the entire UvA, while each individual faculty also has its own Faculty Student Council. This means you get to vote twice. 

  • The CSR consults with the UvA Executive Board (CvB). 
  • The faculty Student Councils consult with the dean of their faculty. 

The Student Councils deal with a range of issues, on which various stakeholders within the university voice opinions and adopt positions.
