Programme Committee

The Programme Committee is an advisory and consultative body at programme level. It is a platform where students can have a say in their study programme and can join lecturers in thinking of ways to improve the quality and content of teaching and education. Programme Committees are instituted for a particular study programme or group of study programmes.

A Programme Committee is instituted by law. The Programme Committee consists of an equal representation of both lectures and students. The Dutch Higher Education and Research Act (WHW) defines the duties of the Programme Committee as follows:

  • To issue advice on the Teaching and Examination Regulations.
  • To assess the manner in which the Teaching and Examination Regulations are implemented each year (the Programme Committee carries out an assessment by examining the teaching evaluations, the course catalogue and the course syllabi).
  • To issue both solicited and unsolicited advice to the programme director, or the College or Graduate School director on all matters concerning the education within the study programme.

In addition, the Programme Committees at the Faculty of Humanities are also asked to nominate courses for the Faculty Education Award.
