Two figures having a conversation

What is a programme committee?

The Faculty has five programme committees, which meet on a regular basis to discuss the quality of the teaching programmes (based on course and programme evaluations), proposals for new policies and proposed amendments to the Teaching and Examination Regulations. Programmes are legally required to have programme committees by virtue of the Dutch Higher Education and Research Act. Generally, such committees meet six times a year. Programme committees must be comprised of lecturers and students affiliated with the programmes concerned.

The vacancies

The Faculty seeks student members for the following programme committees:

  • Bachelor in Law (first-, second- or third-year Bachelor’s students)
  • Bachelor and Master Tax law
  • Master programmes in Dutch
  • Master programmes in English
  • Bachelor PPLE

Student members are appointed to programme committees for a one-year term. Students who already served on a programme committee last year and wish to extend their term by another year are welcome to apply for an extension of their appointment.


Students who are interested in joining a programme committee are invited to apply for a position by sending a CV and a short motivation letter in one PDF-file to the programme committee secretary: by 13 September 2020 at the latest. Please indicate in your application what kind of degree programme you are taking (name of your Bachelor (year 1, 2 or 3) and your Master/Master’s track).

The selection process will be held at the end of September.
