Do you want to have a say in the quality of education within the PPLE programme ? Do you want to represent the opinions of your fellow students about particular courses they take? Do you want to work closely with staff, management and other representative boards? The Programme Committee might be something for you!

What is the Programme Committee?

All university programmes are legally required to have programme committees by virtue of the Dutch Higher Education and Research Act. The PPLE programme committee meets on a regular basis to discuss the quality of the teaching programmes (based on course and programme evaluations), and proposals for new policies and amendments to the Teaching and Examination Regulations. The programme committee is comprised of four lecturers and four students, all affiliated with PPLE. Generally, the committee meets six times a year. In addition, student representatives are expected to reach out actively to their fellows students.

The vacancy

We are looking for four student members. Ideally these students would represent all four majors and all three academic years. Student members are appointed for a one-year term, and are entitled to a fixed remuneration. Students who already served on the Programme Committee last year and wish to extend their term by another year are welcome to apply for an extension of their appointment.

Applications

Students who are interested in joining a programme committee are invited to apply for a position by sending a single PDF-file that contains a CV and a short motivation letter in which you explicate your interest and representative skills to the Programme Committee secretary, Ms. Rosanne Wollrabe, at pc-pple@uva.nl by Sunday, 15 September at the latest. Please indicate in your application in what year you are and (if relevant) what your major is.

The selection procedure will take place from 16 to 27 September.

Should you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact the Programme Committee secretary at pc-pple@uva.nl or reach out to any of the current staff members. Also check information about the committee on Canvas.
