The UvA Student Council elections will take place from Monday, 31 May until Friday, 4 June 2021. Student Councils represent the interests of UvA students. They get involved with important issues such as student housing, educational quality, the binding study advice (BSA) and sustainability.
Each faculty has its own Faculty Student Council (FSR), and there is a Central Student Council (CSR) for the UvA as a whole. The Faculty Student Councils liaise with the dean of their faculty, while the Central Student Council liaises with the UvA's Executive Board. There are a number of different parties that put forward their views on the important issues that the Student Councils get involved with. As a UvA student, you can use your vote to help decide who sits on the FSR and who sits on the CSR and by doing so help to create a better university.
On Monday morning 31 May all UvA students will receive an official email giving access to vote. Students can vote until Friday 4 June. More information about the candidates and the parties can be found in the online magazine.
Do you need some help deciding who to vote for? Answer the questions in the UvA vote compass (Kieswijzer) and find out which party best reflects your views. You can also listen to the election debate with the CSR and FSR of your faculty on Slim Radio!
