Programme committees

Social Sciences

Every programme has a Programme committee, the so-called 'opleidingscommissie'. The members are appointed by the Dean of the Faculty. Half of the members are students of the relevant programme, the other half consists of faculty members.

The programme committee is the most important advisory body on programme level for the management. The committee has rights granted by law.

The Programme committee's tasks are as follows:

  • give advice on the Teaching and Examination Regulations
  • yearly evaluation of how the Teaching and Examination Regulations have been executed
  • give advice, upon request or upon own initiative, about the management and structure of the programme
  • give advice, upon request or upon own initiative, about anything concerning the education within the programme.

Members of the OC are appointed by the dean FMG for a maximum period of 2 years (can be renewed) on the recommendation of the director of the GSSS.
