Board of Studies

The role of the Board of Studies (‘Opleidingscommissie’) is to help safeguard the quality of the degree programme, by giving advice to the AUC governance and management team on its quality and the education being offered. In particular it performs an annual evaluation of the way in which the Academic Standards and Procedures (ASP) have been implemented, and advises on any changes. 

The Board of Studies has eight members: half of them are academic staff that teach at AUC and half are AUC students. The AUC Student Council is responsible for nominating the four student members, and for ensuring that all three majors are represented and at least one second-year and one third-year student is included. The academic staff in the four areas (humanities, sciences, social sciences, academic core) nominate the four staff members, one from each area.
