Nomination Student member Programme Board '22-'23
Nominate a fellow student to be a Student Member in the International Studies Programme Board!
Who do you consider to be the best candidate for the job?
In the coming week, you will be invited by email to send in a nomination for student members in the International Studies Programme Board. In your opinion, who has the best qualities to represent you in the Board?
To give you an idea, useful skills for the board members include:
• willingness to make a serious contribution to the International Studies programme;
• ability to think issues through from various perspectives;
• trustworthiness and discreteness;
• good networking and communication skills.
The Programme Board meets every month (1 hour meetings). Programme Board student representatives are welcome to join the MT after these Programme Board meetings as well. Both meetings are usually on Mondays.
Nominees must be students of the BA International Studies. Selected candidates will be invited for an interview with Dr. Jaap Kamphuis and the chair of the programme (the staff members of the Programme Board).
What does being a student member in the Programme Board entail?
Student members bring up and discuss important issues from the student’s perspective. Also, they can be asked for advice, for example on changes in the curriculum or questions from the Education Committee. In addition to Programme Board meetings, there are also joint meetings with the Board of Examiners (± 2 times per year). Furthermore, you may also be asked to join other meetings (for example with the Faculty Board).
Being a student member in the Programme Board offers a great learning experience and the ability to meet up with a broad variety of people involved in the programme.
The current student representatives, Sophia Healy and Jess Whatmore, are appointed until 30 September 2021. Their successor(s) will be appointed from 1 October 2022.
