What is the Senate?

The Senate is the central body of the University. It is here that the most important decisions are made, such as filling professorships and establishing and revising degree programmes. The representatives in the Senate are elected in the various status groups of the university (professors, staff, students) or are members by virtue of office (Rectorate, Equal Opportunities Officer, Dean). We students have 6 representatives there, which is about 20 % of the members.
