It is appointed by law to have a representative advisory body at your faculty. This council, just like the Faculty Student Council at Delft University of Technology, has two rights: the right of assent and the right of advice. These rights are in place for regulations like the Teaching and Examination Regulations (Onderwijs en Examenreglement, OER) which are approved of every year, or for the appointment of a new member of the Faculty Board.
Besides that is the Faculty Council very critical about the policies at the university and tries to think of solutions for problems. Do you have any complaints or ideas, mail the Faculty Council at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Do you want to be kept up-to-date about the progress of the FC, follow them on Facebook.

The Faculty Student Council (FSC) is a 9-member student body that represents the interests of the students of the Faculty of Applied Sciences in a variety of areas, including the following:
- Faculty policy
The FSC is the the highest representative body available to students at the faculty level. As mentioned above, the main focus of the FSC is on policy formation. The council has consultation rights regarding the faculty’s budget, and a right of consent regarding the Teaching and Examination Regulations (Onderwijs en Examenreglement, OER), both of which it exercises on an annual basis. Besides that, the FSC is continuously kept up-to-date on the Faculty’s current business throughout the year, by way of various meetings and consultations. In short, by participating in various meetings at the faculty (or inter-faculty) level the FSC makes the opinion of students known to the policy makers of the faculty.
