The Role

As a Year Representative, you work together with other students from the same study year to improve the quality of the courses. A meeting, usually lasting 1 up to 2 hours, will be held at the end of each block. Meetings will be chaired by a Quest board member and the programme director or coordinator will also be present. The goal is to discuss ways to improve the programme and to produce qualitative feedback that cannot be obtained in another way. Topics that will be discussed are e.g. the course objectives, tutorials, reading material, lecturers, and exams.

The Benefits

You will help the Faculty of Economics and Business improve the quality of their programmes, which is really valued. Furthermore, by being a Year Representative you will gain some valuable extra-curricular experience that helps your CV stand out more. Furthermore, the Board has decided to formalize the Year Representative function, in the form of a Certificate. This Certificate will yield as a proof to external parties (e.g. study associations, companies) that the student was indeed doing extra-curricular activities besides the studies.
