Also financial matters and equality in daily student life are discussed. One student representative each is elected by the student body. Obligatory is a monthly meeting date.
To ensure the legality of the examinations and compliance with the examination regulations, there is the Examination Board. The examination board consists of professors, university staff and one student representative each for Bachelor and diploma. For disputes in exam matters, this committee is the most important body. To the examination board you have to address complaints and problems like:
- the recognition of examinations
- the setting of grades
- apply for admission to the second re-examination
This committee, which is composed of equal numbers of staff members and students, advises on study and examination regulations, general matters of study, teaching evaluations and has advisory functions to the faculty council. Students who are not members of the Student Council can also take part here.
The senate is the highest body of the university with student participation and elects together with the enlarged senate the rector. Otherwise, the Senate mainly takes a stand on the rulings of the Rectorate and considers the orientation of the university. Only 4 students are elected to the Senate, which is why it is a nice feature that one of the senators was from the field of hydro science in the legislature 2016/17.
