Call for a Education Council

How should the strategic money for the education be used? How the University follows the quality of the education? How the feedback is utilised? What kind of motions should the University make in education politics?

The Education Council supports the Rectors in enhancing the education, initiating motions for education politics and development, and evaluates the quality of graduate and postgraduate education. The members in Education Council are a versatile representation of the areas of expertise and of different sciences in the University.
