Board of Studies

In cooperation with The Director of Studies and the Study Administration, the Board of Studies organises your degree program. The Board of Studies consists of 8 members with an equal representation of students and academic staff. The members are elected at the university elections. For information about the university elections, please read more here.

The primary task for the Board of Studies is to ensure the organisation, performance and development of your degree programme, teaching activities as well as exams. For instance, this includes composition of degree programmes and suggestions for changes to the academic regulations for your degree program. Moreover, it includes follow-up on evaluations of the education and teaching, and discussions of matters of importance to your degree program.

In the Standard Rules of Procedure for Boards of Studies at Aarhus University, you can learn more about the Board of Studies, including its framework and tasks.

Under Meetings you can find the minutes from previous meetings (from October 2017 only in Danish) and keep up with current topics of discussion.

If you have any questions for the Board of Studies, you can find contact information here.

If you have any study-related matters you wish for the Board of Studies to discuss, you may contact the deputy chairman of the Board of Studies (always a student representative) who, in collaboration with the chairman, will include the matter on the agenda for an upcoming meeting.
