The board of studies is an elected body that, in collaboration with the director of studies and the AU Studies administration, manages courses and exams. Among other things, your board of studies processes the case if you apply for exemption exemptions to rules, credit transfer, preliminary approval of courses in other places (including when studying abroad) or any other deviation from the academic regulations or the decisions concerning exams.
The board of studies also provides input and proposes changes to the academic regulations, ensures that the programs develops its course offerings and teaching, and follows up on course evaluations.
The board of studies comprises an equal number of academic staff and student representatives, so this is also where you as student can influence the conditions of your studies.
