Stand or vote at the 2013 election
In the period 25–28 November, students will once again be electing representatives to the numerous councils, boards and committees at the university. This is the perfect opportunity for budding student politicians to take centre stage – while others can seek to gain influence by voting for their favourite candidates.
You are welcome to stand for election to – or vote for candidates for – the AU Board, the local boards of studies, academic councils and/or PhD committees.
Register your candidacy before 8 November – the earlier the better
If you would like to put your name forward for election, you can do so from 25 October until 8 November. However, it is a good idea to submit your candidacy registration form as early as possible in the period so that any errors can be corrected before the deadline expires.
For additional details about standing for election, see www.au.dk/en/election – it is also a good idea to contact a current member of your local board of studies to find out more.
Become active and find out more about student politics
You do not necessarily have to be elected to office to make your influence felt. On many degree programmes and in many main academic areas, there are academic committees and university political groups that meet to discuss what they would like to see changed in their programmes or at the university.
If you would like to find out more about student politics, contact the members of your local board of studies or academic council – or one of the student political organisations.
