Student representation

What can a student representative do in an international PhD programme, which has students living in faraway countries?

•    To be a link between the students of the PhD Program and the faculty stuff
•    Go to faculty meetings to be “the voice” for the PhD students
•    If any of the student has any kind of questions they can always contact the student representative
•    Sometimes there are students with new ideas, but they are too shy to say it. Student representative is there to contact. He/she can present the idea to the faculty and stuff
•    Last but not least, having a student representative contributes to the overall success of the PhD programme
