Student Representatives — who are we, and what do we do for students?

The Student Representatives (SR) are the voice of the Faculty’s students. As a legal body of FASoS, they work together with staff members to improve the study programmes and the FASoS education environment.

Their main work is to represent the voice and interests of FASoS students (at the BA, Pre-MA, or MA levels) in most decision-making bodies of the Faculty.

The SR team consists of 29 members who are directly and indirectly elected by the students of FASoS, representing students in seven Faculty bodies. The Student Representatives meet weekly to discuss and put forth proposals to improve the quality of student life at the Faculty in fields like education, facilities, diversity, etc.

Student Representatives sit in the following Faculty bodies:

  • Educational Programme Committees (EPC)*
    • Arts & Culture
    • European Studies
    • Digital Society
  • Graduate Programme Committees (GPC)**
  • Education Management Team (OMT)*
  • Library Committee*
  • Complaints Committee*
  • Faculty Board*
  • Faculty Council**

*Indirectly elected by the Student Representatives team.

** Directly elected by the students of FASoS/of the relevant cohort.

Furthermore, the FASoS SR are led by an internally elected steering board which operates in accordance with the Governance Code of the Student Representative. The SR team is organised in internal working groups that work on specific topics regarding education, facilities, communications, and employability. The work of these working groups and the SR as a whole is officially communicated openly to the FASoS community through the biannual reports published by the Student Representatives, and through streamlined communication with FASoS students and staff.

If you have a problem or an idea, feel free to contact us. We are always happy to receive comments and suggestions about the study programmes, the Faculty’s facilities, or broader topics about education at FASoS. Students can also come to us with problems such as disagreements with tutors, confusion about the structure or content of your study, or help carrying out a project at the Faculty.

Do you want to get in touch? Send us an email at studentrep@maastrichtuniversity.nl, or reach out through our social media on Facebook (@studentrepfasos) or Instagram (@studentrep). Although we probably won’t see each other in person soon, you can always ask us for a meeting via zoom.

Want to get involved? There are several positions open for you to join our team and represent your fellow students. Keep an eye out on our social media platforms for more information.
