We are still looking for 2nd/3rd year Medical Pharmaceutical Sciences Bachelor students for in the Year Representation. The Year Representation comprises of several students from the same year and the same major, and is chaired by the Commissioner of Education. The Year Representation evaluates courses after each period, so 4 times a year, during meetings with coffee, tea, and cookies (big plus right there). They discuss the courses they've had and offer feedback as to what worked well and what should be improved. The feedback is documented anonymously and the Commissioner of Education can use this feedback in Programme Commitee meetings.
Interested in joining the Year Representation? Send an email to email@example.com with your name, email address and telephone number. Don't hesitate to send an email even if you're in a different major or year than 2nd/3rd year MPS! Critical students who want to make education a bit better are always welcome!
The Year Representation (YR, formerly known as the "Jaarvertegenwoordiging" or "JVT") is the advisory council for the Programme Committee (PC) of the bachelors Biology and LS&T. The students of the YR make notice of problems and points of improvement in the bachelors that are not noticed by the PC. Complaints are mostly handled by the PC, but students can also go to members of the YR when they have issues or point of improvements regarding a course. Therefore, the YR has a good idea of what the general opinion of students is regarding their study programme. The feedback of the YR is discussed during the meetings of the PC and can cause big changes in courses. Therefore, the YR is a very influential coucil.
The YR consists of 5-15 students from every major. This way, the YR can discuss most of the courses that are given. After each period (so four times a year) the YR gets together and discusses every course from the previous period. The Commissioner of Education from GLV Idun chairs these meetings and is responsible for communicating the evaluations to the PC.
There are two different YRs; one for the first year students and one for the second and third year students. Everyone is free to join a YR and give their opinion on courses. Feedback on courses is very important, and GLV Idun is always on the lookout for critical thinkers. Send and e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to become a YR member. You can join at any time of the year!
If you want to look into the YR minutes, please use the menu on the right. Select your year and then the period.
Note: Most course evaluations of the YR are in Dutch. Would you like to read the course evaluations for certain courses in English? Please contact the board (email@example.com), or stop by at the board room (5173.0171) or 't Huisje (Oostersingel 67, UMCG Noord).
Note: As of 2018-2019, evaluations for first year courses of 2017-2018 or older are left out intentionally, as these are no longer relevant due to the revised curriculum.
