Year Representation (YR)

The Year Representation (YR) is the advisory council for the Programme Committees (PC) of the bachelor's Biology, LS&T and BME. 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 points of improvement 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 council. 

The YR consists of ±10 students from every program. 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 six different YRs; one for the first-year students of Biology, LS&T and BME, and one for the second and third year students of Biology, LS&T and BME. 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. Applying for the Year Representation is not necessary; simply send an email with your name, phone number, and email address to board@idun.nl. You will then be invited for the first meeting, which will be planned in due time after period Ia.
