What does a Student Assessor do?

A Student Assessor advises the departmental board on student matters and educational matters from a student viewpoint. In this way, the Assessor is your link to the departmental board.

The faculty of Humanities is divided into four departments. These departments are each headed by a board consisting of a Departmental Head, an Education Director, a Research Director and a Student Assessor. The four Department Assessors communicate with the faculty board. The humanities board also consists of a faculty wide Student Assessor, Wessel van Wijngaarden.
