The Geosciences’ Faculty Council elections will take place from 8 to 10 May 2017. The student’s membership on the council is from 1 September 2017 to 31 August 2018.
You can nominate yourself for the student section of the Faculty Council. As a member of the student section you are able to apply for an administrative grant.


You can stand as a candidate until 30 March. There ar two possibilities:
