The Faculty Student Council (FSR) is the official consultative body for students at the Faculty of Sciences. In Dutch the faculty is known as the Facultaire Studentenraad der Betawetenschappen. The FSR monitors the quality of education and represents the interests of the students within the faculty’s decision-making procedures. The FSR forms a link between students and the faculty board and thus makes an important contribution to decision-making.
You can consult study advisors for academic advice, or questions regarding personal academic supervision. Study advisors are also there to help you with problems that may affect your academic progress (personal problems, illness, academic proficiency problems and progress delays).
