The VU has a number of parties that can be of great help when you encounter certain situations or problems. Here you can find some of these parties and their contact information.
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.
The FSR has a walk-in hour every Wednesday from 12.45 - 13.30 (room WN-M112). Feel free to pass by with questions and remarks. FSR can also be reached via email, telephone or WhatsApp.
