University elections - Your vote counts!

University elections will be held at AU from 11 to 14 November. As a PhD student, you are eligible to vote for representatives to the AU Board, your academic council, your PhD committee and your Board of Studies.

2019.09.12 | Liv Frank

This year, PhD students can stand for election - or vote for candidates - to the Board, the Academic Councils and the PhD committees. If you are enrolled in a master's programme and you are a non-employed PhD student you can also vote and stand for election for the Board of Studies. 





Gain influence on your work and study conditions as a PhD student 

The university elections are your chance to influence decisions regarding your PhD programme and your workplace through the university's democratic decision-making bodies. 

PhD students have the right to be represented at PhD committee meetings, which gives them voting rights. But this requires that representatives stand for election and get voted in. 

Stand up for election in the period 

If you are interested in standing for election, you can register your candidacy from Thursday 17 October at 9:00 to Friday 25 October at 12:00. However, it is a good idea to submit your candidacy registration from electronically as early as possible in the period so that any errors can be corrected before deadline expires.
