Universities Act requires that there are student representatives in university administration. The student representatives are regular students, who take part in the work of academic affairs committees, faculty councils, education councils and all the different committees and work groups within the university.
The representatives are chosen by the Student Union Board or the Representative Council, depending on the position to be filled. All student union members can apply for a student representative position. The student is the most knowledgeable expert of study matters and student life and so the work of the student representatives is essential to building a better university. AYY trains all student representatives and supports them in their work.
