About University Board

The students in the board are elected in direct person elections each spring, with all semester-registered students at UiB as constituency and potential candidates. The students’ task is, in particular, to express the students’ views in cases that have been submitted to the University Board and to ensure that the students’ interests are adequately addressed, but still see this in the context of the university as a whole. The Student Parliament has no authority over the student representatives in the University Board, but they are dependent on good cooperation with the student democracy in order to carry out matters of importance to the students.
