Student Council

One of the distinctive characteristics of UCIS, besides its emphasis on interdisciplinarity, is the presence and active participation of students. Various student associations work together in the UCIS Student Council. Their task is to advise the Board of UCIS, to cooperate with another and to organise interesting events for students involved in the various UCIS Master’s programmes. You can have a look at the agenda for upcoming events.

In the UCIS Student Council the following six student associations are represented: Aegee Utrecht, CS Ubuntu,  SIB-Utrecht,  UHSK, URIOS and UUMUN.
