Political student organisations

At Maastricht University, students share in the political decision making process. Via annual elections, student representatives get into the University Council and the different Faculty Councils. These councils are advisory organs to the executive board of this University or the Faculties. There are several student parties that operate on faculty level and a few that work university wide. 

DOPE
DOPEDOPE: “Deskundige, Ongebonden, Pragmatische Eenheid (Professional independent pragmatic unit), is a student representation party with members in the Faculty councils and the University council. DOPE aims to use its seats in the councils to influence the decision making process within the University and puts issues onto the agenda which students consider to be important. Your contribution is important! So, if you have any questions, ideas or if you are interested in making a difference within your Faculty or the University and gaining experience in co-decision making processes, do not hesitate to contact us!
