Dear Research Master’s student,

We would like to introduce ourselves as the members of the OLC (opleidingscommissie / education program committee) of our Research Master. Our committee consists of the following three teacher members:

  • Erik Bijleveld
  • Tessa Lansu
  • Gero Lange

We also have three student-members:

  • Michelle Pingel (second year)
  • Rianne Weggemans (second year)
  • Konrad Schweizer (first year)

The OLC is founded to protect the quality of the research master. The student members represent all students and their opinions when the board of the research master makes decisions about the education that’s being offered. The student members are the link between you (the students) and the professors and lecturers.

During our meetings we evaluate all the courses to make sure that the educational programme will be further improved. We take into account the student-evaluations and the teacher reports. Besides that, we advise the board of the research master when they are establishing the EER (Evaluations and Examination Regulations; consisting of all the rights and obligations of students and teachers) and about other cases we as students and teachers consider as being important.

For you as a student, this means that if anything is unclear, not well organized or unfair, please let us know! You can contact us via email, or you can approach us in person during lectures or in the hallway for example. We are always available for your suggestions! And last but not least, you can always give your anonymous opinion by filling in the course evaluations.

Kind regards,

Michelle, Rianne and Konrad
