Life Sciences Representatives

Life Sciences Representatives (LSR) is a student initiative to represent the interests and rights of all Master's students of the Graduate School of Life Sciences at Utrecht University. You can directly contact us via lsr@umcutrecht.nl.

Constitution

The LSR consists of at least one Masters student of every programme within the School, and preferably one from each track of the Masters in Neuroscience & Cognition. All student members of the Educational Committee (EC) and Board of Studies (BoS) are members of the LSR. In addition, at least one representative of the LS-associated student associations will take place in the LSR.

Functions

  • represent the interests of all Master's students of the GSLS at the educational level;
  • feedback between the student members of the EC and BoS and the rest of the students;
  • identify problems Master students experience within the course of their studies and try to resolve them, either by:
    • reporting and discussing the problems or complaints in the EC, BoS or programme coordinator meetings;
    • taking direct action or passing on the problem to those who are fit to handle it.
  • fill the vacant student positions in the EC and BoS at the start of each new academic year;
  • increase the coherence between the different programmes within the GSLS;
  • promotion of the LSR and it’s functions to the new Masters students every year;
  • handle the applications of putative new LSR members at the beginning of every academic year;
