Elections for the student council of Wageningen University started this week and continue until 31 May. The two parties fighting it out, PSF and VeSte, have a good mix of Dutch and international candidates. But what exactly do they aim to achieve for international students and education? A quick glance at their programmes reveals that improving communication is top priority.
VeSte’s plans also focus on improving communication. For example, they think that the English translation of the Student Charter, which is a summary of all official regulations, should be made easier to understand. Like PSF, they also aim to improve language skills, as well as the integration of Dutch and international students. Last but not least they want more exchange of information in English about life, education, and work – if possible with more pages in Resource.
