It is attended by Adjunct Professors, Assistant Professors, Associate Professors and Professors who fulfil at least 50% of their required teaching within the Faculty, and one student representative.
The Curriculum Committee
Within the Faculty of Education there is a Curriculum Committee which submits curriculum proposals to the Faculty Meeting. The Committee is composed of three fully tenured teachers who are elected at the Faculty Meeting for a two-year period. The Committee assigns roles to its members at the first meeting of each academic year. Heads of Departments work with the Committee, mandated by the Head of Faculty.
The Credit-transfer Committee of the Faculty of Education deals with requests from students regarding the transfer of credits from their earlier studies, and with requests regarding visiting and exchange studies. The Committee is composed of at least three representatives of Faculty members, who are elected at the Faculty Meeting for a two-year period, and one student representative. The Committee assigns roles to its members and convenes according to need. Matters for the Council should be submitted in accordance with its rules. For further information, see the Faculty website; Faculty Regulations.
