For student representatives.
Every class choose one or two student representatives who represent their class in a student council. There’s one students council at each institute. The student council at institute level reports to a faculty committee. This committee consists of the leader for each council, the faculties members in the Student Parliament and to elected leaders of the Committee. They also work together with the leaders of their faculties, who cooperate with the Student Parliament.
