The board

The board is in charge of the graduate school. It convenes as often as necessary, but at least once per semester. For members from the professoral group, the period in office is two years, for members of the group of doctoral students, the period in office is one year. Re-election is permitted.

The board consists of six members with voting rights:

  • two members each appointed by the faculty council of the Faculty of Agricultural Sciences and the Faculty of Forest Sciences and Forest Ecology; they must be authorised examiners,
  • one member each elected from the group of doctoral candidates at the Faculty of Agricultural Sciences and the Faculty of Forest Sciences and Forest Ecology.

A representative must be elected for each member.
