Clusters and Programme Boards

In the academic year 2020-2021, a new educational organization has started. The key aspect of this structural change was to divide all degree programmes into clusters of related programmes. In total, seven clusters of programmes were created, each with an associated Programme Board.


The programmes are divided into the following clusters

Programme Boards

Each of the clusters above have an associated Programme Board. Each Programme Board is responsible for the educational management of the programmes within their cluster. This includes developing a vision for the future, taking care of the continuity and consistency, and ensuring the quality of all education.

The Programme Boards consists of a Chair, which oversees the board and is a member of the Education Management Teams (EMT), a number of Education Directors, which represent the Research Institutes, a number of Programme Directors, which represent the individual programmes, and a student member.
