The Amsterdam Honours’ student council

Amsterdam Honours’ Student Council

The Amsterdam Honours’ Student Council (AHSC), formerly known as the HSC, was established in September 2013 by several Honours students of the University of Amsterdam (UvA) and VU Amsterdam (VU). The AHSC is the student representative body for Honours students from VU and UvA who participate in the Honours Programme.

Their main responsibility is evaluating and preserving the quality of the Honours Programme through its annual survey and by hosting multiple focus groups throughout the year. Additionally, they aim to create a communication network between the different Honours Programmes of VU, the UvA and AUC. They are trying to reach this goal through regular meetings with VU-UvA Honours Committee. In these meetings, they also try to express the opinions of Honours students, which in turn helps contribute to the improvement of the Programme in general.

AHSC Members

The current Amsterdam Honours Student Council consists of the following members:

  • Tomáš Kreuzinger (President)
  •  Francesca Rongoni (Vice President & Secretary)
  • Sara ben Hmido (VU Officer)
  • Sofía Tarancón (UvA Officer)Lyan ter Heide (PR Officer)
