The candidate for POC-N (Permant Education Committee for the Dutch program)

Clara Charaf Al Din
Ik streef er als vertegenwoordiger vooral naar dat wij als studenten kunnen samenwerken om elk van onze ervaringen aan de universiteit te optimaliseren. Ik ben er dan ook op uit om te luisteren en te praten met wie dat wil, en zo de stem te zijn van en voor een hele massa aan stemmen.
Ik vind het een mooie opportuniteit dat wij als studenten ook de mogelijkheid hebben om onze stem te laten horen in deze overweldigende machine die wij de universiteit noemen, die opportuniteit wil ik samen met jullie ten volle benutten.


The candidates for POC-E (Permanent Education Committee for the English program)

Sander Tuns
Hello, my name is Sander. I’m from the Netherlands and are a Master student at HIW. I would like to represent the thoughts and needs of the international masterstudents in the POC (Permanent Education Committee) to contribute to the experiences of all current and future generations of students.

Valerie Hufkens
My name is Valerie and after finishing the (Dutch) bachelor and master’s programme at our institute I am now enrolled in the Research Master of Philosophy (abridged programme). I would like to be a member of the POC because both the quality our institute offers and the idea that the voice of our students should play a constitutive role in the shaping of this education are things that hit home closely for me. I was the vice-president of NFK during the academic year 2016 – 2017 during which I also participated as a student representative at STURA and LOKO meetings. I have been a member of NFK’s board of directors ever since.

Ildar tukhtakhunov
I would like to apply for a position in the international POC with this letter. The position immediately interested me because I have had a longstanding interest in education curriculum. In fact, my initial two years of my Bachelor in Boston University were in Educational Sciences, and I plan to go into the field of education after my studies. Therefore, the prospect of being able to give feedback, discuss issues, and generally contribute to student representation. I truly hope that you consider me for this position.
