Board year at Dimensie FAQ
Can I be a part-time board member?
Yes! You can spend time on your study while being a board member. It is important to inform your co-board
members about this and make clear schedules. You will not be the first
board member who combined her/his board year with a bachelor
thesis or minor period. So, studying and being a board member
at the same time is definitely possible.
How many hours per week will cost it as board?
As a board member, you are free to decide for yourself (as long as your colleagues agree) how many hours you spend in your
board tasks. For every function, there are a few tasks which have to be
done, but outside these tasks, you have plenty of time to set things up.
The opening hours of the board room are from 09:30 till 16:00, but there
are of course also the activities. In general, you spend between 28 and
40 hours per week in the board year as fulltime board member.
What about the costs?
The nice thing of being a board member of a Study Association is that your tuition costs will be covered by a board scholarship.
Because the UT encourages being active, you will receive financial support for this!

€5,- or less are free for you as board member. The expenses you have are
stemming mostly from activities and trips and sometimes drinks, dinners,
etc. with other boards.
What do I learn?
Within a study program, you learn many skills needed for a professional career within the profession you’re studying for. But as a board
member of any (Study) Association, you learn relevant skills which you can
use for anything in life and your professional career. Taking responsibility,
working in a team, plan your tasks and Dimensie’s activities and networking
are a few examples of skills you’ll learn. Of course, as treasurer, you learn
different things than as commissioner internal affairs, but the above mentioned skills are
applicable to all functions.
How can I apply?
If you want to apply, you can contact us. You have to write a motivational letter. You are free to choose the length, the things you write
about and the format. After this letter, there will be an intake with
a board member, one or more former board members and a study advisor
