Student Forums to Solicit Suggestions to Improve Curriculums

All students of International Burch University, especially upperclassman and BA graduates, are invited to attend and actively participate in the first ever Student Forums, which will be held throughout next week.

The topic of these Students Forums is reforming the department curriculums by proposing the addition of some courses, the elimination of other courses and changes to existing ones.

“The Student Parliament’s Committee for Education, encouraged by the warm reception of previous initiatives and ideas from the University management, decided to organize Student Forums in order to gather ideas for possible amendments to the department curriculums with the goal of improving them for both ourselves and future generations of students,” Nejla Babić, the president of the Committee for Education, stated.

Instead of having one large gathering for all University students, seven separate Forums will be organized. Each department, with the exceptions of the Department of Oriental Philology and the Departments of Banking and Finance, International Business and Management, will have its own Forum. The former will not because it is in the process of being closed, while the latter will be conglomerated into one department with different tracks.

The schedule for the Student Forums is below:

  • Department of Architecture: Thursday, from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m.
  • Department of Banking and Finance/International  Business/Management: Wednesday, from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m.
  • Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering: Tuesday, from 11 a.m. to 12 a.m.
  • Department of English Language and Literature: Wednesday, from 12 a.m. to 1 p.m.
  • Department of Genetics and Bioengineering: Tuesday, 09 a.m. to 10 a.m.
  • Department of International Relations and European Studies: Thursday, from 12 a.m. to 1 p.m.
  • Department of Internet Technologies: Tuesday, from 12 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Suggestions solicited at the Student Forums will be taken into consideration by the Committee for Education of the Student Parliament, which will review all suggestions and pass them along to the student representatives in the faculty councils in order to prepare and propose them at the next sessions of the faculty councils.
