Since 2017 the participation councils and the study programme committees are the legally settled formal participation bodies.

The rules regarding the participation councils are established in the Participation Regulations. The University of the Arts The Hague (HdK) has two faculty councils of representatives, one for the Royal Academy of Art (DMR-KABK / Academy Council) and one for the Royal Conservatoire (DMR-KC / Conservatoire Council). The councils comprise representatives of staff and students. The CMR (University Council) is chosen from the two councils and supplemented by one representative each from the interfaculty ArtScience and the interfaculty School for Young Talent.

The regulations serve as a framework for communications between the Executive Board and the CMR and between the faculty directors and the faculty councils.

The committee’s remit is to advise on the promotion and safeguarding of the quality of the programme. The Act states that the study programme committee has the following tasks:

  • to issue advice on the Education and Examination Regulations and to consent to the parts of the Education and Examination Regulations regarding which the faculty council has no right to consent, before the faculty director finalizes the regulations;
  • to make an annual assessment of the application of the Education and Examination Regulations;
  • to provide solicited and unsolicited advice about all other matters pertaining to the education.
