The Student Council is a representative body of the Faculty's students.
Members of the Student Council and its president are elected each year by students at the Student Assembly by open ballot and with the majority vote of the students present. Each study programme and each year of study has at least one representative in the Student Council. Students elect student representatives to the Senate and the Academic Assembly at the same time and in the same manner.

This number does not include the members of this body, i.e., student representatives. At the session the students can state their opinion again and substantiate it.

The term of office for student representatives in the Faculty's bodies is one (1) year from the date on which they were elected. After their term of office expires, student representatives can be re-elected to the same Faculty body. If, for whatever reason, new student representatives are not elected to the Faculty's bodies before the term of office expires, the current student representatives in the Faculty's bodies continue their work until new student representatives are elected.
