At AAU, we work continuously to improve the study environment. Both students and employees play an important part in maintaining the best possible environment for our study activities and social life. Having an open and active dialogue is therefore crucial.
On this page, you will find information on how to report issues regarding the study environment, the improvement process, as well as how the department has followed up on already reported issues.
How to report study environment issues
As a student, you can report issues regarding study environment the following ways:
- Through the semester evaluations
- Directly to your study board student representative - Overview of the Architecture and Design Study Board members and the Media Technology Study Board members
- At semester group meetings
- Directly to Campus Service as describes below in the section on physical study environment
The annual cycle for improving the study environment
Once a year, the Department of Architecture, Design and Media Technology collects study environment issues reported by students in the semester evaluations (spring). The issues reported through other channels are assessed continuously. We divide the issues into the two categories listed below. You will be asked to assess these categories in the semester evaluations:
- The physical study environment
- The psychological study environment
You will also be asked if you have experienced or been a victim of offensive or abusive behavior and/or discrimination during your studies.
We take cases of this nature very seriously and you are encouraged to contact the Head of Studies and/or AAU Student Guidance if you have experienced or been a victim of offensive and abusive behavior – check out:
The Study Board deals with the topics that fall under them and plan actions for the coming semesters as well as integrate solutions in the continuous improvement of the education. The Head of Department deals with the topics that fall under the Department. Bigger issues might be escalated to the Vice Dean (in December).
