Activism recognition

As a board member you have meant a great deal to the student community. It is not only important that you receive a financial compensation for this, but also that you get recognition for your work. This is why it is possible to apply for activism recognition which will be awarded in the form of an official certificate. In this way, you can demonstrate to future employers that you have spent at least 40 weeks working for a student organisation.

Your certificate is issued by the board of the University of Twente: the Executive Board. The Rector Magnificus, Thom Palstra, is involved with the activism recognition and signs all the recognitions personally.


Still doubtful about whether you are eligible for this certificate? Contact us in order to be sure.
