The FN's Board of Directors consists of students who are all members of the FN.

In addition to running for the Board of Directors, you can also run for the Teaching Committee, Institute Council and Board of Studies. Here you have the opportunity to shape the framework for the courses and sit on committees, councils and boards with associate professors and other employees at the University of Copenhagen.
