What is VeSte?

VeSte is a party in the Student Council which was founded in 1997. VeSte is an abbreviation of ‘Verenigde Studenten’ which means ‘United Students’. The Student Council has, as stated by law, powerful rights to influence university policies, for instance concerning facilities, regulations or budgets. These rights imply that we have influence on the decision making at WUR at different levels of the organisation.

What does VeSte stand for?

VeSte is committed to stimulate broad academic development by maintaining and improving the quality of education, student facilities and the possibility to do extracurricular activities. VeSte stimulates the WUR to facilitate students to develop themselves within and besides their studies. VeSte represents the active students and works in a pragmatic way. The tasks of a VeSte member are not only to stay in touch with the active students, but also to implement the active students’ opinion in dealing with the university’s policies on the highest level and stay up-to-date about national developments.

What do you learn during a VeSte board year?

A year in VeSte is a journey of skill development through trainings, organizing events and active involvement in the policy making of this professional entity. During a year in VeSte you will occasionally meet with the rector and the whole Executive Board, both formally and informally.. Also, a board year in VeSte is a unique way to develop your soft skills and learn to work in a professional setting. In addition to that, you will learn the ins and outs of a billion dollar organization. It’s not just all work, but you will also get to meet many students from different organizations, within and outside of Wageningen, and forge bonds with them and have fun while doing so!
