The Flemish Union of Students (VVS) is the official representative of students in Flanders and Brussels!
VVS has been representing the interests of every student studying at a college or university of the Flemish Community since 1938.
Making policy – VVS fights with the government and higher education institutions for a quality but also accessible higher education for every (future) student without distinction. To this end, we send representatives to external advisory bodies, working groups and committees. Because VVS writes positions that are supported by the various student councils from the entire Flemish community, the student umbrella organisation is a much sought-after, and decree-based, discussion partner.
The team behind VVS
The VVS board consists of elected students. They dedicate a whole year to representing the organisation and governing its content. In doing so, they carry out the policies of the general assembly and defend student interests. Anyone can contact the board members at firstname.lastname@example.org or at their personal address.
The staff members are the permanent staff of VVS. They are responsible for organisational and day-to-day operations and ensure continuity. In addition, they support and guide the board through their policy-preparing work.
You can contact the staff members via email@example.com or at their personal address.
