Governance protests pay off

Students in Denmark have secured a say over how the country’s universities are governed, according to the European Students’ Union.

The Danish government has decided to reject a suggestion, from a committee it appointed, that university study boards should no longer have a say over curricula and other academic matters, the ESU reported on 1 October. These boards are composed half of students and half of teachers.
