Calendar of the Corporation

There are essentially three phases during the semester when the Student Council makes and publishes its decisions.

These phases are preceded by the proposal period when the associations submit their proposals, and are followed by the various steps of the Student Referendum process. 

Other important dates each semester are the first and last days of the period during which Student Initiatives can be launched.
