Our committees and councils have representatives from administration, staff, and students.
Admissions committees are put together for admission to programs and freestanding courses. In the admissions committees, there are also student representatives from the Royal Institute of Art. The admissions committee for the programs also includes an external member.

The Disciplinary Committee handles cases of disciplinary action taken against students. The Vice-Chancellor is chairperson of the committee. The committee also consists of a legally qualified member—who ought to be (or have been) a regular judge—plus a representative teacher from the institution, whom the Vice-Chancellor appoints. The students at the institution have the right to be represented on the committee by two members.
