Students' representative list
Red Shift is the students' representative list of the University of Milano-Bicocca's Physics Department.
It was born from the collaboration of the Bachelor and Master degree students of Physics and Astrophysics.
The list's main aim is a continuos improvement of education and that is achieved by acting as an intermediary between students and professors. At the same time it organizes events and activities to enrich students' university life.

The representatives of students are elected in the following councils of the Department:
- Consiglio Coordinamento Didattico (CCD): it includes 13 students and deals with teaching issues such as courses organization and teaching supports.

- Commissione Paritetica Docenti-Studenti (CPDS): it includes 3 students and monitors the quality of education. Its aim is to improve the courses according to students' opinion.
The list also organizes several activities:
