Who are we?

We are 11 elected students who are active for a term of 2 semesters as representatives of all students in the department and are a distinctive voice for the study body in the politics of the university. We represent the opinions of the student body, which means that we rely on your involvement and always appreciate suggestions and ideas.

What do we do?

Our main responsibility is to represent the interests of the students in our student body in the departmental council and other university committees. If you have any difficulties with lecturers, officials or other matters, we will be happy to be of assistance to you and do everything within our power to support you.

Apart from this, we make a contribution to the cultural life of the university by organising a summer festival and Christmas celebration every year. We are also pleased to offer our support with organisations and events that your propose yourself.

Do you want to become a member of the student council?
