Every two years, you have the opportunity to vote for the members of the Student Union, and the next voting period will be this spring, so we have summarised the key information.
Why is it important?
The Student Union is the most important interest representation body of students. In addition to constant discussions with the leadership of the University, they have altogether 3 votes in one of the highest decision-making body of the University, the Senate, have the right to consent on the regulations of the Study and Examination Regulations (SER) and the Regulation on Student Fees and Benefits (RSFB). They coordinate the operation of the Colleges for Advanced Studies and the student organisations (their accreditation is the responsibility of the Student Union). They organise programmes, too, of course, and provide students with information.
