AStAThe General Students' Committee (Allgemeiner Studierendenausschuss – AStA) represents the students both within the University and externally. Furthermore, at the AStA shop you can buy inexpensive stationery and copy cards.
You can find out more about the work and current activities of AStA on its website.
Departmental student committeesOnce a year, the students of the various departments elect their departmental student committee, FSR for short. The FSR represents the students both within the department and externally. They organize trips, games evenings and parties, as well as providing support if there are difficulties with professors or members of staff.
At an academic level, too, the FSR represents the students through its seats on the faculty council. Here decisions are made about the distribution of funds, new professorships and study and examination regulations.
