Basically, all the students of a particular study programme also belong to their respective department/faculty student association (Fachschaft in German). For example, the mathematic department student association comprises all the students at the mathematics department.
What do the active department student associations do?
The active department student associations take responsibilities in the university through various ways. On the whole, the different department student associations and their respective councils represent the interest of the students and the general student council at their respective faculties/institutes.
Correspondingly, the following responsibilities are taken care by them:
- Organisational responsibility at the learning center in their respective faculty
- Consultation for questions pertaining to study programme
- Model examination papers
The list is long and also varies from one department association to another. Basically, any student , with his/her issues can approach the Fachschaft.This all cannot be achieved alone and therefore voluntary helping hands are always welcome in their respective department associations.
