What is a student group?

The university’s student groups represent the interests of individual degree programmes or several related/coupled degree programmes. Their tasks include the organisation and implementation of orientation/introduction phases for students in their 1st semester as well as the planning and implementation of other events (parties, meetings, weekend excursions, etc.). Many student groups also offer other subject-specific services (provision of information materials, job fairs, etc.) for students.

Within the organisational structure of the university, a student group represents the associated students in various committees (for example, in study commissions, the large faculty council or appointment committees). In addition, they shape social life at the university and offer the opportunity to actively participate in shaping studies and student life. Every student in a degree programme is automatically part of the assigned student group and can volunteer there and run for corresponding offices within the student group (student group spokesperson, financial officer, etc.).
