Student Councils

Student Associations

The student associations for medicine and mint science are formed of students who offer guidance on the programmes and represent the interests of all university students in dealings with students, professors and university staff.

For example, a student association:

  • Provides in-depth guidance to current and prospective students
  • Offers support for interaction with a lecturer, for instance, on a performance review meeting
  • Issues copies of past tests and examination reports
  • Organises the first semester orientation, Christmas celebration and parties

The members are elected annually from candidate students. The association is based in Building 21, left entrance.

AStA and StuPa

The AStA is the executive body, while StuPa serves as the legislative arm of the student council. Students elect members of StuPa, which then elects the AStA members.

AStA represents the interests of students in the university and public sphere, e.g. when dealing with the press and student administration. AStA has its office in Building 24a and it:

  • Provides advice and representation for issues of a general nature
  • Runs the university shop (Uni-Shop)
  • Provides international student IDs
  • Organises functions and parties
