Student representations

Students are directly affected by most decisions at universities: whether in teaching, in the organization of the university, in examination issues, or beyond that through educational policy decisions at the state or federal level. Get actively involved! New members in the student committees are always welcome.

Parent-child group

At the University of Applied Sciences Potsdam, there is a new offer to strengthen families with the parent-child group. The group builds on the fact that parents who otherwise care for their children at home accompany them to the group, thus creating a social support system.

The parent-child group is held Mondays through Fridays from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. with pre-registration at the University of Applied Sciences Potsdam and is designed for parents with children between the ages of zero and six.
