Organisation of the StuRa

For optimal representation of interests, we have taken up certain topics. These are called units. Most of the time, these are also the topics that are of particular interest to us.

We are committed to improving all aspects of teaching. To this end, we are in close contact with the professors and academic staff of our department and represent the interests of the students in the regular lecturers' conferences. We are available for requests, problems, praise and suggestions for improvement.

Karla, Friederike, Lisa, Laura, Leon

At the University of Applied Sciences, we wish for a professional and constructive approach from all those involved. However, in the power imbalance between teachers and students, but also between equals, tensions are sometimes possible. In such cases, we offer ourselves as a point of contact, objective observers and impartial mediators.

Catharina, Friederike

We can help you with all your questions about studying and doing an internship abroad. We are also there for students from abroad. We also support projects and ideas on the topic of international and supra-regional networking or in planning an event. Is there a need for workshops on a specific topic? We are here for you.

We'll help you with all questions regarding studies or an internship abroad. Are you a student from abroad and have problems getting started? We can help you! If you have an idea for a project concerning international or interregional affairs or do you wanna plan an event? Do you have an idea or wishes for a workshop? You are very welcome!

Catharina, Friederike


Mails and social media contributions first land with us. According to our tasks and competences, we forward the concerns to the other members. We also try to keep the students up to date on developments in the department.

Karla, Lara, Lisa

We take care of the accounting and administration of the student body's financial resources in our department. If you have any questions about the financial regulations, the funding guidelines or assistance with applications, we are here to help!
