What do we do?

As the Higher Education Policy Unit we take care of everything that has to do with university policy. That means, what concerns your studies, the university or the educational policy in the state and federal government. We support Fachschaftsräte and others in their committee work and talk to the university if there are problems or potential for improvement. We write many press releases to inform about the work of the student council and to put pressure on the university in some places.

We also network the student council beyond the university. Many problems cannot be solved at the university, but have to be tackled in student unions, the state parliament, the Bundestag, etc. Therefore we represent the student council in the Conference of Saxon Student Bodies and are in contact with political parties, trade unions and other organizations.

Especially in the times of the pandemic, the conditions in university politics and studies are very adverse. We try to keep you up to date and to get the best out of the changing study conditions!

For those interested in university politics, we offer committee workshops. In these workshops you can get to know the committees of the university in a playful way.

You have a problem?

You can come to us with all your problems concerning your studies. And if we don’t know what to do, we are guaranteed to know someone who might be able to help you. If you have any questions, please let us know your course of study and your semester, so that we can process your request quickly.
