About us

The student union for British and American studies is the department-wide representative body for students of British and American studies. As part of the university‘s student self-administration we engage actively in university policy. In practice this means:

  1. We are a member of several committees like the department council (Institutsrat) and the faculty council (Fakultätsrat) in which we campaign for your rights and necessities. As such we are the go-between with lecturers on the one hand and administration on the other hand.

  2. Moreover, we are regularly organising events like monthly anglophile meetings, brunches, and a summer party to give you the chance of getting to know both your fellow students and lecturers. And in case you have any ideas or plans of setting up your own project, we will be glad to support you.

  3. Then again there is the student councelling which we provide during our office hours. Also, feel invited to dwelve among the books in our book exchange shelf or to have a look at old exams.

  4. We generally try to keep you up to date on all matters concerning Leipzig university, Britain and America. Stay informed on our homepage, Facebook, and Instagram.

In general, our student council consists of ten members who are elected in the annual university elections. Additionally, a range of volunteers and non-elected members support our union. They do not necessarily contribute permanently and might just want to have a look into our work at first. So if you are into extracurricular commitment and want to get involved, have a look right here.
