SPECIAL REPRESENTATIVE BODIES FOR INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS

The General Assembly which is currently made up of some 1100 international students convenes at least once a year to elect a fellow student as the international student representative (Ausländervertreter). That person represents the special concerns and interests of international students in close collaboration with the AStA International Affairs Office and the University International Office (Akademisches Auslandsamt).

The International Committee is made up of one representative from each of the registered associations of international students, the Ausländervertreter or an AStA International Affairs Officer. It convenes once a month and decides on or coordinates joint events and actions by the international students.
