AStA is the body representing all students at Leibniz Universität Hannover. According to §20 NHG it is the duty of the student body to represent the students at the university and in society in matters concerning university politics, social and cultural affairs. It is responsible for promoting the political education of students and the implementation of the university’s objectives. In this sense it represents its members politically. The student councils of the individual faculties (Fachschaften) form the basis of this organisation.
AStA consists of several officers, so that the different topic areas can be dealt with optimally and intensively. A major part of the work does not, however, consist of work specific to the different topic areas but of general issues such as maintaining contact to the student faculty councils and the structures outside the remit of the organised student body of this university.
