Students at the University of Tübingen have various opportunities to become involved in University policymaking.
The Student Union (Verfasste Studierendenschaft)
Student representation in the faculties: Faculty council and Faculty representation
At least five elected students sit on the Faculty council (§ 16 Grundordnung University of Tübingen).
All students at the faculty are members of the Faculty student council. Each Faculty student council elects representatives (§ 19 Organisationssatzung der Verfassten Studierendenschaft) who decide on matters regulated at the faculties.
The Faculty representatives and student council represent the interests of the students to the Faculty and the University. The Faculty student council provides additional services to those provided by events organized by the Faculty. This includes introductory events for new students, an academic advisory service, the organisation of celebrations and other events.
