The university law NRW determines that students can administer themselves and take decisions in diverse issues of the university. For this the committees of student self-administrations and the student members of the university committees are elected every year in December.
Why are the elections so important?
Within the framework of the student elections the student representatives of the student council Neuroscience are elected as well, which gives the student council an official quorum. That is in plain English: Without the officially elected student representatives the student council can neither put official matters into practice nor get fundings. Thus, the representation of interests of the students of Neuroscience would not exist anymore.
All the committees that can be elected arrange the organisation of the university, the faculties and the study courses, which has an impact on your life at the university. A more detailled description of the tasks and the areas of activity is listed below.
