As every year, the university elections are coming up soon after the start of the semester, during which the student convent and the student faculty councils and student representatives of the faculties will be elected.
Nominations can be submitted until May 9th, so if you want to stand for election you have to hurry up and get in contact with an existing list or found your own list.
If you do not have time to vote at all during the election, you can apply for a postal vote until 06.07. Otherwise, the election will take place electronically from 27.06. to 04.07.2022 from or until 9 a.m., so you can cast your vote digitally during this time.
In addition, there will be polling stations on the university campus where you can cast your vote (also electronically), the results of the election will then be announced directly on 04.07.
How exactly the election works is explained to you by Büsra in our video this week.
So that you are better informed who you want to vote for, there will also be a university election compass and other actions/events, of course we will keep you informed and inform you as soon as concrete dates are fixed.
But the most important thing is that you vote at all, because only with a high voter turnout are the people really represented in the committees that the masses want to have there!
Since the beginning of last week, students in Erlangen and Nuremberg, initiated by AK Semesterticket, have been collecting signatures for the introduction of a 365€ ticket for students as well.
The goal is to make the semester ticket cheaper for all students and to adapt it to the rates that apply to school students and trainees.
The request still needs political pressure, which is to be generated with the help of a citizens’ petition demanded by these signatures. For this in Erlangen about 900 signatures and for Nuremberg about 4000 signatures are needed. More information can be found here.
Provided that you did not sign yet you should catch up that as fast as possible.
Signatures will be collected until at least 06.05. from 10:00 to 14:00 in Erlangen on the Red Square of the Technical Faculty and in front of the Langemarkmensa in the city center, as well as at several locations in Nuremberg, including the WiSo, Mensa Insel Schütt, on Regensburger Straße and the Mensataria Ohm. If you can help collecting signatures, just contact us in the form.
At the beginning of the current semester we would like to introduce ourselves and our association in person. We are looking forward to meet you digital (4.5, 7 p.m.) and/ or at our get-together at Kanapee (11.5, 6 p.m.).
In our first seminar about “german taxes” (19.5, 6-7.30 p.m., H9/Erwin-Rommel-Straße 60) in cooperation with the A.S.I. business consulting you will learn general topics such as types of taxes, income tax returns or tax-related costs during your studies. Due to limited places, register quickly!
You can find more interesting events on our homepage or on Instagram!
Last year, people were able to suggest locations for 1,000 bicycle racks in Erlangen’s city centre.
Now comes part 2: We can all suggest locations for bicycle racks in the rest of the Erlangen city area. Since many students in Erlangen travel by bicycle and also at different locations, we have a particularly high level of expertise. You are cordially invited to participate![;]
