General Student Committee

The General Student Committee (Sprat) is the executive organ of the Student’s Council.

In this round, financial assistance and further support for student university groups are discussed. Together, we also make sure that student wishes are taken into account when the university makes decisions, for example when setting up new courses of study. Students can also come to meetings if the BAföG is cancelled and there are problems with courses or places in dormitories.

The basic rule for the Sprat is: if you are interested, you can simply come by and join in, even if you are not elected. We generally welcome new ideas.
