General Student Committee

 

The AStA is the body of the student body in which students continuously strive to improve the general conditions of study and promote exchange between the university and society. Their personal commitment and drive make a significant contribution to student life at the university.

Next to the student parliament (StuPa), the AStA is the most important organ of student self-administration at our university. It is divided into different departments, which are organized by area of responsibility. The speakers of the AStA are elected by the StuPa.

We meet regularly in meetings open to the public at the university, which are announced in good time by e-mail. All students are welcome to attend these meetings. Currently, due to the Corona pandemic, the meetings take place online via WebEx.

Board of Directors

Our executive board manages the affairs of the student body and represents it in internal and external university committees.

Units

Our units organize parties and info events, network with other AStAs or support the AStA with finances or public relations.

Office team

Our staff is available during office hours and via e-mail or phone and will try to support you with your questions and concerns.

Our Units

In our work, we dedicate ourselves to advocating for the interests of students and planning events (workshops, lectures, readings, film evenings, etc.) related to the above-mentioned areas.

In the International Affairs Department, we concentrate on ensuring that our university remains true to the name "European University": Specifically, we understand this to mean contributing to or organising projects with an international theme so that international activities are further promoted at our university. Other initiatives include offering projects and content for international students, e.g. to make it easier for them to integrate and make contact with local students and, if necessary, to provide assistance with any problems that may arise.

Current projects:

eMerge: One of our current tasks is the coordination of the "eMERGE" project (on the student side with the other student representatives of all partner universities), the aim of which is to network different European universities with each other, both in the area of research teaching and to stimulate a cultural exchange between students. For this purpose, we take part in the regular meetings of the eMERGE student forum (ESF). Further information on the universities participating in the project can be found under the following Link

Model United Nations (MUN): Model United Nations is a simulation of a UN conference in which all participants take on the role of a country delegation to debate an issue of international relevance and find a solution. Our plan is to set up a MUN club together with the Department of Political Education and the media team of the International Office, which will meet regularly throughout the semester to debate in MUN style.

Podcast: Produce a language podcast with international and local students of different levels in the appropriate language, talking about simple and entertaining everyday topics to improve listening comprehension and speaking languages.

About us & contact:

We are Alexandra Osintseva, Annick Poirot and Hugo Mercier.

If you have any questions, e.g. what it's like to be an international student at the University of Flensburg or about our current projects, please feel free to contact us. We are looking forward to helping you! asta.internationales@uni-flensburg.de

The cultural department strengthens communication between the cultural institutions within Flensburg and the university. We are also committed to the preservation and further development of cultural offerings.
