What is the UCF Student Council?

The UCF Student Council is the association of all Liberal Arts and Sciences students at the University College Freiburg. It simply means that LAS students get together, shape their own programme and focus their brains and brawns on awesome projects. Its organization was set in the second Student Council Charter.

The Student Council Meetings serve to communicate news about academic and non-academic topics, discuss students’ opinions and ideas, organise and plan upcoming events and projects, welcome new ideas and prepare the General Assemblies!

According to the Charter, the office holders are always present; but the Students Council depends on your participation! This doesn’t mean you need to come every time. You are always welcome and especially when there is a topic of particular interest for you, we encourage you to attend the meeting!

Student Council regular meeting times are announced through the newsletter and are set at the beginning of the university semester.

Additionally, two General Assemblies take place during the semester, one at the beginning and one towards the end. While the Student Council Meetings will be the place to discuss issues that deserve discussion, the General Assembly will be mainly about information, votes, and elections. However, if there is a topic where more opinions are needed, it might be raised in the General Assembly again. Student Council board members and committees make announcements, budget decisions are made, and offices are elected.
