-student repres­ent­at­ives-

Who we are, what we do - and why you should participate.

The Student Repres­ent­at­ives of Physics and Meteor­o­logy are the elected repres­ent­at­ives of the students of our faculty. What does that mean? We are part of the commit­tees that officially organ­ize the studies. We organ­ise events to bring the students togeth­er. We support third-party projects finan­cially. We help students with problems during their studies. And we would be happy if you would like to become part of this excit­ing work.


The Saxon Law on Univer­sity “Freedom“ stipu­lates that students may parti­cip­ate democrat­ic­ally in the organ­isa­tion­al processes of their univer­sity. In concrete terms, this means that members of FaRaPhy parti­cip­ate and vote in univer­sity and faculty committees.


In order to contrib­ute to a varied student life at the faculty and the univer­sity, we also organ­ize various events every year.


Wheth­er it’s student advice or problems with profess­ors or exams, you can come to us with any question. We are all students like you and know our faculty very well.

Office hours

On Mondays at 4 to 5 pm, we offer an online office hour. Come by with your questions and problems and benefit from our experience.


In our weekly meeting (Monday at 5 pm) we discuss the latest devel­op­ments at the faculty. We plan events, take care of students’ problems, write e-mails to lectur­ers and discuss how to improve the study programmes.

Our meetings and office hours are held via Discord (discord.gg/BfjfHJe). Discord can be used without/with regis­tra­tion via browser or app.

You want to participate?

All students have the oppor­tun­ity to discuss in meetings, help with events and parti­cip­ate in commit­tees. So if you are new to the faculty or you have ideas for a better study, you should come and visit us.

Semester abroad

A study abroad is usually a great person­al enrich­ment, because you get to know people from many other nations and cultures, improve your language skills and exper­i­ence a differ­ent educa­tion­al system. However, in order to ensure that study­ing abroad is a success and does not lead to unneces­sary delays in your studies, there are a number of things that need to be taken into account in advance.
