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.

Facul­ty Council

The facul­ty council is the adminis­tra­ti­on commit­tee of our facul­ty. It appoints the StuKo and the exami­na­ti­on board.There the deans and senators report on their work in their commit­tees. There is also a disus­si­on about the actual proces­ses in the facul­ty and acade­mic affairs. In the facul­ty council are three students which were direct­ly elected into the commit­tee for one year.

Quali­ty Assuran­ce Commis­si­on

The QSK is a facul­ty-wide commit­tee subdi­vi­ded into the facul­ty council and deals prima­ri­ly with the quali­ty of teaching at our facul­ty. One of its main tasks is the estab­lish­ment of an evalua­ti­on proce­du­re. For us, the QSK is parti­cu­lar­ly interes­ting for one reason: it is equal­ly staffed with students and lecturers/employees. This enables the student repre­sen­ta­ti­ves to meet the profes­sors at eye level and has a large right of co-deter­mi­na­ti­on.

Exami­na­ti­on Board

The exami­na­ti­on board is one of the univer­si­ty policy commit­tees in which selec­ted members of the student council can parti­ci­pa­te. The main task of the PA is to respond to appli­ca­ti­ons from us students and to act in accordance with the exami­na­ti­on and study regula­ti­ons. The meetings usual­ly take place every four weeks. In these, the second repeat exami­na­ti­ons and comple­ted internships are usual­ly voted on, as well as appli­ca­ti­ons for credi­t­ing for acade­mic achie­ve­ments, for examp­le during a semes­ter abroad.

Study Commis­si­ons

StuKo Physik, StuKo Meteo, StuKo Lehramt

The study commis­si­ons each consist of 3 students and 3 teachers and are there­fo­re made up of equal numbers of students and teachers. This ensures that the interests of students and teachers are equal­ly taken into account. Topics such as the general struc­tu­re and course of studies as well as module contents etc. are dealt with, so the StuKos are very important from the student's point of view due to their influ­ence.

Student Council

The StuRa is your repre­sen­ta­ti­on at univer­si­ty level. As a rule, plena­ry sessi­ons are held every two weeks and deal with univer­si­ty policy topics and/or areas of student life. The StuRa is non-parti­san and indepen­dent. It repres­ents the interests of the students of the Univer­si­ty of Leipzig. It supports finan­cial­ly AG's and student initia­ti­ves and repres­ents a platform for the exchan­ge of opini­ons. In additi­on, there are also tangi­ble things such as a job exchan­ge, social counsel­ling and legal advice.

PhD Repre­sen­ta­ti­on

The PhD Repre­sen­ta­ti­on is a self-repre­sen­ta­ti­ve body of a member group of the Facul­ty of Physics and Earth Scien­ces of the Univer­si­ty of Leipzig. It serves to network, organi­se and advise all docto­ral students of the Facul­ty and the associa­ted insti­tu­tes. An elected member of the repre­sen­ta­ti­on takes part in the meetings of the Facul­ty Council in an adviso­ry capaci­ty. One member is also repre­sen­ted in the commit­tee for the revisi­on of the docto­ral regula­ti­ons.
