As already mentioned in the introduction, the students representatives are elected. But how?
Each Wintersemester the students of the University of Münster (including Mundus students) vote the Students Parliament as well as the „Fachschaftsvertretung“.
For us, it is very important that as many students as possible give their vote, since this is what legitizes us to represent the student body.
If you have difficulties to understand the voting documents (unfortunatley they are only distributed in German), you can ask the electoral staff, other students, or us. We will also try and prepare an unofficial translation for you.
The Students Pariliament is a part of the students self organization. It has political parties in it. They are discussing about weired things, but also very useful ones like providing the traintickets for North-Rhine-Wetfalia for all students.
Fachschaftsvertretung and Fachschaftsrat
You can also vote for a candidate for the Fachschaftsvertretung (FSV). The FSV which will then appoint the Fachschaftsrat (known to you as the students representatives). We are the first contact point for all questions and problems during your study. You can contact us via mail (firstname.lastname@example.org), or just drop in our office when we have office hours or the door is open.
