Your student representation

We represent you on the various university committees: we are your voice for achieving changes and improvements to the University of Applied Sciences. We stand as the intermediary between students and the University of Applied Sciences.

We need your support:

  • in that you definitely go and vote,
  • and we would love it if you got involved yourself!
You can get elected to the Senate, the Department Council and/or as a student councillor. There are also some academic commissions. Here, with your vote, you can improve your own student experience – and that of your fellow students – taking part and having a say in how the University of Applied Sciences is run.
The elections take place every year in the summer semester – use your chance to have an influence on university policy!

If you have any problems, we are happy for you to get in touch with us about any questions concerning your studies – just give us a call.
​We look forward to seeing you!



In the Senate the students, the deans and the president make decisions together on general matters regarding studying and teaching.
The Senate has five student senators.

Department Council

Each of the six faculties at the Ulm University of Applied Sciences (E, G, I, M, P, T) has its own Department Council. There the professors and elected students decide on matters concerning the department. Here, each Department Council has six student members, of which one is nominated as the department speaker, and one as their deputy.

Student projects

There are always actively involved students who take a broader view and start up projects on their own initiative (from small ones to quite large ones).
Currently there are several projects running which you can take a look at here.
If your project is not yet here: get in touch with us, we are always happy to hear about new projects and see how we might be able to support you.
