Student Services & Counselling

The TUBAF Student Council is a point of contact for students during their studies. As a democratically elected student representative body, the StuRa represents the interests and needs of students in committees. The Student Council offers information and counselling on questions about the course of studies, examinations, student finance or social matters. And if there is a need to talk, students can also contact the Students' Council.

The student councils represent the interests of the students in a faculty. The student council members are actively involved in student council work and advocate for the interests of their fellow students.
