Tasks of the Student Representative Committee

We, the Student Representative Committee, are your first point of contact for questions and problems concerning your studies and are active in various areas of the university.

On the one hand, we are active in the student and academic self-administration of Leibniz University Hannover and represent special education at all three levels of the university structure (institute, faculty and university).

We are committed to the interests of the students, constantly improve teaching and study conditions, fight for jobs, develop examination regulations in commissions and are members of numerous committees.

On the other hand, in addition to important committee work, we take on numerous other tasks at the Institute of Special Education. In addition to the organization and implementation of the introductory week (O-week) for new students, during which we support the incoming students with advice and practical support for one week and introduce them to everyday life at the university, we organize numerous other events and activities that serve to promote social exchange and information. These include the legendary special education party “Dance Therapy” once a semester, the Christmas market, barbecue evenings, games evenings, presentations of Bachelor theses, first aid courses and much more.

In addition, we are part of the nationwide federal student representatives’ conference (BuFaTa) for special education courses and regularly take part in the semi-annual meetings that are held in a different city each semester.
