The student council is chosen each year by the students of Near and Middle Eastern Studies. Our main duties consist of some political responsibilities within the university, but we also organize get-togethers and parties to have a good time.

Our Administrative responsibilities

The student council as the main representation of the students has two important functions: we deal with the faculty and the rectorate on behalf of the students, and we also support the students in their interests and concerns, especially at the start of their studies. 
The student council also informs regularly about the current events in our departments, be it in form of an information evening/event or in form of a newsletter per E-mail.

Leisure activities

The student council organizes every now and then film evenings (with films from all over the Muslim world), excursions and – of course – our popular parties at the end of the semester.

If you have any questions about what we do as a students council or about studying Near and Middle Eastern Studies in general, please feel free to send us an E-mail:
