Department of Student Initiatives

The Department of Student Initiatives is the intersection connecting the Student Initiatives (FSI) and the AStA. We offer consultation hours for all the Students Initiatives and all those who are thinking about founding or reviving one. You can always come to us with questions, wishes and ideas. We also help you with applications concerning the AStA.

If we don't know an answer, we usually know where to send you, so that you can continue to work satisfied.


Finance and printing applications

We present financial and print applications from Student Initiatives at the financial plenary. The process is described here.


We can certify active Student Initiative work. You can find a How-to here.

Consultation hours

The Department of Student Initiatives offers a personal consultation hour. If you have any questions about FSI work, or if you have any wishes or ideas for the AStA, just write to us. We will be happy to arrange an appointment. Please write us an email to: fsref (at)


We student representatives are primarily contact persons for those students who are involved in higher education policy in a self-organised way at the different institutes. As an intersection to the AStA, we not only support individual Student Initiatives in their projects, but also promote cooperation and exchange beyond the boundaries of the institutes. Our aim is to help you with your own concerns and projects, rather than to impose any topics on you. This is why we support the concept of the Student Initiatives. We also work on the structure of the FaKo (Student Initiatives Coordination) to facilitate communication between students from different Student Initiatives and different areas of university policy. This structure is intended to provide an unbureaucratic framework for equal and self-determined work, its concrete design is up to you.

We are also happy to help you if you want to make a financial application, use the infrastructure of the AStA or need any other support with the means at our disposal. You can also contact us personally or by e-mail if you have any questions - no matter whether you want to set up an FSI at your institute, have questions about the orientation days in the beginning of the semester or other events, are looking for information on a specific university policy topic or are looking for fellow campaigners. If you have any questions, suggestions or criticism, just get in touch. We would be happy to make an appointment for a joint consultation.

If you are interested in our work you can also contact us! We are always happy to hear from people who are interested in supporting Student Initiatives throughout the university.
