Welcome to the Fachschaft of the English Department!

The English Committee represents the English students and their views on all official university levels. We have representatives in the Department Council, in the Faculty Council and in the AGEF. The committee primarily functions as a link between the students and the teaching staff. In doing so, its members organize meetings for first semester students in order to successfully integrate them into the English department. In addition, all students of the English department are encouraged to attend the General Assembly of the English department which is held on a regular basis at the beginning of the semester.
