What is elected during the university elections?
Every summer semester, the members of the Student Council (StuRa) and the 4 student representatives in the Senate of the University of Tübingen are newly elected.
The StuRa represents all students at the university, stands up for the interests of students inside and outside the university and supports university groups, initiatives and events. The StuRa has 21 seats, 17 of which are directly elected and 4 of which are filled by the student senators.
The Senate is the highest decision-making body at the university. It also includes representatives of the professors, mid-level staff, employees and the rectorate. Among other things, the Senate decides on new examination regulations, appoints new professors and elects the Rectorate.
You can find the current distribution of seats in the StuRa here.
How are elections held?
You have 17 votes in the StuRa election and 4 votes in the Senate election. You can distribute your votes freely among the different lists and give a person up to 2 votes. The more votes a list receives in the respective election, the more seats it gets in the corresponding committee. The final order within a list is determined by the number of votes of the individual candidates.
