The Open Government Act applies to the governing bodies of the university and its organisational units. The Executive Board and School boards provide information about the EUR or the relevant faculty / school of their own accord, with respect to matters that specifically concern education and/or research (the so called active information obligation). Furthermore, members of the university community may submit requests for further information on various matters.
Students can lodge objections or appeals with various bodies in order to protect their legal position:
- the Executive Board;
- the Board of Appeals for Examinations (internal);
- the Higher Education Appeals Tribunal;
- the administrative law sector of a court of law;
- the Council of State (external).
For complaints on other matters, students can contact the student deans and School deans (internal) or the National Ombudsman (external). Further information can be found in the Institutional section of the Student Charter, chapter 'Legal Protection'.
