School Council

The School Council is the school’s participation body. The School Council discusses the general running affairs of the school with the dean. In addition, the dean informs the council about any policies that he carries out and policy proposals that concern teaching & research, and policy proposals in the field of finances and organisation.

Alongside its general advisory role, the School Council has a specific approval competency with respect to determining and modifying the School Regulations and part of the Teaching and Examinations Regulations

In this capacity the PGFR has a special advisory and approval competency. The specific competencies are defined in the ESE School Regulations. As a service council, the PGFR has regular consultation meetings with the dean.

Student Council (SGFR)

The Student Council of the School Council (SGFR) is a representative advisory body. In this capacity the SGFR, just like the PGFR, has advisory and approval competencies.
