What we do for you

The activities of the Student Association can be divided into 3 areas: Representation of interests, services and events.

Representation of interests

We have a say and help shape things! By sending a member to the meetings of the department management, we find out what is going on behind the scenes, can contribute the students’ opinion and submit our own proposals. In this way, we are present when curricula are redesigned or new professorships are to be filled. We are the point of contact when fundamental problems arise with the degree programme or individual courses. By carrying out lecture evaluations, we try to detect deficiencies in teaching as quickly as possible and then seek solutions together with the lecturers. In addition, we are represented in the Faculty of Phil. nat. so that we can also have a say at the next higher level.


  • We organise the sale of lab coats
  • Guided tours for new exchange and master students
  • Visiting and information days for high school students
  • Support in the search for tutoring


The Student Association organises various events for the students and PhDs of the department. These include the annual events such as the freshman apero, the Chlouse Punch, the Bierochemie, the Maibowle, the 1s Party, the Snow Sport Weekend and the Wander Weekend. We also organise events for career starters and offer networking opportunities with various companies and institutions.
