The University offers with its various facilities many ways to get involved outside of your studies and to use the services.

We would like to present a selection here.

Intercultural, Political and Social Committment

At the University of Bamberg, there is no shortage of extracurricular clubs and associations in which you can get involved. They range from working groups that are closely associated with specific academic subjects to student religious associations and on to student chapters of trade and labour unions and political parties.

Additionally, the university’s Student Council provides ample opportunity to get involved in policy and representation at both the university and academic faculty levels. The council provides support for the student body and is responsible for representing students’ concerns within the university and faculties.

Tandem Programme

As a participant, you can help foreign students get settled in Bamberg and become better acquainted with the university. And conversely, you’ll have the chance to learn about the students’ home countries and cultures.
