How to run for the position of Student Representative (StV)

As a mandatary of the Student Representation in your program, your role is the support of students in your program as well as development of the curriculum.

The different programs at BOKU are assigned to a specific Student Representation. You can find the allocation here in the charter of the ÖH BOKU.

The vote for Student Representative is a personal vote, meaning you vote directly for the person you would like to have as a representative, not for the contingent (party). This means you don’t need any proof of support.

The amount of people in the Student Representation depends on the amount of students in the assigned programs. Currently they are made up of 3 (WOW) and 5 (all others).

To become a candidate you have to fill out this form, and bring it to the Studienabteilung along with your Studienblatt (which you can download from BOKUOnline). Until the 2. May 2019, these must be handed in to the Chair of the Electoral Commission.

After your candidacy submission, you have the opportunity to present yourself in the Election Edition of the ÖH Magazine. Please contact presse@oehboku.at!

How to run as a Student Union Representative (UV)

The vote for student union representatives is a contingent vote, you can chose between the parties running, not the individual people.
