Department for Education Policy

The Department for Education Policy (BiPol) is mainly offering legal counseling for students. In cooperation with the study field representations, we try to help students when they have issues with admission, courses, exams etc. 

Furthermore, our task is to promote the discussion on topics of higher education, education and science, as well as to provide a discussion forum. BiPol has to inform the students about democratic and educational policy events and to promote the critical debate. The Department for Educational Policy offers study counseling for the students. BiPol is responsible for these tasks in cooperation with the study representatives and other units, in particular the Public Relations Unit.
