The ÖH elections take place from 27th to 29th May.
What will be elected?
On our UAS the following ÖH levels will be elected:
- federal level
- college level
- field of study representative level
What is the difference?
On the federal level the ÖH co-designs the academic politics. There the student’s concerns are represented to the ministries, the university and college conferences, the principal conference of the pedagogic colleges and the Austrian private university conference.
The college level is primarily concerned with students of a specific educational institution – students of the UAS Technikum Wien in our case. Depending on the result of the election representatives of each roster are sent to the highest committees of the college where students have the right to participate.
In the field of study representative election specific persons are elected instead of rosters. They are the first place to go to for year representatives if they have any questions or problems and are the link between them and the college level representatives.
