Student Representative and Senior Student Councils
The representative councils are a constitutional part of the student body and are thus legally rooted as part of the University. Students studying history form the Fachschaft 7/1 and 7/2 together with other students from the Faculty of Arts and Humanities. Within this group, there are few, but far too few, active representatives, who work in the interest of students.
Additional information is available on the student representative council webpages:
Fachschaft 7/1: http://www.fsphil.rwth-aachen.de.
Fachschaft 7/2: http://www.fslehramt.rwth-aachen.de/
Furthermore, there is also the History Senior Student Council, which is the student representation for all history students and their concerns.
You can find additional information on the Senior Student Council website.
