Fachschaft (Students)

Formally speaking, the “Fachschaft Computerlinguistik” is all of you: The term “Fachschaft eines Faches” (students of a subject) just means all the people who study that subject. This means you don’t have to do anything to become a part of the Fachschaft and you also can’t do anything against it: As soon and as long you’re studying Computational Linguistics here, you are part of the Fachschaft.

“Aktive Fachschaft” (active students)

Normally, however, the term is used differently (also by us on this website, for example): Most people who speak of the Fachschaft in everyday life do not mean all computational linguistics students, but only those who are particularly committed to their fellow students. One could call this subgroup the “Aktive Fachschaft” (active students) to differentiate it.

The “Aktive Fachschaft” is not a formally defined term, it or its members are not written down anywhere – they are simply the people who have decided to donate some of their time for all computational linguistics students.

How do I become a part of the Aktive Fachschaft?

There is no formal admission procedure, because the Aktive Fachschaft does not formally exist.

If you would like to get involved, or just want to have a look, just drop by one of the weekly general assemblies. There you’ll find out everything you need to know to get involved in the Fachschaft (and thus become part of the Aktive Fachschaft). And if something is not clear, just ask 🙂 .

We (the Aktive Fachschaft) look forward to seeing you!


A lot of active students can be reached at

If you would like to read these emails or perhaps even help answer them, just ask in the general assembly, where it will be dealt with quickly and unbureaucratically.
