A challenging semester – AStA informs you

Of course, you have many questions this semester – even more than usual. The current situation is not easy for any of us, we are facing new challenges and circumstances. But especially at this moment it’s our particular task to make sure to be there for you to the full extent. As we already mentioned in our welcome message, we also changed to a completely digital system to maintain the services of AStA. This contains our weekly plenum, the work of our office, our units and our financial department. It’s a big change but we will be there for the same way we have been every other semester.
Especially our consulting service went through a lot of changes this semester. Luckily, we still can offer you a complete and diversified service – independent of the administration of TU Berlin. The counseling interviews will be held via telephone and e-mail, also our consultation-hours with lawyers will still take place!
To explain to you all changes in a bundled way, we prepared a small slideshow with voice-over for you. You will find also some more information about the AStA there, this is meant to be a low-treshold offer from students for students. You will find the audio presentation at the end of this text.
You can find our new office hours here: https://asta.tu-berlin.de/oeffnungszeiten
The different advisory collectives and units of AStA have also been (and still are) involved in the planning process of the new semester. The units will publish regulary here on this website to inform you about exams, deadlines, final thesis, study financing or BAföG for example. This information will be updated continuously, you can find it under the tab “News” (Aktuelles) or on the welcome page.
Here is an overview of all info texts concerning the digital summer semester 2020:
