Cooperations with the Student Council

Geophysics Student Council (Fachschaft Geophysik)

The Geophysics Student Council takes care of the students in geophysics programs at the department.

Science Student Council Conference (Naturwissenschaftliche Fachschaftenkonferenz, NaWi-FK)

Together with the other Student Councils for scientific subjects, we form a list for the elections of the Senate (information about the Senate) in the framework of the NaWi-FK every year. In our opinion, we as student councils can represent you students best in the Senate since we’re in direct contact to you and our work is already naturally directed towards your interests.

Gathering of all Physics Student Councils (Zusammenkunft aller Physik-Fachschaften, ZaPF)

The ZaPF is the gathering of all physics student councils in the German-speaking area (including Austria and Switzerland). At the ZaPF meetings which take place every semester, the student councils exchange information about many topics and coordinate the joint work.

Young German Physical Society (Junge Deutsche Physikalische Gesellschaft, jDPG)

The Young German Physical Society (jDPG) and the regional group Münster have different offers for physics students, such as excursions, vocational preparation seminars, talks and much more.

Campus group φsiker

The campus group φsiker supports the Student Council with the organization of various events.

The following texts were (mostly) written by the linked organizations/companies. We think the offers are helpful, interesting or exciting, but we’re not responsible for the contents.

Helpline Nightline

Nightline Münster is a hotline for listening and information by students for students. They describe themselves as follows (translated):

As a listening hotline, we offer you the opportunity to talk about things you’re dealing with in the late hours of the evening. It doesn’t matter if you’re a freshman or a PhD candidate, 18 or 38, just want to get something off your chest or everything is collapsing above your head. It doesn’t matter if it’s about university stress, relationship problems, fear of exams, heartsickness or problems with your study plans. We’re there for you exactly for such everyday issues.

All calls are treated confidentially; you don’t need to tell us your name. There’s usually a female and a male nightliner who you can aks for anytime.

The Nightline can be reached Sunday to Friday between 21:00 and 1:00 under +49 251 83-45400 (except for holidays and during the semester break).

Studis online

Studis online offers very comprehensive information pages about many aspects of studying. Among these are e. g. looking for an apartment, BAföG (information and BAföG calculator) and a forum.

Springer Link

Through a contract between the university and the Springer publishing company (Careful: That’s not the Axel Springer company, which publishes a well-known German tabloid!), students can download a plethora of textbooks by this company in ebook form at the so-called Springer Link. Among these are a large number of the usual physics and mathematics books such as those by Nolting, Demtröder, Fließbach, Tipler, Forster, Königsberger, and many others. You can only access the books from within the university network, so either use the university wi-fi, a university computer or set up a VPN connection at home.

Stipend platform –

The charitable Initiative for Transparent Support of Studies (Initiative für transparente Studienförderung, ItS) already collaborates with almost 1800 supporters at 346 German universities (among them 212 Student Councils) and is currently supported by 37 prominent advocates, such as the current minister of education Prof. Dr. Wanka. Different stipend programs, such as a side job stipend (full stipend for a semester abroad at the Foothill College in the San Francisco Bay Area) and the stipend program for average students (4-week language course San Diego including flight, allowance, accomodation) have been initiated and a stipend search engine is offered. If you’re interested in a stipend (including outside of support for the elite), you should visit these sites.

Studying with disabilities? –

Self-description by the charitable Initiative for Transparent Support of Studies (Initiative für transparente Studienförderung, ItS; translated):

With the portal, we show every (aspiring) student with a disability or chronic illness with few clicks which support opportunities can be applied for in the individual case. This is made possible by a matching procedure which compares the user’s profile fully automatically with a database of more than 1600 support opportunities specifically for (aspiring) students with a disability or chronic illness and suggests in real time only those which really fit one’s own vita. Our recorded support opportunities include financial help (e. g. stipends, travel compensation, aid to the deaf and blind etc.), technical aids, tailored work equipment, assistance benefits and further possibilities of support (e. g. living cost subsidies, sports and leisure offers). is financed by different foundations (such as Randstad-Stiftung, Werhahn-Stiftung and Kämpgen-Stiftung) and donations.
