You will find two important institutions of higher education policy in more detail here:
The most important platform for higher education policy work in Saxony is the KSS (Konferenz Sächsischer Studierendenschaften). Here the Saxon student councils pool their energy and expertise in order to represent their interests vis-à-vis the Saxon state government, the state ministry for science and art and the state parties in parliament. This committee meets monthly at a Saxon university location, whereby we Freiberg students occupy 2 of the total of 28 seats.
At the meetings, we discuss topics such as BAföG, student rights and demands on the state government in the field of higher education policy. Press releases are also issued on particularly important topics, which can be viewed publicly.

In the Senate, too, topics such as higher education policy are discussed. As students, we are represented here by three voting members and one advisory member, and we campaign for students’ rights and for a student-friendly orientation of our university.
