    For more information about the elections and reasons to vote check the current issue of the htu.info you have at home. All degree programme non-degree programme students have the active and passive electoral right, when they have paid their students’ union (ÖH) fee by the deadline, which was the 28th of March.

    Often the words “Studienvertretung”, and “Fachschaft” be equated with each other at the TU Vienna, but there are the following differences:
    * The “Studienvertretung”  is a representative body of law  while the “Fachschaft”  is a voluntary association of dedicated students.
    * The members of the “Studienvertretung” are elected by people choice (see above) for a term of office of two years, while in the “Fachschaft” all can participate according to their interests and opportunities.legal obligated
    * Due to this structure it is possible  that you can get more offers and support as this  legal obligated advice.
    * Currently all student program representatives are members of so called “Fachschaften”.
