Voluntary work in the University

Studying takes time and energy, yet commitment as a balance is very popular and offers the opportunity to gain important key skills: Many students do voluntary work in student initiatives. Depending on your own interests, this can still be close to your own subject - or something completely different!

Their versatile work enriches the university's offer and thus contributes to hands-on experience outside of the university. At the University of Bonn, there are numerous student groups that enrich the university life socially, culturally, university-politically and in many other ways. By the way, communication skills, personal responsibility and team skills are trained. Here are examples of some student initiatives.
