The AV

AV actually stands for Ausländer*innen Vertretung, which translated means Representation of Foreign Students and that is a good summary of what our organization does.

Once a year, during the university elections, all international student can vote for their representatives. That is how our group comes together.

Coming from all around the world, our team is very diverse, all with different backgrounds and studies.

Who you gonna call? ~Ghost busters.~ The AV.
