Fachschaft Anglistik

Welcome to the Homepage of the University of Freiburg's Fachbereich Anglistik
– aka Fachschaft Anglistik!

Are you looking for information about our program for first-years and other Fachschaft events, or just curious what we're up to all the time? Then you're in the right place! 

The English Fachschaft

Your Fachschaft

What the heck is a Fachschaft?

As your Fachbereichsvertretung (departmental representatives), we take care of you, the students of the English Department. That doesn’t mean we make you soup when you’re sick, though; we’re your first point of contact if you have questions or problems concerning your English studies, and we represent your interests in communication with the department and the university administration. Furthermore, we’re your representatives in various areas of student government, e.g. in the university’s Studierendenrat (student council) and in the Philological Faculty’s Fakultätsrat (faculty council). You can find our official Geschäftsordnung (bylaws) here.

To ensure campus social life doesn’t get neglected, we also organize various events, e.g. during first-year orientation week.

 

What we do

Fachschaft meetings


During the semester, the Fachschaft usually meets Wednesday at 18:00 c.t. in our room in the AStA-Haus, Belforstr. 24 (second floor). English students are always welcome to join us – just write us an !

You can find records of our sessions here.

Ersti-Woche & Ersti-Hütte


In the week before the winter semester starts, we organize communal activities for first-years, like scavenger hunts, pub crawls, hangover brunches, or hikes.

Every winter semester - except during pandemics - the Fachschaft also organizes an Ersti-Hütte, a weekend trip for first-semester English students. For three days, we rent a cabin (Hütte) in the Black Forest and plan games and other activities to give you the opportunity to get to know each other and us in a relaxed, fun environment.

Unfortunately, the Ersti-Hütte in the 2021/22 winter semester cannot take place.

At the beginning of each winter semester, you can find current info about first-year orientation right here!

 

Book Sale


 You can find our inventory of books here.

Are you looking to buy your books for the summer semester cheaply? Or are you simply interested in some new reading material?

Then you are in luck — because the Fachschaft Anglistik's book sale is back (in a Corona-safe format)!

After checking our list of available books, you can simply come by room 4005, on the ground floor of KG IV, on Mondays and Thursdays from 11am and Tuesdays 2.30–3.30pm to get your book(s).

The prices are negotiable. If possible, please bring the money in cash.

If you can't make these times, have any questions or already know that you will get a large number of books (so we can get them ready for you), just get in touch with the FSA on Instagram or via email.

Proceeds will go towards the Fachschaft Anglistik, so we can organize fun things for you in the future!
