The Student Council is elected each year by the students of Berlin International. According to BI's constitution (§18), the students are entitled to form their own representative body to represent their general interests. The Student Council has key functions including electing students to voice and represent students' interests in the Academic Senate, communicating with the administration on behalf of the student body, and organizing student events.
For the academic year 2021/22, the following students were elected as regular members to the student council:

Together, we can upgrade!
