As the official student representative body of ETH Zurich, VSETH has a great deal of representation on a wide variety of committees. The opinions of the students are sought after and therefore it is very important to actively contribute our opinion. Many representations are very suitable for coming into contact with the higher education political system at ETH and for practicing the concrete representation of interests in decision-making bodies. They are often also very beginner-friendly. The list of representations including a description can be found here.
