Student Coucil

In addition to the normal relationship the USZ  has with the Student Council (as the USZ sports programme is primarily tailored to the students’ interests), the two partners have come to an agreement that especially applies to athletes of competitive sports. The Student Council has agreed to fund travel expenses to tournaments. The Student Council sports department can provide you with more information concerning the conditions for funding (e.g., regular training). It is also important to request funding far enough in advance to be sure that the Student Council has the necessary funds at its disposal.
