Your ASA-experience– vom Hörsaal in die Welt

Fancy a change of perspective? For a project in which sustainability really counts? For an experience that shows you ways to get involved? And a scholarship that makes all this possible for you?

The ASA programme is a development policy learning and qualification programme and enables students and trainees between the ages of 21 and 30 to work on three to six-month projects at partner institutions in Africa, Asia, Latin America or Southeast Europe. Whether environmental education in Benin, gender justice in Mexico or human rights in India: the projects are as diverse as the partner institutions themselves.

Seminars lasting several days before and after the project phase round off the programme. From development cooperation and sustainability goals to project management and reflecting on your own role in global contexts - the seminars are designed to inspire you and prepare you for your departure. After the project phase, they give you space to reflect on what you have experienced.

Interested? Applications are accepted every year from November/December through the ASA-website.

Regional group Effective Altruism

Would you like to contribute to effectively making the world a better place? Then you've come to the right place.
We, the local group Effective Altruism, are concerned with the question of how the world can be improved. We take a bird's eye view of the world and try to find suitable areas of action in which a great deal can be achieved. In our opinion, examples of such areas include global poverty, animal suffering and future risks (AI, pandemics, climate change).
The group is made up of students from different disciplines. All are welcome. You don't need any special prior knowledge and are welcome to join in without any obligation.
Having fun is particularly important to us. For example, we occasionally go to the Eulenspiegel and discuss philosophical issues over a beer ;)
You want to drop by? Then simply write to us by email at or take a look at our Facebook page We will then let you know directly when our next meeting or project is taking place.


Arbeitskreise des Sprecher- und Sprecherinnenrates

Dedicated students meet in various working groups and work on topics that are important to them. Thus, everyone can contribute to the design of the university and make a difference. Only in this way the multitude of ideas can actually be put into practice. In addition, it is a lot of fun and there are nice people.

The working groups are open to everyone and you are welcome to drop by for a non-binding meeting.

English Drama Group

The English Drama Group is looking for actors at the beginning of each semester. Check the EDG website and look out for the posters for audition dates. New backstage crew members are always welcome. Please contact the producer and ask for the next meeting.

Studiobühne Unitheater Würzburg

UniTheater Würzburg, studi(o)bühne, is a department of JMU’s student representation. As a stage by students for students we stand for experimental "trial theatre". At UniTheater you can play a role as an actor, organizer, director, technician, stage designer and much more and realize your ideas. Each group stages their play organizationally and content-wise without specifications, no matter whether classical or modern, comical or tragic - everything is allowed. Are you interested? Join us.

Debattierclub Würzburg

Since our foundation in the summer semester of 2006, we have been a rapidly growing group of currently 20 students who meet every week for a debate. Non-students are also welcome! They argue with firm rules about current topics from politics and society - fair, sporty and humorous.

Everyone who is interested should be taught the skills to argue clearly, objectively and credibly. Furthermore these acquired skills should enable participants to engage in public debates and to moderate them.

We want to gain rhetorical confidence in our regular public debates. At the same time, it is important for us to consolidate personal knowledge and points of view through the emerging polarization.

The motivation to join our discussion group is manifold: Anyone who wants to successfully debate with decision-makers and public officials after graduating, obtain an additional qualification, meet interesting people or simply get rid of their shyness, anyone who wants to become politically active or convincingly represent their interests  - this is exactly the right way to do so with us. -

Uni Radio Würzburg

Uniradio tries to offer its listeners the most varied programme possible around the University of Würzburg, the city and its people. In the course of time, several categories have been added, including the band lounge, radio plays, the U&D special and the “Uniradio Wahlsommer”. We always try to report critically and entertainingly in order to offer our listeners more than the usual 08/15 radios. Our motto is: Better than any permanent wave.

Do you like to write, photograph or make radio contributions? Then you have to come to the right place! If you are interested in joining us, then write us an e-mail at or simply come to the next UniRadio meeting, every Thursday at 19:30 in front of the Studentenhaus! -
