University Act § 19 para. 2 stipulates that the co-determination rights may only be exercised via a single representative body. Persons who could potentially be members of more than one representative body due to concurrent employment or other reasons will be automatically allocated to one representative body. Allocation to a representative body is based on the following principles:
- Students (Bachelor’s, Master’s, Teaching Diploma for Upper Secondary Education) are members of the Students Representative Body, even if they are employed at the UZH.
- Junior Researcher membership takes precedence over Senior Researcher and Teaching Staff and ATP membership.
- Senior Researcher and Teaching Staff membership takes precedence over ATP membership.
A change of membership may be requested in cases with well-founded grounds.
