The GEW

GEW stands for Gewerkschaft Erziehung und Wissenschaft (trade union for education and science). In addition to teachers, our members include research assistants, educators, students and lecturers at non-university educational institutions.

The GEW-University Group is the officially registered association at the University of Duisburg-Essen for students interested in trade unions and educational policy who are studying teacher training, social work or other pedagogical or educational courses.

The University Information Office (Hochschulinformationsbüro or Hib) is your contact point at the university. If you have any questions, we will be happy to help you!

We also offer several information events and meet regularly as a study group to discuss topics related to the university. You are cordially invited!
