Leipzig – Studying in times of Corona? That’s loud at the University of Leipzig Student_innenRat (StuRa) difficult. Because the university denies the students the necessary support.
“In contrast to the University of Leipzig, the Technical University of Dresden is setting a good example: There all examination attempts are counted as free attempts, the semester cannot be counted towards the standard period of study upon application and repetition periods are suspended,” says StuRa consultant Nico Eisbrenner.
However, according to a statement from the StuRas, there were no such reliefs at the Leipzig University in relation to the Corona crisis.
The university justifies its approach with courses adapted to the situation and better semester preparation – however, the university should only run in minimal operation from a seven-day incidence of 50.
Sharp criticism: “The only thing that seems to be the focus is getting exams over the stage. The students are simply left out in the rain!”, Says StuRa advisor Paul Reinhard.
Even the successful graduation of many students is in jeopardy, says StuRa advisor Felix Fink: “It has once again been shown that the University of Leipzig is experiencing such a large influx not because of its student friendliness, but mainly because of the attractive city this location advantage for years. “
And further: “Especially now, when university life is almost paralyzed, it makes us speechless that the university does not approach the students a millimeter and provides relief.”
