I'll never get my degree

Posted on:July 06 2006

Honestly, I knew that it would take a lot of time until I would get my academic title. Simply because I am working full time and only studying as hobby. But now, after about $CENSORED_HUGE_NUMBER$ semesters, I've only one exam left. But wrong - just some days ago the deanery has changed the whole degree course scheme. There are new courses and exams to do and if it stays like this I'll won't see my academic degree so soon. They also made the study more difficult for new students. I'm a bit angry about this and it looks like I am not the only one. Fortunately, there will be a course exchange plan but who knows, as it looks like our dean is unable to cope (read here why) - they'll fuck it up as well. But most of the other Prof's are very ok, maybe they'll be able to compensate.


Cheer up dear niko, you will make it! ;)

your last exam will be made too. I'll hope :) remember you have more than 45 passed examinations and only one failed! btw that's impressive you're working secondary :)

I don't think you will lose any lecture or have new exams. There will be "transition rules" so that you can finish your studies with the old plan. They are still unpublished but must be ready until 1st Oct 2006.

Nevertheless, the whole study plan changing process and the new STEP rule are more than questionable.

We have already adapted the Bologna process here some years ago, so we already know how this feels after some years experience. So I'd say the Fachschaft is wrong with STEP (if I understood this concept correctly), but indeed the lack of free choices of (additional) lectures to participate makes the overall situation worse.
But for your case there will be definitely something like the mentioned transition rule. We still have students that make exams under rules which have been replaced about 7 years ago!

In the US typically you follow the degree plan you started when you entered the college. You have the ability to go with any new plan but if you do you cannot revert back to the old plan.

For example I am getting my graduate degree in Software Engineering and working full time. It has been a year an a half and I have one class left and my thesis to do. They just told me that the degree in Software Engineering has been removed and people can only get Computer Science degrees. After talking with them however I am still allowed to get my degree in Software Engineering because I started before they cancelled it. It seems they would do the same for you.
