It sucks time like a cluster of black holes !
And why ? Because german university freaks out on that *new* bachelor master system. Everything is supposed to be electronic and via internet. And now Im carrying around a folder with sheets where my profs can write down their signatures and in the end I get a stamp on that thing ... like 1830 AD.
just without cool stuff like steampunk machines , magic radioactivity and alchemy. (which certainly existed back then)
But thats just one point. Another is that they shortened the study time a lot (from about 7 years to 5) WITHOUT shortening the stuff you have to learn. So 98 % of the people learn the book by heart ,write the exam and forget. Probably 70 % of the people in my year cant answer simple question about things you learn at school.
You get grades like in school, you get homework (FFS homework !, why did I finish school ? Just to run into more homework ? I wanted to work by myself onto my OWN goals and with my OWN methods), I did a year civil duty and during that time I had way more responsibility and decision power about what I do and how. Even though I was officially doing a duty with a coordinator and higher ops.
I expected university to be a place where you can think on your own , have your own way through the science you love and graduate on the topics you prefer.
But thx to the crippled bachelor university culture died and Im in school again.
