Survey on the effectiveness of BAföG funding for studies (German only)

Dear students,

We cordially invite you to participate in a study on the financing of studies, especially on BAföG. Every student can participate, no matter if they receive BAföG or not. Among the participants 100 times 25€ will be raffled. The survey takes about 15 minutes to complete.
Participation in the study will take place via an online survey, which will be conducted by the Max Planck Institute for Research on Collective Goods in Bonn. The Stuve will be provided with the results, which do not allow any conclusions to be drawn about individual persons, so that they can help you in a targeted way on-site.
The survey will run until May 31 and can be accessed via the link below. Participation in the survey is voluntary and anonymous. Data will be kept confidential and used for research purposes only. The survey is in German!

We hope that many of you will choose to participate in this study and make an important contribution to improving the situation for students.

Yours sincerely,
Max Planck Institute Bonn

Info-Event for teacher trainees

With this event we want to give those who study to become teachers in elementary and middle school an opportunity to ask questions about the state’s training program which is mandatory after university (“Referendariat”). Since this training program is only acessable for German speakers (which, by the way, our union criticises), the event will be in German, as well.

Zoom chat: Studying with a disability

Studying can present a wide range of challenges for people with physical, mental and chronical disabilities and illnesses. In a relaxed atmosphere, the Zoom chat on 5.May and 29.May 2023 at 4 p.m. will provide a digital space for networking and exchanging tips and tricks about studying with disabilities. The chat takes place regularly on every 2nd Friday.

The link to the Zoom chat is available on the website of the Office for Gender and Diversity .

Free youth concert in Nürnberg

For two years we couldn’t see our favorite bands live. Now inflation kicks in and we can hardly pay for our free time. Culture should be accessible to EVERYONE, because it increases the quality of life and means social participation! At the same time, artists and the event industry urgently need support! That’s why we organized a youth concert for all of us to focus on the social value of art and culture and: Because we’re just in the mood to have a good time and dance into May 1st!

So: Pack up your friends, your family, fellow students and colleagues and come on April 30th. to the Kornmarkt in Nuremberg! Celebrate in solidarity for free!

The next day we go demonstrating. It’s May 1st – the day of the working class!:
In Erlangen: 11:00 a.m. Neustädter Kirchenplatzz. In Nuremberg: 10:00 a.m. Aufseßplatz
