Ref LuSt update on exams and studies

Dear students,

at the beginning of the summer semester 2021 some regulations concerning exams and studies have changed again due to the Corona situation, which we would like to inform you about.

 
A pleasant news from the Ministry is that the standard period of study and the examination deadlines have been adjusted again in the last days of the winter semester. Thereby, the regulations for the last winter semester AND also for the current summer semester were adjusted together. After the corresponding change in the law, this has also already been adjusted on the enrollment certificates. This means that you can now also submit your Bafög application retroactively.
 
Furthermore, the University Library was able to reopen as of March 10. This applies to the central locations as well as the law branch library. As a result, the workstations can also be used again after pre-registration and seat reservation. It is important to note that in contrast to examinations, for example, FFP2 masks are mandatory throughout the entire stay. [1]
And also from our side again the reference to the valid measures with examinations. From now on, a “simple” mouth-nose covering (e.g. community mask) is NOT sufficient. Minimum requirement is now a surgical mask. Further information especially regarding the behavior during exams and the handling of darfichrein.de can be found here [2].
 
We will continue to keep you up to date as best we can. If you have any questions and/or suggestions, please feel free to contact us at stuve-lust@fau.de. Also, after long and many discussions, we have finally achieved partial success regarding a free shot rule. As already explained in the email from the president, it is now possible to apply for a cancellation of a failed attempt from WS20/21, should this be the reason for a final failure of an exam. This is also possible retroactively in later semesters. When applying, it should be clear that the reasons for the final failure are due to circumstances of any kind that occurred during the Corona pandemic. You will find more information about this soon on the page of the examination office or already now in the current Corona statutes under §5 Abs. 3 [3]. Good luck with your further exams and stay healthy! We know that this is not relevant for all students and that for many it is not the solution they had wished for. Nonetheless, we were able to achieve partial success here and protect individuals who were or will be facing direct de-registration. Many thanks to all who have contributed here!
 
The new summer semester begins next week. It still applies that the events are planned in such a way that “studying without attendance” is possible. Individual events in small groups, can be planned as attendance events with conditions and will then be carried out or converted depending on the infection situation. If you come across information here that still leaves questions unanswered, please feel free to contact your lecturers. Dialogue may reveal weaknesses in planning and communication that can be addressed in time for the semester to begin. You are also welcome to contact us with such concerns at any time at stuve-lust@fau.de.Außerdem. We hope that you all participated diligently in the evaluations for the winter semester. The results are an important basis for the work of the student council.
If you remember a course or a teacher from the last semester in a particularly *positive* way, because the support was particularly good or the tools used were particularly helpful, then we would be happy to receive feedback in this form [4]. As inspiration for all teachers, we would like to conduct and publish short video interviews with these “best practice examples”. The project is titled “5-Minute-Good-Teaching” (“5-Minuten-gute-Lehre”) and we look forward to your feedback.
 
Here are the most important tips for face-to-face meetings:
  • Keep your distance! In the lecture and examination rooms, the seats are marked with sufficient distance, but also remember before and after the appointment, if it is tempting to stand together and chat for a while.
  • Wear a mask! Even outside the building, if there are many people there and inside anyway. Wear the mask over your mouth AND nose, don’t finger it too often and make sure to change it after several uses. There is a general obligation to wear a mask on the entire university campus, even during exams and attendance events, which now prescribes medical masks (no FFP2 mask obligation) [5]. In the university library, however, FFP2 masks are mandatory [2].
  • Hand hygiene! Wash your hands, use disinfectants where available and otherwise refrain from eating and unnecessary touching of the face.
  • Use the darfichrein app! This is the only way that occupational safety can inform the people at risk in the vicinity in the event of a positive person.
  • Stay calm! This is an exceptional situation and no one wants to be infected, but panic will not help us. Stay calm, follow the rules, be nice and considerate, and it will be fine.
  • If you are sick, stay at home! Please, stick to it! Even if it’s just “a little cough”, stay home, don’t risk it!
  • Ask! If you are unsure about the rules or belong to a risk group for a severe course or are pregnant, please feel free to contact your examiners, the family service [6], the Corona-Info of the FAU (corona-info@fau.de) or us as student representatives (teaching and studies: stuve-lust@fau.de, speakers stuve-sprat@fau.de, StudOn-Forum [7], anonymous contact form here [8]. [9]
 
Specifically for exams, the following also applies:
  • Withdrawal from the exam is possible on the same day via meinCampus.  However, if you do not think about it, this is not a problem. A mere absence is also considered a withdrawal. You do not need a medical certificate for this. If you test positive, you have to stay at home! Actually, this is self-evident, but we want to emphasize again: you will not suffer any disadvantages due to study deadlines (GOP, etc.), these are suspended. Please stay at home and do not put your fellow students and examiners in danger!
 
Good luck in the new summer semester wishes you

Pressemitteilung: Nein zum Zwischentag!

Die Studierendenvertretung der FAU spricht sich gegen die, am 04. Juli 2015 auf dem Gelände der Frankonia geplante, Messe “Zwischentag” aus. Bei der Veranstaltung “Zwischentag” handelt es sich nach eigener Bezeichnung um eine “Freie Messe für non-konforme Verlage und Initiativen”.Einladung Sommerfest
Der Organisator der Veranstaltung, Felix Menzel, sowie der
ursprünglische Organisator, Götz Kubitschek, zählen zu Vertretern der Neuen Rechten. Die Neue Rechte vertritt ein rechtsautoritäres, nationalistisches und sexistisches Weltbild.

Auch anhand des Programms der schon stattgefundenen Zwischentagen wird klar, das es sich um eine
Veranstaltung handelt, die mit einer solidarischen und weltoffenen Gesellschaft nicht vereinbar ist.

Dass der “Zwischentag” auf dem Gelände der Burschenschaft Frankonia stattfindet, welche für ihre Verbindungen in die rechtsextreme Szene bekannt ist, spricht für sich.
“Wir fordern alle Studierenden auf, mit kreativen und lauten Aktionen gegen den “Zwischentag” zu protestieren. Das Referat gegen Diskriminierung und Rassismus der Studierendenvertretung (AntiDisRa) lädt alle ein, an unserem Bunten Sommerfest, sowie an allen stattfindenden Gegenaktionen gemeinsam ein Zeichen gegen Rechts zu setzen!”, so Tobias Langer.

Das Bunte Sommerfest findet am 4. Juli, ab 11:00 Uhr, am Bürgermeistersteg in Erlangen statt.
