Remove the Study-Unit-System for accreditation! Students want credits for every passed exam or project!
This petition goes out to:
The directors of "HAN Hogeschool van Arnhem en Nijmegen"
The common system of accreditation at universities around the world is giving credits for every individual exam/project or comparable work that has been completed successfully by the student. At the HAN University of Applied Science in Arnhem and Nijmegen (NL) however, students don't get rewarded for their accomplished work immediately, which would be logical and fair.
At the HAN, the students first have to pass every single part of a study unit, which consists of at least three to four different exams plus projects, before they are able to earn the credits for the included workload. This leaves the students under constant pressure, doubting and insecure, waiting for the last result of their hard work while they might have already passed most of their exams/projects. Just failing one of those individual parts would leave you with no credits for this unit at all. This is not fair!
Due to the fact that students are only allowed to fail two study units in order to gain the needed 45 credits, there is the possibility of a student failing a whole year with only three exams/projects failed during that period.
That is why, the study unit accreditation needs to be removed! There has to be an appropriate accreditation for EVERY pass.
With enough signatures, we can change the system and make this new way of earning credits possible!
Let's make the HAN a fairer and more rewarding place to study at!
