Newsletter asta (ENGLISH VERSION)

Beitrag von Bernstein »

Dear students,

we as AStA (coalition of the Juso University Group and Green University Group) welcome you at the University of Kassel and wish you a great start for the winter semester.
We would like to inform you about our latest achievements:

Modification of General Provisions
The General Provisions are regulations for Bachelor- and Masterprogramms at the University of Kassel. General Provisions include formal guidelines such as attendance sheets, how many times you can retake a failed exam etc.

We have achieved the following topics:

-  A failed modul (Wahlpflicht) in every study programm can be switched once. Please refer to the examination regulations of your study programm.
-  A sick slip (Gelber Schein) is valid as a doctor's certificat.
- Vacation days and holidays which were granted in your internship contract don't need to be made up.

Microsoft Campus License
After achieving the financing of the license through the QSL-Kommission, the univeristy management has decided to buy a general license for the university. The various faculties and university administration had to agree to this. All of this took some time. The committee of Kassel University has to formally adopt a resolution of a microsoft license purchase and will then give a work order to ITS. The possible date for implementing the microsof license for students will be January/February 2015.

Work Group Media
The work group media is in place since October 1st, 2014. This group originated from the editorial staff „Medium“. More possibilities exist and there will be (besides radio- and video contribution) a structural change. You will get credits for your work, there is enough money for further education, educational trips, guest speakers and the editorial staff is structured more clearly. A fixed compensation for specific editorial duties will be paid. The work group Media is a student project which exists because of your envolvement. If you like to write articles, do a layout or have general interest in journalism than please send an e-mail to:

We are looking forward to hearing from you!
