The System Of Higher Education In The Germany

This is the first article of a series.

The history of higher education in this country goes back to the 1492, when it was established by King Henry VIII and then King Maximilian II (Miguel Castelló). It took place at the university level. A year later, in 1506, King John III and his son King Albert established university schools for teachers and students.

These universities had an exclusive focus on teaching, and students had to pay certain charges for admission. In 1513, King John introduced various regulations that were meant to regulate how universities were run.

In 1612, King John declared himself supreme head of all universities. He had several powers to determine how university professors would be paid, how they would be allowed to teach, and how much money they would receive for their services. Some scholars complained that these rules did not go far enough in regulating the status of university teachers. They were supposed to find other ways of dealing with such issues.

In 1618, Martin Luther founded the University of Wittenberg, which became an independent university from the king’s jurisdiction over them. In the 17th century, universities in Berlin and Munich began producing their own laws. While most universities concentrated on the main teaching areas, there was still some influence from the court. Most of the faculty members were from prominent families like the Saxons, Bishops, and courtiers.

In 1815, King George I ordered universities to allow female faculties and to accept foreign students, but this did not occur until 1917. During World War I, several German universities joined forces against the government. They were now free as their faculty members no longer had any special privileges under the king’s authority. By the end of World War I, only 20 out of 1,700 universities had women faculty.

In 1932, some universities found themselves completely unrecognized, because they were no longer considered as part of the public welfare. In 1951, all universities were recognized again because women and minorities were allowed equal rights and a unified approach towards studying and passing knowledge. Since then, the number of women who have obtained a master’s or doctorate rose exponentially.

In 1958, however, the chancellor, Walter Dix, proposed a new law that would have forced universities to follow some specific rules such as allowing only one woman to teach a field or subject while another woman was absent. After that, many more universities did not have access to funds for their research work. In 1982, President Ronald Reagan offered to allocate funds to support a program that would force universities to open up its programs to any student who wanted to go to a particular discipline.

At present, universities are required to adhere to some conditions as well. For instance, applicants must study a certain field completely before graduating. Additionally, only non-German speakers are accepted and only those with a degree, diploma, or certificate will be able to obtain admissions. Only people with relatives residing in Germany at the time are granted admission. Universities should be ready to welcome students from almost any nation. There are also requirements of funding an international exchange program.

There are many issues that are currently being worked out by the Department of Education and Higher Education Administration concerning the current situation at universities in Germany. However, the system remains very rigid.

One may wonder whether this has something to do with having been established way back in 1506 and the fact that it is highly bureaucratic. Another factor could be the desire to protect the legacy of the previous administration.

In addition, it could be possible that they believe that this is unnecessary, because all other European nations have similar curriculums. Therefore, the possibility could arise that, just like other European countries, this is something that has happened here as well. One should remember that Germany is often thought of as having “good universities” even though some people may think otherwise.

Nevertheless, the German government did recognize the importance of having good universities at several events. Among others, there are multiple conferences devoted to the question of Germany’s universities and the future of higher education. Moreover, numerous discussions concerning science were held in Germany in the mid-1980s. With the rise of political parties and progressive movements in Germany, there was a huge need for universities to become more active in addressing the problems of its citizens.

The issue concerning the increase in tuition rates is currently being closely looked at by the German parliament and is being investigated. According to the existing regulations, university tuition continues to rise without causing major trouble for students. Students are still required to spend roughly 30 per cent of their income to cover school fees. Because there is a great deal of dissatisfaction among students, many people feel that they are struggling financially.

What is most important is that schools are aware of this problem and that it affects the quality of education offered to young people. That is why many university administrators have made attempts to reform the law.

There is no particular reason why students and parents of German citizens would want a higher tuition rate, unless this was due to various reasons like not having access to proper facilities and equipment, lack of scholarship opportunities, or the hope to get into a prestigious private university.

Due to the economic situation, many students have to rely on grants and loans to finance their studies. Such grants and loans are quite limited. Moreover, obtaining a scholarship can prove to be a very lengthy process and sometimes involves waiting until years to obtain anything.

Overall, college graduates are extremely indebted to society. Therefore, granting more financial aid to students may seem like a good idea if a person wants to find a better life for themselves. Unfortunately, the majority of Germans cannot afford to pay higher prices to pursue their career.

Thus, raising the price for higher education can negatively affect individuals who have no means to succeed in their endeavors. Moreover, the government knows that they can take the necessary measures to reduce the demand, hence reducing tuition rates. But the higher tuition can put pressure onto people, especially students, to come up with strategies to stay afloat. Allowing people to keep up with their educational progress is crucial for future prosperity.
