Last week, more than 10,000 student demonstrated in about 70 cities around Germany to call for improved school condition and funding.

After several federal states started to abandon the ‘free tuition’ policy, the conflict began to elevate. Students have to pay at least 500 euro each semester. It is not a small amount of money for ordinary German citizens.

Another reason is that Germany employs the new ‘bachelor+master’ study system instead of the traditional ‘diploma’ system. The new system is in accordance with the Bologna process, which is signed by 46 European countries. In the past, most German university students graduate with a ‘diploma’ degree, which is equivalent to the ‘master’ in other countries. It is relatively easy to find a job with the ‘diploma’ degree. With the new system, more students earn a bachelor degree and go for a job. Now the economic recession hits the job market, and bachelor students seem not to be able to find a good job. Thus, students want the old system back.
