at Least a handful of graduates from the University of Copenhagen (KU) can risk to go back to school, even though they have completed their studies.
The writing Magisterbladet.
They are as sidefagsstuderende been affected by an administrative error, which means that they have read the 30 ECTS-points for little in relation to Education and Forskningsministeriets guidelines for what needs to be done to be able to read education.
they Want to be teachers, they must, therefore, go back and read a semester, in order to get the missing points. It writes Magisterbladet.
This is Copenhagen University, the third university after the first Aalborg University and then the University of Aarhus, where the same administrative error has been discovered. A mistake, which has now hit a total of several hundred candidates and students.
- It is the exact same error we have discovered, as Aalborg and Aarhus University also discovered that they had, " says Rie Snekkerup, who is the deputy director for education at KU to Magisterbladet.
KU rejected otherwise back in the spring of 2018 opposite the Magisterbladet that the university should have committed the same error as the other universities.
But when the Ministry of education and the ministry of science and Education asked the university to investigate, discovered the university anyway, the error was also here.
In the spring of 2018 first discovered Aalborg University (AAU), to more than 100 graduates and 44 students, had been hit by a bug, which means that they sidefagsstuderende with special fagkombinationer not live up to the ministry's guidelines on how many points you must read before you have the skills to start with to read education to become a high school teacher.
In the fall of 2018 then discovered the University of Aarhus (AU), that the university had committed the same error. 211 graduates were affected, and 60 need to go back and read the missing points, the university has most recently reported.
And now the error then also discovered at KU. Here are the four graduates and one student who has been affected by administrative errors.
The five people identified, and KU is in the process of contacting them. Therefore, at KU yet not exactly what the four graduates are doing today, and whether they therefore need to go back and read the missing points. They want to read the missing points, be it at the UNIVERSITY's expense', points out Rie Snekkerup opposite Magisterbladet.
even Though the administrative error at the UNIVERSITY is the same, it is still of a different nature than that on the AU and AAU, where you have managed the rules wrong for a number of years.
this is Why far fewer of the UNIVERSITY of copenhagen also been affected, explains Rie Snekkerup, which started at KU in January 2019 and, therefore, is entirely new in this case.
- We can in our review to see to the four graduates and one student, which has been affected here, is effected on the basis of a human error. There is no pattern in the fault in our HONOR-system, so it is a coincidence that precisely those five people are affected, says Rie Snekkerup.
THIS is the system, where the university keeps records of all prøveforsøg and results, and how many points each student has achieved based on the curriculum.
- Therefore it is also difficult for us to find out how we can avoid the mistake happening again. We must now discuss with our hinterland. It can be, we need to change in our instructions or change a systemmæssig setup in the STUFF, like countering, that this error happens again, says Rie Snekkerup.
She explains that the UNIVERSITY has reviewed all of the cases back to 2011 and found more affected than the five persons.
the University's data sets, however, goes not further back than 2011, and therefore, can Rie Snekkerup also do not deny that there can potentially be multiple candidates from KU, which actually is missing the necessary points in relation to the guidelines.
- the Probability is not great, but there is potentially a risk that more had to back and read, says Rie Snekkerup and explains that a further finkæmning of data archives will be very resource intensive.
- We have, therefore, not going to investigate it further. We are also not imposed by ministry or Agency, because they assess it in the same way as us - the error is not systematic structural, but a human”, says Rie Snekkerup.
