Analysis of current student numbers and vacancy situation

© Universität Bielefeld

Overall, the proportion of women among students increased continuously between 2012 and 2017 and stabilized at around 80%.

The proportion of female students in both Bachelor's and Master's programmes is higher than the number of male students.

The reason for the high share of women is probably that topics such as "health" and "communication" continue to be of particular interest to women.

In general, the employment situation of women at the faculty can be assessed as positive compared to other faculties.

The increased share of female professors (44%) is particularly positive.

Compared to the last reporting period, the proportion of women in the academic mid-level increased from 61% in 2015 to 68% in 2017.

Compared to the last equality plan, the staffing of the faculty's mid-level staff changed in favour of women both in the third-party and budget-financed posts. In the case of budget-related positions, however, the target of at least 50% women has not yet been achieved and they are still slightly under-represented.

A closer look at the proportion of women at the various qualification levels reveals a tendency towards a decreasing proportion of women with increasing qualifications, albeit at a high level.

Women are still disadvantaged with regard to their income situation and the use of "career springboards". It is therefore important to continue to focus on women, especially when it comes to filling highly paid positions, budget-related positions and permanent academic mid-level positions, where they are still disadvantaged.
