Thanks for your answer. The procedure you describe would solve my problem, though I would need to add the “student” role to all blogs, even if they are not needed there.
Anyhow, I still have a problem with this procedure: I do not see the “Apply to All Sites” option, when I edit the custom role in the main blog (see screenshot of what I see: https://www.dropbox.com/s/757g8yga9q6dekk/userroleeditor%20options.jpg?dl=0)
Am I missing something…?
