No I am not my university does not provide any support. So the students
set up their own accounts. (I even thought of deleting my account and
re-create it, however I would then loose my other repositories, that I
need then to re-create).

Maybe the easiest solution would be I ask the students generate a group
to fork the repositories into that group and later delete that group.
However knowing them, I am quite sure that only half of them or less
would delete that group.
