I think itis not possible to partition a table on two servers in this way.
You have to define two different tables and to use dblink on both machines
When you will need the whole table UNION them in a view:
CREATE OR REPLACE VIEW joint_stud AS
SELECT * FROM stud
UNION ALL
SELECT * FROM stud@oracle3;

On the other instance create the same view but using a DBlink to the first instance.
