Course content

This degree course is seven semesters in duration, with six being theoretical and one internship. This internship is undertaken in the fifth semester and the seventh semester is then reserved for the final exams.

The course is structured around areas of competence called modules, and therefore enables the student to design their studies, focusing on their individual strengths, interests and ambitions. This innovative course concept encompasses and implements the idea of the Bologna reform in a very comprehensive manner:

  • Study in a matrix structure
  • Free choice of lectures offered
  • Individual curriculum design
  • ECTS point creditation

Students compose their own curriculum, however it is specified that a certain number of ECTS must be achieved in each module group, and to gain international academic progress, coursework and lectures in various languages can and should be taken. Achievements for each subject within a module group are graded, the individual scores are included in the overall grade of the module group and this then contributes to the final grade of the entire course.

The foundation exam must be successfully completed with at least 40 credits by the end of the third semester.

The practical study units are an integral part of the total course and are not completed in a block, rather continuously completed according to the chosen career plan and documented in internship diaries.

Successful graduates receive a Bachelor's degree certificate and degree supplement documents which show all subjects and modules taken, so future employers can easily see the exact course strucure and focus area.
