Teaching careers with Bachelor's degrees and Master's degrees

At the start, you will study a Dual-Subject Bachelor's Programme with two school subjects for three years. After gaining your Bachelor's degree you will study a Master of Education (M.Ed.) Programme for two years.

The Master's degree is a prerequisite for teacher training (Referendariat). On successfully completing your teacher training and passing the second state examination, you will be qualified to teach in schools.
