With us you study in the full-time study model, but from the 3rd semester in a so-called block structure. This means that the attendance time at our university is compressed and you can also be active in your professional activities.
Your studies take place during the week in the first two semesters. From the 3rd semester on, the attendance time of the practice-integrated study model comprises 6 blocks per semester and thus 4 to 5 attendance days per month. This means that you can ideally combine your attendance time with your professional activity and your private requirements, and you have the opportunity to acquire new knowledge and apply it directly in practice at the same time. In particular, the internship, which is integrated into the study program, enables you to gain valuable insights into the professional activities of a “high professional”. You will be part of a multi-professional team in fields such as prevention, counseling, diagnostics and therapy. Before, during and after the internship, you will also receive continuous practical support from lecturers at our university.
If you already have relevant professional experience in this field, you can shorten your studies to 2 years / 4 semesters. You will then enter directly into the 3rd semester. We would be happy to check this possibility at any time on the basis of your application documents. Please do not hesitate to contact us.
After completing your studies, a wide range of career opportunities are open to you.
Fields of employment for our graduates:
