In degree-awarding education, you can study either full-time, or part-time alongside work. The bachelor's degree is a higher education qualification providing professional expertise for working life. Bachelor's programmes can be completed in four years on average. The master's degree programmes are shorter and are typically completed on a part-time basis alongside work.
The Open University of Applied Sciences is, as the name suggests, open for all. You can develop your competence through part-time studies, one course at a time. At the same time, you can try out bachelor's degree studies on a small scale before applying for a whole degree programme.
The Professional Teacher Education and Special Needs Teacher Education programmes lead to a pedagogical qualification which entitles you to teach in universities of applied sciences, vocational institutions, the adult education sector, and the general education sector.
Other extension studies offer a range of possibilities to upgrade prior competence: the possibilities range from short courses on special themes to longer MBA programmes.
