University of Applied Sciences Trier
The sponsored degree programme in Business Administration at the University of Applied Sciences Trier combines vocational IT training with a university course in Business Informatics so that, after four years, participants obtain both a vocational training certificate in IT and a university degree. This double qualification is an attractive alternative and provides the opportunity to obtain two qualifying, recognised certificates and earn money during the course of studies.
Schedule of studies
In the first year, the focus is on vocational training in the company which is complemented by theoretical training at the vocational school.
Studies at the University of Applied Sciences Trier start in the second year. Learning phases at the University of Applied Science Trier alternate with periods in the company. During lecture-time, the students take part in the Business Informatics courses while deepening their knowledge during the lecture-free times by working in the company.
In the fourth semester, the practical period is performed in the company and ends with the final vocational exam at the Chamber of Industry and Commerce after the third year.
During the last year, the students work in the company’s IT sector during the lecture-free times but otherwise participate in the relevant university courses. They complete their studies in Business Informatics with a Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) degree.
