Students who have the aim of attaining the teaching qualification for vocational schools complete their studies in a tiered course structure. Firstly, the Bachelor's degree course in Vocational Training at the Universität Osnabrück must be completed or proof provided of an equivalent degree obtained at another university in the appropriate subject, or in a closely related subject with a corresponding teacher-training specialisation and one of the vocational specialisations in Health Sciences, Cosmetology or Nursing, Electrical Engineering, Metals Technology or Ecotrophology. The Master's degree course "Teaching Qualification (vocational school-level)" in Health Sciences, Cosmetology or Nursing, as well as - in cooperation with the Hochschule Osnabrück foundation - in Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Metals Technology or Ecotrophology, is oriented towards the professional field of schools and builds onto this course. For the Master's course, an application and proof of practical professional experience is required in any case: for the specialisations in Health Sciences, Cosmetology, Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Metals Technology and Ecotrophy 52 weeks, whereby 26 weeks can be completed by the end of the Master's degree course\; in Nursing, as a rule, completed relevant professional training. A Master's degree is the prerequisite for admission to postgraduate civil service. In the Teaching Qualification degree course, Sport is studied in combination with the subject area selected in the Bachelor's degree course. As part of the Master's supplementary course "Complementary Subject for the Teaching Qualification for Vocational Schools", a further teaching subject can be studied. Therefore, in addition to Sport, the following can fundamentally be studied as an additional teaching subject: Biology (only with the areas of Health Sciences, Cosmetology or Nursing), German, English, Protestant Religion, Computer Science, Catholic Religion, Mathematics or Physics. If the other chosen subject is English, during registration for the degree examination, proof of a three-month course-relevant stay abroad in a country in which English is the official language must be provided. In addition to the subject area and the teaching subject, the study of Vocational and Economics Education (BWP) is mandatory; within this, skills in the field of vocational education are taught. The didactics of vocational teaching and learning is also a component. Preparatory and follow-up placements at vocational schools must be completed within the scope of the special in-school practical studies and in subject-related work placements. The Master's thesis can be written in the professional subject area, in the teaching subject or in vocational and economics education.

In addition, proof of at least 21 credit points in Vocational and Economic Education, a 5-week practice teaching work placement as well a sufficient command of German\; for further admission requirements, see the admission regulations.
