This degree course provides you with the skills necessary to meet the increasing demand for highly qualified health educators and respond to the increase in professionalization in the health sector.

Admission requirements

To directly enrol in the degree course, you need a general higher education entrance qualification (allgemeine Hochschulreife), a subject-specific higher education entrance qualification (fachgebundene Hochschulreife) or an entrance qualification for universities of applied sciences (Fachhochschulreife). Do you not have a school leaving certificate giving general right of entry to higher education (Abitur) or subject-specific higher education entrance qualification (Fachabitur)? Then recognised continuing education and technical college qualifications (e.g. Technician, Master Craftsperson, Business Economist, Business Administrator, Educator, etc.) in combination with a counselling interview also entitle you to a study place. If you do not have a continuing education or technical college qualification, but have completed vocational training and have professional experience, then you can start studying after successfully completing the university aptitude test.
