Health Care (Teaching Degree)


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 academic degree obtained at another university in the appropriate subject, or in a closely related subject with a corresponding teacher-training specialisation and the vocational specialisation in Health Sciences. The Master's degree course "Teaching Qualification for Vocational Schools" specialising in Nursing, which is oriented towards the professional field of schools, builds onto this course. For the Master's course, an application and, in general, proof of completed relevant professional training is required in any case. A Master's degree is the prerequisite for admission to postgraduate civil service. In the Teaching Qualification degree course, Nursing is studied in combination with the teaching subject 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. This can generally be Biology, German, English, Protestant Religion, Computer Science, Islamic Religion, Catholic Religion, Mathematics, Physics or Sports. Protestant and Catholic Religion are excluded as another teaching subject, however, if one of these teaching subjects has already been studied as a teaching subject. If the 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 of Nursing 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 internships. The Master's thesis can be written in the professional subject area, in the teaching subject or in vocational and economics education.
