What Is This Programme About?
A dual study programme is designed to allow students to work in the respective field while studying. In other words, while taking the Social Work degree, you work simultaneously for one of our cooperation partners in a social work setting.
Why Choose This Programme?
Organised as an online study programme with only one practical block a month (five per semester, Friday and Saturday), you can study at Fulda University and live and work in your home town, if necessary travelling to Fulda for the mandatory attendance phases. The dual study programme in Social Work is aimed primarily at individuals
- who want to earn a living and study simultaneously,
- who have already done social work in a voluntary capacity, e.g. in self-help groups, and want to pursue a career in social work,
- who have discovered social work as a potential profession, in other words, they are interested in a career change and want to gain a basic qualification.
How is the programme structured?
The dual study programme is based on the blended learning concept with three learning environments. As a student
- you spend between 15 and 28 hours a week working
- you study from home via an e-learning platform (approx. 20 hours a week)
- you attend on-campus weekends (Friday and Saturday) once a month at Fulda University.
The programme requires students to score 210 credit points according to the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS), including 115 credit points gained from periods of self-study and 65 credit points from attendance phases and project work (one credit point equals around 30 hours of work).
By obtaining state recognition, you score 30 credit points.
Where does it lead?
Having combined theoretical study and practical training at an early stage, you have a good chance of being able to start your career with your practical placement partner. The skills and experience you have gained make you highly employable, also for other employers.
The relevant professional experience gained during your time at university also equips you to take on positions of responsibility earlier on in your career.
After graduating, of course, you can also continue your education by taking a (part-time) Master's degree.
