University of Cooperative Education Saarland
A sponsored degree course is an alternative to pure university study. It combines scientific study with periods of practical training in enterprises.
During the course, which lasts three years, you will alternate between periods of theoretical study and practical work. You will work in our company from more than 50% of the time and will become familiar with all the relevant tasks in each specialised field. The rest of the time will be spent at the University of Cooperative Education acquiring the knowledge needed to become a business IT specialist.
The studies at the University of Cooperative Education Saarland are structured into three blocks which alternate with practical periods in our company. Academic and practical modules take between 6 and 12 weeks. During your course, you will work in different departments, business areas and projects. The subjects covered in the practical periods in our company coincide with the subject matter at the university. In this way, you can apply, extend and deepen your theoretical knowledge at practical level in our various sectors. You will be involved in different fields and projects right from the start of the study course in order to get to know the complex IT world first-hand and experience day-to-day business close up. By working in different projects, you will have the chance to accept responsibility, demonstrate skills and gain experience after a short time. The combination of practical working periods and theory allows you to broaden your knowledge and to further develop and improve your skills.
A Bachelor of Arts degree is awarded at the end of the course.
