Programme with extended practice – bachelor’s or master’s degree programmes

Focus on practice + flexible

Do you feel that a regular degree programme would be too theoretical and you’d rather also gain useful practical experience from the start? The programme with extended practice combines a regular bachelor’s degree programme at the university with intensive practical placements at one of our partners relating to your academic subject matter.

Bachelor’s degree programme

  • Duration: 3.5 years (incl. 16 months of work experience and 3 months spent writing your bachelor’s thesis)
  • Award: Bachelor’s degree (B.A., B.Eng., B.Sc., LL.B.)

Master’s degree programme

  • Duration: 1.5 years full-time or 3 years part-time (at least 8.5 months of work experience, incl. your master’s thesis)
  • Award: Master’s degree programme (M.Eng., M.A., M.Sc.)

How does it work?
You alternate between work placements and studying theory. You spend time in your company during the lecture-free periods, putting what you’ve learned into practice. In contrast to regular degree programmes, you will receive pay from the start and are entitled to holiday during university vacation time. You have plenty of time and scope to decide on adding extended practice, e.g. on a bachelor’s degree programme you have until the 4th semester to choose a company, sign a work contract and then continue studying in dual / cooperative mode. In contrast with combined programmes, every degree programme at Kempten University of Applied Sciences can be studied in liaison with a partner company or institution working in the relevant field. This also applies to master’s degree programmes.

Combined degree programmes in Bavaria

Vocational training and academic studies rolled into one

Academic studies or vocational training? A combined degree programme enables you to complete formal vocational training at the same time as a bachelor’s degree.

Duration: 4.5 years (incl. 27.5 months’ practical experience and 3 months spent writing your bachelor’s thesis)
Qualifications awarded: Bachelor’s degree (B.A., B.Eng., B.Sc.) and certification by the professional chamber

How does it work?
You will spend the first year working as an apprentice in a company, while also attending vocational college. At that point, you will commence your degree programme, having already gained some initial hands-on experience. From then on, you will be guided along by the university of applied sciences, your company and the vocational college – with the timing, organisation and subject matter coordinated by all three. You will receive regular wages throughout and are entitled to holiday during semester vacations. If you’re keen on gaining practical experience, combined studies with integrated vocational training are just the right choice. A double qualification in both academic studies and vocational training stand you in perfect stead for your working life.
