Dual study in Hamburg

The dual study program is a special form of study that combines theoretical and practical training in one course. Here, theory phases at a university or university of cooperative education alternate with practical phases in the company.

The advantage of dual studies is that students gain practical experience and can apply their knowledge directly in practice. In addition, the close cooperation with the company gives them a good chance of being taken on after graduation.

The dual study program is particularly popular with companies because it gives them the opportunity to tie junior staff directly to the company and train them specifically to meet the company's needs. Most companies also offer their dual students remuneration and coverage of tuition fees.

The dual study program is particularly suitable for prospective students who want practical training and would like to obtain an academic degree at the same time. However, it is also a demanding form of study, as students must perform both in the company and at the university.

Hamburg is an excellent location to look for dual degree programs because of its many universities and companies. Here are some examples of dual study programs in Hamburg:

Medical studies at private universities in Hamburg

For many people, studying medicine is a dream that often seems unattainable due to the numerus clausus at state universities. An alternative to this are private universities, which do not base the suitability of an applicant on the grade point average. One example is the Medical School Hamburg (MSH), which offers a degree program in human medicine.

Access requirements

The admission requirements for studying at MSH are similar to those at state universities. A university entrance qualification such as the Abitur is required. In addition, an aptitude test must be passed. The selection procedure consists of two parts: a written test and an interview with an integrated case study.

Study contents and course of studies

The medical program at MSH lasts a total of six years and is divided into three sections. In the first section, basic medical subjects such as anatomy, biochemistry and physiology are taught, as well as an internship in nursing. The clinical phase follows in the second section, where interdisciplinary and specialized knowledge is taught. At the same time, practical training begins at partner clinics, which focuses on interdisciplinary thinking and dealing with patients. The third phase is the practical year in the eleventh and twelfth semesters. Here, students undergo practical training in surgery, internal medicine and a department of their choice, while continuing to learn about everyday hospital life at the partner hospital or another licensed hospital.

Costs

The cost of studying medicine at private universities can be very high. At MSH, tuition fees currently start at 1,500 euros per month. Apart from scholarships, the financing of studies must be well thought out.

Alternative: Physician Assistance

An alternative to studying medicine is the Physician Assistance program offered at the Carl Remigius Medical School in Hamburg. This is a bachelor's degree program that prepares students for work as a physician assistant or in other medical professions, or provides further education.

The part-time course of study comprises six semesters and currently costs from 525 euros per month. The admission requirements are similar to those for medical studies at MSH. Here, too, a university entrance qualification is required and a selection procedure is carried out.
