Study here in Saxony

Leipzig

Dual study at private universities in Saxony

The dual study programme is also becoming increasingly popular among students and companies in Saxony. This is a study model in which the theoretical phases at the university alternate with practical assignments in companies.

The students have the opportunity to apply their newly acquired knowledge directly in practice and to deepen questions and tasks from their everyday working life in the lectures. The most obvious advantage of this form of study is that students gain both theoretical knowledge and practical experience, which creates the best conditions for a successful takeover by the training company or a job entry.

Another advantage is that the costs of the studies are covered by the training company and the practical work is remunerated, which provides financial relief for the students during the training.

In Saxony, dual study programmes at private universities are offered primarily by Dresden International University, SRH Dresden School of Management and IU International University of Applied Sciences.

Teaching profession - the alternatives at private universities in Saxony

For the teaching profession, there are only a few private universities that offer this study programme and unfortunately none of them are located in Saxony. However, there are several other degree programmes in the field of education that are also offered by private universities in Saxony.

An important difference between teacher training and pedagogy is that the teacher training programme is specifically designed to prepare students for the teaching profession. In addition to pedagogical content, it also includes subject didactic and practical school elements. Pedagogy, on the other hand, is a broader field of study that deals with general pedagogical theories, methods and approaches.

Pedagogy can be an alternative to teacher training and opens up a broad occupational field that goes beyond teaching and, depending on the degree programme, is not specifically designed for the teaching profession. Graduates of a pedagogical degree programme can, for example, work in educational counselling, youth and adult education or in personnel and organisational development.

The IU International University of Applied Sciences, for example, offers degree programmes in education and adult education by distance learning, which provides students with flexible learning opportunities. DIPLOMA University of Applied Sciences, on the other hand, offers the degree programme in Special Education and Inclusive Education, which prepares students for a career in, for example, early intervention, child and adolescent psychiatry, working with people with disabilities or in rehabilitation clinics, both as a campus study programme in Leipzig and as a distance learning programme.

In addition, both universities offer the B.A. Childhood Education programme - the IU as a dual or distance learning programme, the DIPLOMA as a campus study programme.

Medical studies at private universities in Saxony

Although medical studies at private universities in Saxony do not offer a direct opportunity to graduate as a doctor, there are interesting alternative courses, especially at Dresden International University.

Here, students can choose, for example, the B.Sc. Emergency Paramedic, B.Sc. Treatment Assistant or B.Sc. Prevention, Therapy and Rehabilitation Sciences programmes.

In addition, the IU International University of Applied Sciences offers the B.Sc. Physician Assistant in distance learning. The Physician Assistant differs from medical studies in that it qualifies as a medical assistant and enables independent medical and organisational tasks under the supervision of doctors, but not independent medical work.
