  • Professionals without a university entrance qualif

    Preparation course for a direct and distance-learning degree program at Anhalt University with or without a university entrance qualification

    You work as a skilled worker, master craftsman, or technician in a company in an engineering or technology field that will soon need one more more engineers, and you would like to fill one of these positions?

    You want to and can invest the necessary time in a distance-learning program in addition to your job?

    Then the preparation course is right for you.

    The preparation course is designed especially for professionals who would like to be qualified to apply for a practical, part-time, distance-learning engineering degree program at Anhalt University.  In the preparation course, prospective students without a university entrance qualification will receive targeted preparation for the assessment exam and for distance-learning degree programs.

    For interested professionals who already have a university entrance qualification such as master craftsmen, technicians, and those with an Abitur, the course is perfect for refreshing and deepening knowledge of math and physics to prepare for the challenging distance-learning program.

    The focus of the course is on math, physics, chemistry, and organizing studies.

     

    Objective: Obtaining a university entrance qualification by passing the assessment exam, intensive preparation for an engineering degree program

    Course requirements: Middle secondary school (Realschule) leaving certificate or upper secondary school leaving certificate (Abitur) with completed vocational training, secondary school was completed several or many years ago, two years of professional experience, master craftsman, technician, and economists with technical vocational training
