Professional Education and Economics Pedagogy

Professional education and economics pedagogy enables students to gain an insight into the work at vocational schools early in their studies. For this purpose, vocational didactic and pedagogical contents are taught in two modules, which can already be tested in practice in a four-week practical training course - the "vocational practical studies". The examination regulations regulate which courses are taken in the respective modules and which study and examination credits must be earned.


It is mandatory to complete an internship/school placement (School-practical studies or Professional-practical studies) during the Bachelor’s Degree Technical Educations. Admission to the Master’s Degree Teacher Education for vocational schools requires proof of practical school experience.

Students who do not wish to continue studying for the Master’s degree, may pass their internship at a business instead of a school.

Further Information about internships and school placements may be found in the Internship Regulations of the Bachelor’s Degree Technical Education.

Both the school placements and internships are being organised and supervised by the Institute of Vocational Education and Adult Education (IfBE- Institut für Berufspädagogik und Erwachsenenbildung).
