Requirements for enrollement
Integrated into practice
An employment contract template (start of contract period: usually August 1) and a current list of companies in the district of Siegen-Wittgenstein and beyond that offer dual study program options or have offered them in the past can be found online on the website of the IHK Siegen: www.ihk-siegen.de (in the section „Duales Studium“).
When actually enrolling at the registrar's office or the International Office, the employment contract concluded between the prospective student and the company must be submitted.
Structure of the degree program
Integrated into practice
Students are employed by a company from the very beginning. During the standard period of study of 7 semesters, they attend courses for their degree program during the lecture periods and spend practical phases in the company during the non-lecture periods. In parallel to their theoretical studies at the university, they work practically and go through training in the companies in order to achieve a duality between work in the company and scientific training.
Excerpts from the employment contract:
“…The parties assume that the student will work at a site of
the company for at least 3 years after successfully completing
the degree program. The company commits to offering the student
an employment contract under the employment conditions common
in the company that corresponds to the degree acquired. For
every year worked for the company, 1/3 of the loan paid out
shall be deemed repaid...”
“…The company shall grant the student an interest-free loan for the term of the degree program and shall pay out a monthly amount of 250.- € from this granted loan to the student…”

Organization of the degree program
Subject examination regulations/degree plans/module
Subject examination regulations (FPOs) define the basic structures of a degree program (e.g. admission requirements and contents to be studied). The current version of an FPO automatically applies to students when enrolling in the first semester of study. This means that, even if the FPO changes during the course of your studies, the original version in effect at the time of enrollment still applies (provided that said FPO does not expire).
The respective degree plan contains the recommended exemplary course of studies in the individual subjects and is part of an FPO.
Supplementary regulations and detailed information on each module to be studied can be found in the module handbooks (e.g. requirements for taking a written examination or information about the content of modules/courses, …).
The internship regulations define the conditions under which the compulsory or optional internships must be completed.
We recommend that, as a minimum, you take a look at the degree plan of your degree program before the start of the lecture period so that you know which modules are intended for the start of your studies.
