Dual courses of study

Are you still wondering whether to study or start working straight away? An academic degree is not practical enough for you, but vocational training does not teach enough theory? The FrankfurtRheinMain (FRM) region offers a dual study pathway. Dual students attend a university or vocational college to learn theoretical skills, but they also experience the practical aspects of their profession during hands-on training periods. 

The dual pathway is combination of theoretical and practical training that is unique in the world. Rather than spending all their time in lectures, dual students also apply the learned skills in a company. They get first-hand insights into authentic working environments. Many companies in FRM are looking for motivated dual students. 


You need a university entrance qualification to enrol in a dual course of study. Click here to find out more as a dual student, you will spend part of your course at your university. The second part is spent in a company, where you will learn the practical aspects of your chosen profession. 


A dual course of study will grant you two qualifications at once: a certificate of completed vocational training and a bachelor’s degree. In certain cases, students who already have a bachelor’s degree can complete their master’s degree as part of a dual course. For more information, visit the website Duales Studium in Hessen.
