Dual study programme:
In line with the dual training system, a university study programme with a fixed integrated practice module at a company is called a dual study programme. They are distinct from “classic” study programmes in that they comprise more extensive practical elements, which may vary depending on the study course and university.
Parallel work/study course:
This is a dual study programme where the student is employed by a company for the entire duration of the training programme, and obtain an academic degree at the same time.
Alex, Simon and Cynthia work full-time and study at the same time at the Leibniz University for Applied Sciences and Arts. But the other tertiary education facilities in Hannover also
dual study and parallel work/study programmes.
In this film, the three describe how they manage to keep up with their studies in addition to their work.
