The teaching degree at vocational schools at TU Darmstadt is made up of two interlinked courses :

  • first the Bachelor of Education course (6 semesters; professional subject), and
  • followed by the Master of Education course (4 semesters; general education subject / specialist science).
  • Methodology / Didactics andPractical phases complement the technical content of the subjects.

Only the completion of the Bachelor of Education and Master of Education is equivalent to the First State Examination in Hesse and is therefore an obligatory prerequisite for acceptance into preparatory service (legal clerkship) or school service.



Graduates of the Bachelor of Education degree program have employment opportunities in vocational educational institutions in the economy, in the field of vocational training sciences or on the open labor market.

Entry into the preparatory service (legal traineeship) for a teaching position at a vocational school, a vocational high school, a technical school, a technical college, a vocational school as well as in classes of the basic vocational training year and the vocational preparation year is only open to them after completing a postgraduate course Master of Education.

It is difficult to make predictions about the future need for teachers and their chances of being hired in the school service, as they depend on a large number of different factors. These include, for example, the demographic development, the chosen combination of subjects or type of school, political framework conditions, etc
