Teacher training at TU Kaiserslautern
TU Kaiserslautern offers various programmes that lead to the Bachelor and Master of Education degree.
The degrees are valid for careers at the following types of schools:
- Vocational school
- Gymnasium (secondary school)
- Realschule Plus(secondary school)
In the Gymnasium and Realschule Plus programmes, you have the option of deciding during the course which type of school you prefer. However, the teacher training for a position at a vocational school requires a decision at the time of the application. Teacher training courses require the applicant to specify two subjects in the application. You will be automatically enrolled in the Faculty of Educational Sciences.
When selecting your subjects, ensure the desired combination is in fact possible. More detailed information about possible subject combinations is provided in the course descriptions (here).
If the subject combination you desire is not offered in its entirety at TU Kaiserslautern, you may check to see if there is an option to study in the University Association Southwest. In this case, the second subject may be studied at one of the partner universities where it is offered.
The Teacher Training Centre (Zentrum für Lehrerbildung, ZfL) provides support for the teacher training programmes at TU Kaiserslautern. General information regarding the structure of the teacher training programmes as well as individual guidance prior to and during your studies is available from the Centre.
