Details about the study model and internship

You study in the part-time study model (extra-occupational), requiring you to attend a total of 5 block weekends per semester (Thursday to Monday), which allows you to combine your studies with your professional activities and your private requirements.

During the 7th semester, you may take part in a teaching internship (practical school studies) at a state-recognized health care school. If you are already working at a school during your studies, you can receive credit for the teaching internship which can shorten your studies in 7 semesters (3.5 years). You will successfully complete the teaching internship with a teaching sample. Please contact us at any time.


WORK-LIFE-STUDY-BALANCE A study for your demands

Have found your dream study course in social work and want to further qualifications, but are unsure about how to fit it in with your family and job commitments? Fear not!  Our health university offers a range of exciting bachelor's and master's programs which can be studied part time. At our university, we not only teach health, but we also live it and understand our responsibility to ensure a balance between work, life, and study for our students. We have block events once a month, so that families can attend together, and toddlers can crawl across the hallways at the university or join mom and dad in the lecture.

In addition to the excellent, very practical teaching, it was above all the study model that made it possible for me to reconcile children and studies.
Franziska Adler, Alumna

Alumni Portrait In conversation with our graduate and mother of three Franziska Adler

Certainly, it hasn't always been easy to combine family and studies. How did you cope with this challenge?

Of course, you had to set aside and take times when you devoted yourself exclusively to your studies. Of course, I also had to rely on the support of family and friends. With good time management and a healthy work ethic during attendance times, I was able to take big and small steps towards success.

To what extent was the SRH University of Health able to support you in this?

In addition to the excellent, very practical teaching, it was above all the study model that enabled me to reconcile children and studies. Due to the block weekends, there were many factors that simplified my everyday study routine. For example, it was no problem to come to the university with the children. I also found some peace and quiet in the breastfeeding room when I needed it. On the part of the lecturers, it was always possible - due to the very close and personal contact - to find a quick and uncomplicated solution to any problems that arose. They always had an open ear in this regard.

Do you think you would have successfully completed your studies without the opportunities that the SRH Health University offered you?

That is of course difficult to judge from today's perspective. Nevertheless, I believe that the part-time study model in particular, as well as certainly the full-time model in block form and the scheduling of the block weekends, were extremely practical, since it was thus possible to combine family life and the demands of the studies. In any case, I am convinced that without the opportunities it would have been very difficult to successfully complete my studies. The close proximity of the university to the Hofwiesenpark, with its playground, miniature golf course and numerous meadows for playing soccer, made it even easier for my husband to keep the children occupied during my lectures.

How would you rate the work-life balance during your studies?

Besides work, family and studies, it is of course not always easy to find time for sports or reading a book. Of course, there were stressful phases, especially during the exam period, which should not be concealed. All in all, however, I think that I was always able to find a balance between work and my studies and my private life during my time at university. This was due to the external factors set by the SRH University of Applied Health Sciences and my self-management, as well as my husband, who looked after our three children during lectures.
