DUAL DEGREE EXPLAINED
How it works

From day one you will work with
professional software developers
on real projects.

Similar to cooperative study programs offered by many companies, our curriculum combines practical training with a university education. Starting from day one, you will work on real projects alongside professional software developers. Parallel to your training on-the-job you will pursue a bachelor’s degree in computer science or business informatics at FernUniversität Hagen.

The time split between work and study is 50 / 50 at 20 hours weekly for each activity. Everything  will take place at our HQ so you don’t have to commute between uni and work like you would have to in many other dual study programs. For your university curriculum you will receive an individual top-class coaching from the Young Business School in Heidelberg (ybs.de) which has over 15 years of experience in coaching students at FernUniversität Hagen.

This includes all administrative tasks related to your university like signing up for courses and exams. Ask your student friends how much time they spend on paperwork. You will also have the chance to get in touch with like-minded students from Germany and beyond at periodic intensive learning weeks in Heidelberg. During your time at P&T, we pay your university tuition and Young Business School coaching fees. On top of that, you will receive a salary of 800 € monthly. As you make progress through the program your salary will increase dynamically.

BENEFITS
Why it’s better than other cooperative programs
“Real” University Degree

The majority of cooperative study programs is offered by so-called job academies (“Berufsakademien”). Degrees from these academies are widely regarded as lesser-valued than university degrees and can lead to problems for students who wish to pursue a master’s degree. With us, you study at FernUniversität Hagen, the biggest university in Germany with more than 70.000 students and internationally recognized degrees.

Individual Coaching

You can focus on the important things. We take care of all the rest. Our coaching program is designed to make sure you achieve the best results possible, both at work and in uni. Once you’re in, we’re all in the same boat.

Everything in one place

Study and work are aligned to an integrated program. There is no need to commute between job and uni. You have your co-students and your experienced colleagues always at hand if you need help.
