Teacher education at the University of Bayreuth.

We are pleased to hear you are interested in becoming a teacher. Teaching young people and accompanying them through a crucial phase in their lives can be as fun as it is rewarding, assuming you have the necessary skills and know-how.

The University of Bayreuth views the education of future teachers as a responsibility to society. We are up to the challenges with regard to educational policy and the responsibility that this entails. Our aim is to provide you with the best possible education, informed by teaching methodology, educational science, published studies, and the various subject areas. Our students gain valuable subject-related skills that enable them to make decisions and act responsibly and resolutely.

Subject areas to choose from in the teacher education programmes

The University of Bayreuth offers programmes that qualify graduates to teach the following subjects at a Gymnasium or a Realschule: biology, German, English, geography, history, computer science, mathematics, physics, sports, and economics.  In the programmes for teaching at vocational schools, metalworking as a main subject can be combined with the secondary subjects computer science, chemistry, German, English, mathematics, physics, or sports. "German as a Second Language" and "Performing Arts" are offered as supplementary subjects.

Close personal supervision

There are currently around 1,700 students enrolled in teacher education programmes at the University of Bayreuth - not many in comparison to Germany's larger universities. The size of the student body enables the University of Bayreuth to offer excellent individual supervision. The work environment in seminars and tutorials is especially focused. Students are taught in relatively small groups receive personal supervision from their instructors.  In addition, a programme advisor has been designated for each subject area in the teacher education programme. These programme advisors are responsible for coordinating the courses offered and answering any organizational questions you may have with regard to the teacher education programme.

The University of Bayreuth provides students enrolled in teacher education programmes with a range of opportunities, skills, and qualifications that go beyond the demands of the first state examination. On the Centre for Teacher Education’s homepage, you will find further details about the enrichment courses offered in the scope of the Quality Campaign for Teacher Education.

Studying individual modules

The University of Bayreuth provides all students with the opportunity to complete supplementary programmes in theatre education or teaching German as a foreign language.  You can also study individual modules to help meet your personal and professional goals. Students can select modules from our bachelor’s and master’s programmes, take the exam at the end, and earn credits and a certificate. Further details are available from the Student Administration Office. We have put together an overview of the individual modules that can be studied each semester. In addition, students of the University of Bayreuth can take course online via the Virtuelle Hochschule Bayern, which also offers a number of courses in English.
