With their close linking of academic theory and professional practice, work-study degree courses are a popular choice. More and more companies are participating in work-study courses in order to recruit managers with a high level of practical experience at an early stage. Weihenstephan-Triesdorf University of Applied Sciences places great value on practical relevance, with an intense focus on all sector-specific activities. This is why the university has offered the a work-study option for the Nutrition and Food Supply Management bachelor's degree programme since autumn 2013.
The course with intensive practical work (Studium mit vertiefter Praxis) allows you to gain practical experience with a cooperating company during breaks and in the practical semester. These practical activities focus on the later field of employment for the work-study course graduates. The work-study course students also work on company-specific issues in projects or as part of their bachelor's dissertations. A vocational qualification is not part of the course.
The course with intensive practical work corresponds to the regular Nutrition and Food Supply Management bachelor's programme in terms of content and timing. Those interested in the work-study course can apply to companies in the nutrition and food supply management sector during the foundation course. The university will help with this.
The first practical experience should be gained as early as the summer semester break following the second study semester. In order to join the study programme with intensive practical work, the first practical session should take place after the fourth study semester at the latest. Agreements should be handed in no later than eight weeks before the start of each practical session. It is possible to enter a working relationship with the relevant company once your studies end.
