Types of study programmes

There are many types of study programmes in German vocational education. The study programmes vary, for example, in terms of their admission requirements. Most study programmes are vocational and only prepare students for a certain profession, they do not prepare students for further study in higher education. That’s why we call them vocational education programmes.
