Short Description

The supplementary programme leading to a certificate enables students to take a second teaching subject (formal qualification to teach a subject), whereby the scope (60-76 credit points) varies depending on the teaching subject chosen. Students who are simultaneously enrolled on the Master’s Teacher Training Course for Technical Education may apply for the programme after successfully completing the third semester of the Master’s Teacher Training Course for Technical Education. Students can also apply to take the course later (also after completing the preparatory phase of teacher training). Students are admitted to the subjects provided that places are available. Students wishing to teach the subject of Physical Education must prove that they have passed the entrance examination specified in the Regulations for determining Aptitude for the Subject of Physical Education at Leibniz Universität Hannover. Students acquire the formal qualification to teach following examination by the recruiting educational authorities.
