What do we offer our students?

A practical, hands-on training

All courses take into account the practical application of knowledge in gerontological work environments. A quarter of all courses are even predominantly application-oriented. More than one third of the lecturers are partly or mainly practically active (e.g., as geriatricians, geriatric psychotherapists, psychologists in geriatric assessment).

An interdisciplinary approach

The ageing process is influenced by many factors. Lecturers from geriatrics, psychology and sociology of aging, nursing science, philosophy and law cover topics such as health management, quality assurance, palliative care and the demographic, legal, historical, socio-political,
cultural and ethical aspects of human ageing.

A part-time study programme

The programme offers the possibility to study while maintaining a full-time employment. The knowledge acquired in classes is immediately applicable in the workplace and directly enhances the quality of the services offered by the students’ employers.
