Your course content

UX, UI and Coding in companies

In the B.Sc. Web Development programme, you learn to conceptualise, design and develop real, digital products and services. Interaction design, UX design, usability engineering, scripting languages, business informatics and social media are just as much part of the curriculum as hardware programming, communication strategy and agile project management. Based on these modules, you develop digital experiences, online platforms, hardware projects, virtual spaces and games.

The focus is exclusively on sustainable projects that have a sustainable impact across society with large companies, NGOs, institutes, universities or start-ups.

You learn how to coordinate real projects, work in teams with content experts, communication designers and marketing experts, advise clients, derive concepts from ideas and finally design and technically implement them. Our students already work on assignments for clients from all over the world during their studies - an ideal preparation for a professional career start.

You already have previous experience, e.g. as a trained media designer, thanks to previous university studies or you work as a freelance web developer or designer? Or are you already enrolled in the full-time B.Sc. Development programme at the Berlin School of Design and Communication? Then you have the opportunity to switch to the dual programme. In the specific dual modules you acquire in-depth knowledge and credits for your work in your partner company (approx. 2.5 days per week, 5 ECTS per semester).

What is a dual study programme?

A dual study programme combines an academic education with relevant work experience. Even though a lot of full-time programmes offer work experience as well, e.g. as internships, dual programmes contain more practical periods. Students work a certain amount of hours per week in a partner company while joining lectures during the remaining time. This way they get to apply the newly-acquired knowledge straight away and become an integral part of the partner company. As most companies also either pay a training salary or pay the tuition fees, students benefit from a higher degree of financial security.

Paid work & study at the same time!

There are different models for dual study programmes in Germany: our B.Sc. Web Development | dual is a so-called "practice-integrated dual study programme".

As a student, you can replace certain modules during your lecture period with practical work for a company. This gives you the opportunity to work for up to 18.5 hours per week and earn ECTS credit points for your studies at the same time!

You need a company based in the digital media industry that offers you a job in the field of web development. You document your activities in a written practical report. From a legal perspective, you retain the status of a full-time student, which is why the B.Sc. Web Development | dual is also suitable for non-EU citizens.

You negotiate the terms of your employment contract directly with the company. The salary level is not related to our tuition fees - these are independently transferred to SRH Berlin University of Applied Sciences.

Our students often start the B.Sc. Web Development course full-time and later switch to the dual study model, e.g. in the 3rd or 4th semester, please note that the search for partner companies is usually done by you independently.

We are happy to provide support by individual arrangement, e.g. through letters of recommendation from professors, provided that you have demonstrated active participation in your studies and good academic performance as a student in the first semesters.
