The CORE Principle – Our study concept!
We support you personally and continuously in achieving your goals. Based on our proven CORE principle, we have aligned all learning objectives, forms of examination, teaching and learning methods for you, in order to make learning as fun and successful as possible.
We believe that sustainable learning is only possible if there is enough space for experimentation, games and critical thinking. That is why we have completely restructured the classical course of studies.
- You will work on practical tasks in small teams over 5-week blocks
Instead of losing the overview in between lots of subjects, you completely draw your attention to a maximum of two subjects that are taught in parallell during a block of 5 weeks.
- You will then take an exam on the subject matter of the previous weeks
Due to the time frame of our study model, you will no longer have to deal with crowded exam weeks. With a large pool of possible examination forms (from the typical exam up to a learning diary) you can demonstrate your skills in the way that is the most well-suited to the competences that are relevant for the subject in question.
- You will receive continuous performance feedback throughout your entire studies
We guide you on a professional, personal and organisational level throughout your studies. From the first day onwards, you will have qualified mentors by your side. In addition, you will get individual coaching and competent advice from our Career Service.
- You will receive all-round support from your lecturers
At SRH we do not practice pure frontal teaching only. Instead, our teachers will become individual coaches for you. You will not only acquire expertise and methods but also improve your personal and social competences on a regular basis.
- You will have time to deepen your knowledge in between each block, to retake exams or to gain practical experience
Learning at eye level
Pure frontal teaching does not exist in our classrooms. Instead, our instructors become individual learning coaches for you. Together, you will not only acquire specialist knowledge, but also hone your soft and hard skills. In order to achieve this, we rely on direct communication.
No fear of making mistakes
Trying out is allowed here! Even welcomed, since we rely on experience-based learning. It's not always about right or wrong, above all it's about trying things out and getting to know each other. At SRH, you don't study for the professor or the examinations office, but primarily for your own projects and your whole (professional) life.
Learning for the real world
You don't have to do countless internships after you graduate. Practical teamwork on real projects with partners from the real world will prepare you optimally for the professional world. At the same time, you will develop social skills such as the ability to accept criticism, to think outside the box and to solve problems creatively. These are exactly the skills that employers expect from their employees today.
In addition, you will not only have a certificate in your hand, but also project references from real world partners, that you can provide alongside your job applications. AND: you'll know where your personal strengths lie.
We work according to the SRH Constructive Alignment.
We ask ourselves:
- Which competences do our alumni need on the job?
- Through which form of examination can they best demonstrate these abilities?
- How must lessons be designed so that students are well prepared for this examination?
This is why we don't rely only on classical examination forms such as written exams or presentations. In total, there are about thirty different examination forms to choose from.
For example: portfolio | presentation | project work | case work | scientific poster | report...
... and many others
