Social professions: expanded access to studies at Leuphana

2022-12-16 Lüneburg. For the Bachelor's program "Social Work for Educators" at the Professional School of Leuphana University Lüneburg, there are now extended access options. Previously, only state-certified educators with at least three years of professional experience could apply. A new preparatory course now also opens up this study opportunity to social assistants, curative education nurses, occupational therapists and people with other relevant qualifications in the social field.

The course, which is mainly offered online, extends over two semesters and covers the topics of social history and the history of ideas in social work, introduction to pedagogy, and introduction to social and developmental psychology. A successfully completed preparatory course and proof of three years of professional experience create the prerequisite for application. Abitur or Fachhochschulreife are not always required.

Application is possible from now until December 31, 2022. The number of study places is limited.

Coordinator Mike Krzywik-Groß will answer questions about the course by e-mail at or by phone at +49.4131.677-7797.
