The first year is dedicated to general knowledge of the study of education. The second year is devoted to a first experience with the profession of teaching (interdisciplinary approaches, methods of doing research). The second two years, which also distinguish between nursery school and primary school, is primarily interested in building competencies in a wide range of disciplines within three areas of specialization: modern languages, science, visual arts and music.

The degree allows graduates to teach in either nursery schools or primary schools depending on the area of specialisation chosen. After having earned a degree in one of the two areas, the graduate may choose to proceed with a further year of study in the other area of study (details provided in the following pages). Moreover, by taking part in additional one-semester courses a graduate can acquire qualifications to work as a special education teacher.

In order to enrol for the Bachelor's degree, applicants must have either a five-year secondary school diploma or a four-year teacher-training diploma for primary schools teachers with 10 years of teaching experience.
