Sports and Sport-Science
The semester abroad is designed for Bachelor students who are enrolled at a college or university. The following article describes in detail the requirements for enrollment, the structure of the sport and sports science studies, professional prospects, and the Upskill Study program.
In your sports studies, you will learn basic knowledge in the natural sciences, social sciences, and sports sciences. Your competence will also expand in the fields of medicine and research methods. Another central aspect is the work on our own research projects, which must be carried out and evaluated independently. In sports practice, the basics of sports are introduced and deepened. Due to its theoretical and practical design, sports studies are very varied and exciting.
Requirements for Matriculation
To be admitted to study sports, you must pass a sports aptitude test. The candidates are tested for technical and tactical skills and abilities in various individual and team sports. The documents can only be submitted for application after passing the sport aptitude test. The date of the aptitude test varies from university to university and state to state. As soon as the selection process has been carried out by the university, you will receive a letter of admission with which you can enroll. It is important to look for the deadlines set by the university. These can be found on the notification of admission.
Where can I study Sports Science in Germany?
The sports science course can be taken throughout Germany. In the far north in Kiel, in the city of poets and thinkers Leipzig, at Lake Constance or in Bochum in North Rhine-Westphalia. The Bachelor's program is offered at numerous universities. However, the prerequisite for this is to pass a sport aptitude test that is quite a challenge. In addition to the practical suitability for sports, it is also helpful to have already gained experience in the sport. In independent practice or as a trainer or instructor. The practical part is a big advantage of the study of sports science, which makes the theoretical background of movements, anatomical facts, or sport psychology theories somewhat easier. If you decide to study sports science, you can assume that the collected understanding of sports is very broad at the end of your studies. Further information on sport studies can be found on the Internet.
