Teaching Profession

In the course of qualifying for a teaching degree in Bavaria, the subject of sports at the TU Munich can be selected as either a didactic subject or as a simple school subject. Hereby, an individual course of studies for each type of school presently exists, which the students can complete within seven to nine semesters along with the subsequent traineeship to qualify for their occupation as a teacher.
