Be a professional nurse with vocational training

Get hands-on training at a German hospital and study at a vocational school in Germany with the Dual Vocational Training Program.

Entering the workforce in Germany doesn’t only mean you have to pursue the conventional pathway of graduating from a university.

The Dual Vocational Training (DVT) program is an apprenticeship program that allows you to decide the type of jobs you are interested in beforehand so that you can get on-the-job training with an organization from the start.

You’ll be working at a German hospital three to four days a week. Here, you’ll learn industry-specific skills, solve real-life industry problems, and develop soft skills needed to thrive in your careers.

For one or two days weekly, you’ll attend classes at a vocational school. You’ll learn theoretical knowledge needed in your relevant job roles which you can quickly put to practice at work.

Additional information

With Germany’s aging population, the demand for medical care professionals, particularly nurses, is growing. This is why many hospitals, nursing homes, and other care providers are turning to recruit overseas talents to help fill the gap.

In this pathway, you’ll spend 3 years in training, where you learn and practice general nursing in the first 2 years, and have the option to continue training to be a general nurse, or specialize in geriatrics or pediatrics in their final year.

Hear from some of our students

This one whole year of learning German, meeting new people from all around the world and now studying in one of the most prestigious universities in Germany have been nothing short of life-changing and eye-opening.

Living here has truly been an eye-opening experience, and I've learnt so much from it. From managing my finances to making sure I do my grocery shopping before all the stores close on Sunday. But that only scratches the surface of it all; you learn things that simply cannot be taught, and you do make some incredible memories along the way!
Vanessa, alumni of MCKL A Level, studying in Philipps University of Marburg, Germany
Looking for just a German course, I've received instead much more from German Educare, such as help with the university application process and even the arrangement of accommodation during my stay in Germany while I continued with my German lessons. Being in Germany has helped me step out of my comfort zone, cultivate independence and making many new friends.
