Shortened study programme for career changers with Bachelor's and Master's degrees   

=> Via Bridge Studies PLUS into primary school  

In order to attract more people to the primary school teaching profession, a shortened study programme for people with a Bachelor's and/or Master's degree will start at the Autonomous University of East Belgium (AHS) in September 2022. In addition, a second round of the admission procedure will take place in August for late applicants. From September 2022, the AHS will offer another bridge study programme, the so-called Brückenstudium PLUS. This new measure is aimed at all persons who have a Bachelor's and/or Master's degree - regardless of the field of study. "In view of the acute shortage of teachers, we must try to open up new target groups for the teaching profession. In doing so, it is important, on the one hand, to make the study programme as attractive as possible for potential candidates and, on the other hand, to maintain the necessary quality requirements," explains Education Minister Lydia Klinkenberg.
