Admission requirements

a. Practical sport-related affinity and sporting aptitude: Evidence of at least 33 grade points in sports from three of the last four half years of the Abitur or relevant school qualifications at a comparable qualification level. Taking sports as an accelerated course in secondary school is sufficient to warrant a level of achievement of at least 30 grade points.

No aptitude test is required.

Alternatively: pass in a sports aptitude test of another university (not older than 2 years).

b. Fitness for sport: medical certificate (not older than 1 year) (www.spowi.hu-berlin.de/studium/info-fuer-studienbewerber/attest)

*One credit point (CP) equals a workload of 25 - 30 hours for preparation, follow-up and attendance at classes.

Course objectives

The objectives of Sport Sciences are to analyse movement and sport from a scientific perspective and to competently utilise them in a professional context. Graduates in Sports Sciences are awarded a Bachelor of Arts degree. Given the specific teacher training course components, students are qualified to proceed to master’s programmes for the different areas of teaching or jobs outside the education sector in sports-related areas (clubs, associations, administrations, the health sector etc.). To qualify for the teacher-training master’s programme, students need to combine this subject with a further teacher training-related subject and earn 30 or 40 CP in the teacher-training components in the bachelor’s course. The HU Sport Sciences course provides its students with the opportunity to contribute to research and development projects independently and at an early stage.

Why study Sport Science at HU?

Humboldt-Universität is home to the only Department of Sports Sciences in the Berlin region. The department lies in the heart of Berlin, in a modernised historical building with very well-equipped laboratories and a newly built sports research hall. It is one of the largest departments in Germany and the lecturers have close networks outside the university.

The department provides ideal conditions for athletes from different sports to successfully manage their dual career of athletic training and education in Sport Science.

The bachelor’s course teaches fundamental insights and skills in all sub-disciplines of Sport Science (the focus is not on students actually participating in sport; the corresponding abilities are a prerequisite). The department’s many international partnerships mean that students can study at a range of universities abroad, thanks to the Erasmus programme.

Teacher training is a special focus whose significance is underlined by a dedicated Chair for Didactics in P.E. Partnerships with schools enable students to scientifically analyse their future role not only in the seminar room, but also in live situations. This also gives them their first experiences to reflect on.
