Admission requirements, evidence required on enrolment

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. Alternatively: pass in a university sports aptitude test (no older than 2 years).

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

No aptitude test is required.

Course objectives

The bachelor’s course in Sport Science aims to provide students with a broad and integrated knowledge base and understanding of the subject of Sports Sciences. Students will acquire a critical understanding of key theories, principles and methodology of the subject, with a particular focus on the field of ‘Sport, Movement and Education’. The objective of the course is to train experts in the field of Sport, Movement and Education who can develop, plan, perform, analyse and evaluate sports and movement activities in a range of educationally-related social settings. Graduates can go on to work in in organisations that offer fitness-related educational activities or use sport and movement as a medium for communicating educational content (e.g. clubs, associations, Olympic training centres, health insurance schemes, research institutes, companies, schools, nurseries etc.). The course enables its students to contribute to research and development projects at an early stage.
Another primary goal of the course is to qualify students to progress on to a master’s course in Sport Science.

Why study Sport Science at HU?

Humboldt-Universität is home to the only Department of Sport Sciences in the Berlin region. The department lies in the heart of the German capital in 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 Sports Sciences. The bachelor’s course teaches fundamental insights and skills in all sub-disciplines of Sports Sciences (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. In the in-depth modules, the course offers the opportunity to choose between differentiated and individual focal areas in the fields of culture, health and performance relating to Sport Science.
