In order to put together a successful application, the first thing you must do is carefully consider your professional ambitions. When you are certain you have obtained sufficient information about the occupation in which you wish to be trained – either through your school, the employment agency or other sources – and your choice corresponds to your personal abilities, inclinations and interests, then you are one important step closer to your goal.
In addition to demonstrating general interest in your prospective occupation, it is naturally helpful if your academic performance at school and/or subject focus correspond to the position for which you are applying. We expect candidates to have achieved very good final marks on their secondary-school certificate (Hauptschule (type 10 B), Realschule , Berufsschule (vocational school) or Abitur (general university entrance qualification)).
For those who haven't yet decided on a occupation, here are two more tips:
beroobi – A Project of Networked Schools [de]
Girls' Day – Future Day for Girls [de]
There are also several academic projects at the University of Münster which can help you further. The online platform www.mathe4job.de not only provides information about training programmes for certain occupations at the University of Münster, but also gives you the chance to assess your strengths and weaknesses with regard to mathematical competence.
As a vocational trainee, you will receive intensive and target-oriented instruction by qualified and committed trainers in order to prepare you for your future career. Your training will take place in an fascinating and challenging work environment at one of the largest and most historically rich universities in Germany.
