Dual Study (Germany)
Taking three years to complete, our Dual Study Programmes combine theoretical study at a local university with a range of practical work within the company, helping you to develop a fantastic understanding of our business, as well as valuable skills.
Furthermore, while other students need to find a job during semester break, you will receive 30 days' holiday, as well as a monthly salary throughout the programme.
We offer one Dual Study Programme in Germany:
- Bachelor of Business Administration and Engineering (BAEE) in cooperation with the FH Giessen/Friedberg – at our site in Oberursel (near Frankfurt am Main)
What you'll learn
During the semester, you will be taught the relevant theory according to the curriculum of your university. You will then have opportunities to put your newly acquired knowledge into practice during structured placements at Rolls-Royce, allowing you to work on interesting and challenging real-life tasks alongside your study.
By the end of the programme, few people within the company will have experienced more aspects of Rolls-Royce than you, putting you in a strong position to develop your career with a successful global company.
Where can you do it?
How will you benefit:
All our apprentices are paid competitive salaries. It’s difficult to say exactly how much this will be because it varies according to role and location. Apprentices in Germany are paid on the basis of the tariff agreement relevant for their region.
You will also receive a range of other benefits, including at least 30 days’ holiday in Germany (excluding statutory days).
Training and development:
By the end of an apprenticeship with Rolls-Royce, you will have completed a range of different training activities, giving you the skills, experience and confidence you need to move into a full-time role. The precise nature of your training will depend on your particular apprenticeship, but it will generally break down into four elements:
First things first, it's important to learn the basics of your role as quickly as possible. We'll make sure you complete the necessary courses to do so, either on site or at an external training provider.
We'll also continue to provide a range of opportunities to develop your skills throughout your apprenticeship.
This could mean learning something technical – like how to use a piece of equipment or a particular software system – or it could mean improving on general business skills, such as presenting or communication.
There are few better ways of learning a particular profession than to just do it, immersing yourself in the kind of situations and tasks that will eventually become second nature.
At Rolls-Royce, you will be doing this from a very early stage in your apprenticeship, working alongside and learning from experienced professionals on a daily basis.
Studying for qualifications
Throughout your apprenticeship, you'll also attend college, vocational school or university on a part-time basis (usually on a day-release basis) to study for appropriate nationally recognised qualifications.
Guidance and support
While your apprenticeship will be hard work, we'll never expect you to do it all alone. Throughout your time on your programme, you will have constant access to the advice and encouragement of your training supervisor and line manager, as well as your colleagues.
Together, they will help you set your objectives, monitor your progress, understand tricky concepts and, ultimately, achieve your full potential.
Who are we looking for and what qualifications do you need?
We expect an above average Abitur, as well as good knowledge of the English language and Maths. An interest in socio-economic topics is also a prerequisite. Applicants need to be fluent in German as they will be enrolled at a German vocational school or university for the theoretical part of their training.
Please note that for the BAEE you also need to have completed a Technical Apprenticeship.
