Department of Social Policy and Social Security Studies

Cooperation Partner German Social Accident Insurance (DGUV)

The German Social Accident Insurance (DGUV) provides its members (commercial social accident insurance institutions and public-sector accident insurance institutions) with a range of study opportunities tailored to their needs; this as a means of access to the senior, non-technical service. The private, state-recognized university of the statutory accident insurance institutions, Bad Hersfeld, and, on the basis of a cooperation agreement, the Department of Social Policy and Social Security of the state university of Bonn-Rhein-Sieg, Hennef, are active in this field.

In this regard, both universities have jointly designed a 6-semester dual BA course in "Social Insurance, Focus on Accident Insurance". In close cooperation, they each offer this course of study independently at their universities.

The BA program at Bonn-Rhein-Sieg University of Applied Sciences is accredited by the Foundation for International Business Administration Accreditation (FIBAA).

The program starts once a year in both universities in the winter semester (beginning of September).

The students have signed a work and study contract with the accident insurance institutions (commercial employers' liability insurance associations and public-sector accident insurance institutions) in advance and then come to study at one of the universities mentioned. The DGUV coordinates and regulates the assignment of future students to the above-mentioned universities. The aim here is to determine the future place of study at a very early stage in the interests of the future students; ideally at the time when the work and study contract is signed.
