Students report

At the end of their studies, each graduate shines through the completed training profession, the
successfully completed studies at one of the best universities in Northern Germany, a good
network among the students and almost two years of relevant work experience in the company.

motivation, ambition, and joy in learning, in my opinion, does not need to be
be emphasized.

Right at the beginning of the first theory phase, one is struck by the “familiar” way the lecturers treat the
students. The lectures take place in small groups and therefore have a very pleasant atmosphere.
pleasant atmosphere.
There is also a friendly atmosphere among the students themselves. Also to the other
students, too, and they do a lot of things together.

In my opinion, a dual course of study at the PHWT is the perfect combination of
theoretical knowledge and its practical application in the company. I really enjoyed the topics I was taught and felt very comfortable at the PHWT.
