Innovation

The development of innovative concepts is our answer to future requirements in teaching and research.

Rethinking education

We want to teach our students the core competences of tomorrow, paving the way for a successful future career.

Our study concept helps students learn from the very beginning to act proactively in the acquisition and management of knowledge and to work in interdisciplinary teams.

We are convinced that sustainable learning is only possible if there is enough room for experimentation and critical thinking. That’s why we have completely restructured the classic course of study!

Competence-Oriented Research and Education (CORE) has been the decisive underlying principle, which was awarded with the Genius Loci Award for Teaching Excellence in 2018.

The educational model developed  by the SRH is centered on active and independent learning based on the following building blocks:

  • Optimal teaching and learning conditions
  • Continuous quality assurance
  • Lasting learning success
  • A focus on skills
  • Instructors as learning coaches
  • Five-week blocks

The principle represents a response to new educational and market challenges and offers students an innovative teaching and learning concept that provides them with individual and forward-looking support in their personal development and skills acquisition.

Competence Oriented Research and Education (The CORE Principle) was awarded the Genius Loci Prize for excellent teaching, makes it possible: we were able to switch to digital teaching, learning and examination formats at very short notice at the very beginning of the Corona pandemic.

Here you learn step by step

We believe that sustainable learning is only possible if there is enough space for experimentation, games and critical thinking. That is why we have completely restructured the classical course of studies.

  • You will work on practical tasks in small teams over 5-week blocks
    Instead of losing the overview in between lots of subjects, you completely draw your attention to a maximum of two subjects that are taught in parallell during a block of 5 weeks.
  • You will then take an exam on the subject matter of the previous weeks
    Due to the time frame of our study model, you will no longer have to deal with crowded exam weeks. With a large pool of possible examination forms (from the typical exam up to a learning diary) you can demonstrate your skills in the way that is the most well-suited to the competences that are relevant for the subject in question.
  • You will receive continuous performance feedback throughout your entire studies
    We guide you on a professional, personal and organisational level throughout your studies. From the first day onwards, you will have qualified mentors by your side. In addition, you will get individual coaching and competent advice from our Career Service.
  • You will receive all-round support from your lecturer
    At SRH we do not practice pure frontal teaching only. Instead, our teachers will become individual coaches for you. You will not only acquire expertise and methods but also improve your personal and social competences on a regular basis.
