Dual Study Master’s Degree
What you can expect
The practical assignments take place during the lecture-free periods in a number of divisions at AUDI AG, which we consolidate with each student. Here, you will work independently on projects, which allows you at an early stage to initiate and shape your career path.
Within the framework of the practical semester, you are given the opportunity to gather an international experience at one of our worldwide Group locations.
Depending on the field of study, the study can take place either at Technical University of Ingolstadt (TUI) or at the Technical University of Munich (TUM). The respective duration of the program is 2 years (TUI) or 2.5 (TUM) after which you would be granted with a Master degree of Science.
Offered fields of study
- Completed a Bachelor’s degree that meets the admission's requirements of the university
- Initial practical experience as part of academic internships or a graduation thesis in the industry
- Fascination with automobiles
- Interest in new technologies and trends

The most important questions answered right away
In addition to your completed online application, we require evidence of your educational history so that we can assess your eligibility. This should include your Abitur certificate (A level certificate/high school diploma) and a statement of your previous academic achievements, among others. A covering letter and a CV would also be helpful.
You can scan these documents and attach them to your application as files in the ‘Attachments’ section (preferably in PDF or JPG format).
We are also happy to give you the option of stating a second preference. If you are interested in more than one degree course, we will assess your application for both courses.
After you have submitted your written application to us, you will be invited to take a vocational aptitude test. Please complete this within 14 days.
We will then review all the applications and look at the results of the vocational aptitude tests.
All the applicants who have impressed us will be invited to attend our assessment centre approximately two weeks after the end of the application period.
Each year we offer 24 places which are divided between Audi dual bachelor’s and master’s degrees and between the respective degree courses (as a rule, two to four places are available per course).
The degree courses offered are continuously reviewed and adjusted to the requirements of AUDI AG. Studying at another university is therefore unfortunately not possible.
Yes, as soon as you have secured your place on the dual-degree course with Audi, your second step must be to enrol at the university. You must enrol before you can start your degree programme.
You will gain your practical work experience at Audi during the times when there are no lectures (semester vacations, practical semester, bachelor thesis). You can undertake your practical assignments in Ingolstadt or in Neckarsulm. You are free to choose your practical assignments and are welcome to match these to your interests – always provided, of course, that jobs are available for you in your chosen department. We also recommend that you look at as many different business units of the company as possible.
In your practical assignments you can take responsibility and implement projects independently. An assignment abroad is also possible.
In many cases, our dual students are also ultimately employed in one of the departments in which they have completed one of their practical assignments.
All students who successfully complete their dual-degree course within the standard study time are guaranteed a job with us.
You will receive financial funding from us every month irrespective of whether you are studying at the university or whether you are currently doing practical work experience with us in the factory. The payment is the same for all dual students; we do not differentiate between degree courses. The amount of financial support is determined by the percentage of the basic monthly pay of salary scale 7 of the collective wage agreement of the metal and electrical industry in Baden-Württemberg (available online). It is:
1st Audi dual training year: 37%
2nd Audi dual training year: 39%
3rd Audi dual training year: 42%
