Apprenticeship and dual studies at GSI


We are pleased to announce that this year ten apprentices have successfully completed their training at GSI.

Special thanks go to our trainers who accompanied and supported the apprentices during their training.

We wish our graduates all the best for their future endeavors and are confident that they will continue to succeed on their life journey.

The apprenticeships start every year after the Hessian summer vacations.


We offer the following events for our apprentices:

The dual study at GSI

In addition to the usual apprenticeship, GSI also offers the possibility to combine a study with a job in our specialized departments. This career path gained increasing popularity in recent years, as the advantages of a practical apprenticeship can be combined with an academic degree.

GSI has so-called cooperation agreements with several universities of applied sciences about practice-integrated study courses. This means that students are supervised at GSI during the lecture-free period and partly work on their own projects, while the theory is regularly taught at the universities of applied sciences during the lecture period.

Cooperation agreements exist for the following study programs:


Baden-Wuerttemberg Cooperative State University:

  • Bachelor of Science (B. Sc.) Occupational Safety (German: Bachelor of Science (B. Sc.) Arbeitssicherheit)
  • Bachelor of Science (B. Sc.) Radiation Protection (German) Bachelor of Science (B. Sc.) Strahlenschutz

Darmstadt University of Applied Sciences:

Hochschule Worms University of Applied Sciences:

Technische Hochschule Mittelhessen - University of Applied Sciences:
