“Dual studies” is an educational system that combines the theoretical study with the practical application. Al-Quds University launched the Dual Studies in 2015 with funding from the German Government through GIZ. Dual Studies have been designed to contribute to raising the professional level of the Palestinian youth and providing good jobs for students after graduation. Moreover, it aims to bridge the gap between the academic educational outcomes and the needs and requirements of the Palestinian labor market. Dual studies is being implemented along the lines of the German experience which mainly depends on the integration of academic study and linking students in the work environment since the first day of enrolling to the specialty. All of which provides students with the opportunity to study at Al-Quds University as well as have the chance to practice the profession their studies suggest in one of the specialized Palestinian companies throughout the bachelor years. Dual Studies puts a priority to encourage the participation of women at the same level of male students.
