Blog-MCiT Insights - Study without university entrance qualification

Because the MCI mentors motivated people: I study MCiT without A level!

"I want to go new ways. Open doors for the future", that is what I, Ramona, thought two years ago, while I was sitting at my desk, bored at work. “Achieve more, break out of my old job. Do something innovative. Something with media and digitization...”
I quickly came across the degree program Management, Communication & IT. That was exactly what I wanted to do: Study! But I had a big problem: no qualification for higher education…

That does not work? IT DOES! The MCI offers the solution for those who want to study without a university entrance qualification:
An exam - in German, Maths and English in addition to the regular admission procedure. This exam gave me access to the degree program Management, Communication & IT.

Meanwhile, I am in the 4th semester of the study program with a major in Media - and I want to point out again: I DO STUDY WITHOUT UNIVERSITY ENTRANCE QUALIFICATION!
Even during my studies my wish came true: instead of  the same old routine, I am now a part of exciting, creative and innovative projects! Right at the beginning of my studies I got the chance to moderate meetups of a Blockchain-Community and guide them through the evening. In addition to gaining experience as a speaker in front of a huge amount of people, I also met many experts in this field. These experiences allowed me to expand my personal network easily.
As part of our lectures, among many other things, I have learned how to program a website. That is why I got hold of a redesign project of an official institution. The course "Project Management" which took place in the third semester, helped me a lot for instance. I can use my knowledge - and believe me, that is a lot! - with this project as well.

In my biggest project, I am working on a company structure - from a technical, innovative idea with patent application to a successful company. To realize this project, I apply all the MCiT know-how from A to Z. If I have any questions, I can always contact experts at the MCI, so I am well prepared for any challenge!

You also want a change? Away from boring routine activities to exciting projects? Not only participating in, but contributing to the digital transformation in science?
