Studies as a civil servant; information on the Department of General Internal Administration (specialization in administrative informatics)

The Administrative Informatics program combines a modern university of applied sciences degree with a crisis-proof position in the public sector.


The course of study leading to the degree of "Diplom-Verwaltungsinformatiker (FH)" takes account of the public administration's need for junior staff in the field of ICT techniques and is intended to secure it in the long term.

The administration-specific course of study takes place at the Department of General Internal Administration of the Civil Service University in Hof. Computer science training, which forms the main focus of the course, is provided in cooperation with Hof University of Applied Sciences. Practical vocational training at the administration's computer centers rounds off the training.

This form of training provides an ideal combination: Well-founded knowledge in information technology and administration as well as an overview of the professional requirements of the administration. The close link between practice and theory optimally prepares students for their future careers in an apprenticeship that lasts only three years.

Approximately 60 students are recruited each year at the beginning of September. More information about the content and course of study, the hiring authorities and how to apply can be found on the Internet (see "Further links").


Recruitment requirements:

  • Unrestricted entrance qualification for universities of applied sciences, subject-linked entrance qualification for universities of applied sciences, general entrance qualification for universities of applied sciences or a level of education recognized as equivalent by the Bavarian State Ministry of Education and Cultural Affairs, Science and the Arts (e.g. master craftsman's examination and equivalent further vocational training examinations).
  • German nationality or the nationality of another member state of the European Union or the nationality of Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway or Switzerland (in the case of certain authorities, German nationality is a mandatory requirement for appointment as a civil servant; information on this can be obtained from the relevant appointing authority)
  • Age limit: 45 years of age not yet reached at the time of recruitment
  • an average grade of at least 3.0 in the subjects German, mathematics and English.

The study program initially requires the establishment of a civil service relationship with a Bavarian employer. This employer then assigns the civil servant to the university for study.

Interested students must therefore apply to one of the employers listed under "Application" on the website. It is permissible to apply to more than one of the authorities listed there. The employer will then inform the applicant about the further progress of the application process and register them for the recruitment test at the Bavarian State Office for Digitization, Broadband and Surveying. Please note the application deadlines listed on the website.


Please note the dates for the recruitment tests (see "Further links").


  • Students do not receive free accommodation during the specialized theoretical parts of their studies.
