Part-time study

Information on part-time studies

The Master's program is now also offered as a part-time program, in which only about half of the regular semester workload must be completed. This means that part-time study can be much more individualized with fewer exams per semester. Instead of about 20 contact hours per week in full-time studies, the workload in part-time studies is only about 10 semester hours per week. Since part-time study can be somewhat more complex than full-time study in terms of organizing the course of study, each student is provided with a study plan tailored to his or her personal situation.

 

Structure of part-time studies

The standard period of study for full-time studies is 3 semesters. For part-time studies, it is 6 semesters. The attendance phases of the lecture semesters take place together with the full-time students. This being said, students usually only have to spend one day per week at the university for part-time studies. Corresponding online courses supplement the attendance phase. The fifth semester is scheduled for the final thesis.
