Part-time study

When can I study part-time?

If you are unable to complete a normal course of study "for important reasons", for example if you are

take care of your children or other family members,
work part-time,
work in university committees,
you are involved in activities outside the university
you are restricted due to illness or disability
you play high-performance sports, or
you are involved in national musical or artistic activities.

What are the benefits of part-time study?

Part-time studies change the counting of semesters: If you have studied part-time for two years, you will still only receive credit for two semesters.

The advantage is that your degree certificate will show the number of semesters, not just the duration of your studies.

What is the procedure for part-time studies?

A part-time study must be applied for at the examination board. The application (last page of the framework regulations) must be submitted by July 15 for the following winter semester. For the summer semester, the deadline is January 15.

You can apply for it in the Bachelor's degree from your third semester for two semesters at a time. In the Master's program, you can apply from the first semester. During these two semesters, you will take courses worth a maximum of 30 credits. To do this, you must draw up a course plan with your advisor. Since you can only complete one semester in two part-time semesters, they count together as one semester.
If you want to study part-time for longer, you must submit a new application each year.
