Distance learning at German universities

Distance learning is an alternative primarily intended for those whose personal circumstances prevent them from studying full-time. Distance learning enables you to study without being tied to a specific location; these programmes consist primarily of independent study.

Distance learning – studying at home

Distance learning programmes incorporate various forms of virtual learning, combined with formal instruction. During your distance learning programme your teaching and learning materials will be sent directly to you, either as a printed version or online. Your progress will usually be monitored through assignments that you will send in to us, and through written exams.
