Studying part-time at German universities

Studying part-time allows you to complete your studies while employed or if you have caretaking responsibilities. Part-time study can either be integrated into your work or completed while employed. Many distance learning programmes can also be completed part-time.

When studying part-time it is possible, in contrast to full-time study, to extend the standard period of study during which the required coursework must be completed. If you wish to combine study and work, part-time study can be a suitable alternative to full-time study.
