Flexible study models and fees

Distance learning

Invest the smart way – with a study model that suits you.

Are you busy at work, do you have a family or projects that you want to take care of while studying? No problem! We help you reconcile everything that’s important to you. And if you realise you need more time during your studies, you can take a semester off or extend your studies or extend your studies/continuing education by up to 12 months – both completely free of charge.

You can find the exact amount of the tuition fees on the respective programme page under Tuition Fees.

As unique as you are: Our full and part-time programmes

Depending on your personal or professional situation, full-time study is not always easy to manage. That's why we have also developed part-time programmes for all our study programmes that offer flexible and longer durations. This way, you can study alongside your job or during your time off, whether at home or abroad. The content of the different models is identical. Depending on the study model, we will adjust your tuition fees accordingly. With the part-time options, your weekly study load is reduced.
