Study the way you want

Your studies, your decision. In myStudies you decide yourself about your studies. You want to spend a semester abroad or in another city? Do it! With myStudies you are flexible and can decide each semester quartal whether you prefer to study virtually or on campus.

Lecturers from practice

In myStudies you will find modern subjects taught by lecturers from the field. What does that mean for you? Through their own careers, our teaching staff knows exactly which qualities and requirements are important and thus prepares you optimally for your entry into professional life.

Lessons in small groups

Overcrowded lecture halls? Not with us! Our lecturers teach in small groups. This means you can ask questions at any time and benefit from a greater learning effect.

On campus or virtually?

You want to meet new people? Check! Simply study at one of our central locations and exchange ideas directly with lecturers and fellow students - for fun and success in your studies.

No campus near you? Then study at our virtual campus! There you will be taught live and interactively via video conferencing. This way, you can complete myStudies completely independent of location, without having to forego direct exchange and structured learning under the guidance of experienced instructors.
