Study model

Your myStudium - as flexible as you

Study the way you want

Simply decide for yourself whether you want to learn on campus or virtually. And benefit from a structured curriculum at the same time.

Study in a group

You study flexibly and with practical orientation under the guidance of experienced lecturers.

Less exam pressure

Thanks to the split semester, your exam periods are spread out over the year.

How does it work?

  • Your courses will take place 2 to 3 days a week at the campus or in our virtual campus.

  • You can look forward to meeting your fellow students in small learning groups and a direct exchange with your lecturer.

  • To help you prepare for events and exams, you can access scripts, videos and presentations at any time via our online learning portal.

  • Thanks to the two-part semester format, you only study three modules at a time and conclude them directly with an exam. This means you don't have to take six exams at the end of the semester all at once.

Please note: all of our videos are available in German language only. If you want to know more about the benefits of myStudium, please feel free to contact us at any time.
