These programs enable students to pursue an advanced degree at a different pace, devoting half or two-thirds of the standard weekly hours of study for full-time programs. The number of required credits per semester and the standard duration of study are adjusted accordingly.

Part-time study programs are exceptionally flexible: If students’ circumstances change, they can choose to attend 50 percent, 66 percent and full-time. 

The new part-time model has been successfully tested in the “Electrical Engineering and Information Technology” and “Informatics” programs and, as of summer semester 2015, will be available for the "Landscape Architecture" and "Mathematics" master’s degree programs. The "Environmental Planning and Engineering Ecology" part-time program will be reliably introduced. More programs are to be introduced regularly.
