Flexible part-time degree programs

Are you looking for a way to combine your career and your life with a flexible degree program - without making any compromises? Then the flexible part-time programs at TUM might just be the thing you are looking for.

Our part-time programs offer you maximum flexibility: You can choose between different tracks, reducing the work load to 50% or 66% or a full-time program. You can change the track every semester, and even switch between full-time and part-time - just as it fits your personal plans and needs. 

What else do I have to know about part-time programs?

  • Double degree programs are a further option allowing you to enroll in two part-time programs simultane­ously, or to com­bine a full-time program with part-time studies.
  • The Student Union fee and the base-level semester­ ticket fee must be paid in full.

  • Proof of health insurance coverage is required. If you are working and your earnings exceed the limit for marginal employment, you will not be eligible for the reduced student rates.

  • Applicants are not entitled to federally funded student financial aid (BAföG).

  • Applicants from outside the EU who have enrolled in a part-time program are not entitled to a resi­dence per­mit.

Please note that you have to fulfill the same admission criteria and adhere to the same application deadlines as students applying for full-time programs.
