Part-time Studies

You can complete the German Linguistics master’s degree on a full-time or part-time basis.

Studying on a part-time basis is particularly helpful for students with children, working students and students with disabilities or chronic illnesses, as the extended study period reduces the workload during the semester.

When studied part time, the master's degree course takes 8 semesters instead of 4 semesters.

You do not need to provide any reasons to enrol on a part-time course. You may also switch from a full-time model to a part-time model during any semester’s enrolment period. This reduces the workload in each semester by half.

Part-time studies are governed by the part-time study regulations (Ordnung für das Teilzeitstudium).
