Part-time Studies

At the University of Bamberg, almost all degree programmes can be studied part-time.

The prerequisite for this is enrolment in the respective part-time degree programme.

In degree programmes with unlimited admission, it is possible to change from full-time to part-time studies any semester by applying by post to the Registrar’s Office during the enrolment/re-registration period of the respective semester. A change between full-time and part-time studies in degree programmes with restricted admission is only possible if you apply for and are granted a place in the respective degree programme.

The standard programme duration for a part-time degree programme is twice as long as for a full-time degree programme. You can earn a maximum of 18 ECTS per semester in a part-time degree. If you exceed this maximum number of ECTS points, two part-time semesters will be counted.

If you wish to enrol part-time from the very beginning of your studies, please complete the online enrolment for a ‘full-time programme’ and additionally send the application for part-time studies together with the enrolment documents.

Changing to a part-time programme is not possible if you have already begun a bachelor’s or master’s thesis in a full-time degree programme.

For further information on part-time studies as well as a list of degree programmes and subjects that can be studied part-time, please see: Regulations for part-time study in Bachelor’s and Master’s degree programmes at the University of Bamberg.

Please note:

As soon as your submitted application for changing your type of studies has been processed, you will be able to see this change for the applicable semester in the online services when you print out a new enrolment certificate.

A change in the type of studies will only be visible in FlexNow at the beginning of the respective semester due to the later semester rollover in this program!
