  • You cannot complete the semester in which you write your final thesis on a part-time basis.
  • During part-time study, you will not receive any German state student grant or loan  (BaföG), as your working time is not being fully used for studying (Section 2 no. 5 BAföG). Please obtain information from the BaföG office before applying for part-time study.
  • The periods of study that you complete on a part-time basis will be counted towards the regular period of study.
  • Part-time semester count as full university semester and half subject-related semester
