Please note

  • If you are studying part time, it is up to you to put together your study programme plan. Questions relating to choosing modules should be addressed to your faculty administration or your study programme advisor.
  • 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.
  • If you are entitled to unemployment benefit 2 while studying part-time, you can be exempted from paying the semester ticket both completely before and proportionately in the middle of the semester.


Please submit the application for part-time studies available on the LSF by e-mail from your HTW account to the Student Service Centre by the stipulated deadline.


Please change your part-time study status back to full-time study by the stipulated deadlines if you no longer wish to study part time. Please send the revocation of part-time studies form to the Student Service Centre by email  from your HTW-account. The form is also available on the LSF.

Do not forget to re-register!

Changing in part-time / full-time is only possible after proper re-registration for the respective semester. Also think about re-registration deadlines.

Final semester

Please submit an informal application to your team at the Student Services Office if you would also like to complete your final semester on a part-time basis. The status as a part-time student does not mean that the time required to complete the thesis will be extended.
