Study periods

The course is organised on a part-time basis: the first and second semesters include modular attendance phases at weekends, e-learning units and guided self-study. The timetable for the Master’s thesis seminar in the third semester will be agreed on an individual basis. The three-semester course includes around 705 contact hours, which are supplemented by periods of self-study translating into a total of 90 ECTS credits or a workload of 3000 hours.

Attendance at the university

Attendance phases take place at regular intervals on around ten to twelve weekends (Friday and Saturday). Extended attendance weekends from Thursday to Saturday are scheduled for the beginning and end of the first and second semesters. The third semester starts with weekend attendance, followed by Master’s seminars during the semester which are agreed on an individual basis.


E-learning is intended to supplement attendance at lectures. Around one third of all classes are delivered via e-learning. E-learning units are divided into synchronous sessions and asynchronous work assignments. The units are organised in coordination with the lecturers.


Since the course comprises a total of 90 ECTS credits, students are required to undertake additional self-study in the form of written elaborations and source study.
