Study part-time

Study mode

Our part-time Bachelor’s degree programme is compatible with career and family. The high proportion of e-learning and consequent freedom to work anywhere is a key advantage. You only spend one or two weekends a month at FH JOANNEUM – the rest of the time you study online.

Lectures are scheduled for Thursdays, from 18:00 to 22:00, Fridays from 14:00 to 22:00, and Saturdays from 08:30 to around 17:00. Your time is divided between attending lectures and online study units: Thursdays are principally taught online, Fridays and Saturdays are split between classroom teaching and online units.

The part-time structure of the course also meets the needs of those completing their compulsory military and civil service: you can start the Software Design degree programme on a part-time basis, parallel with your compulsory service, and swap over to full-time study on the Internet Technology programme after the first or second semester.

Self-study

The amount of self-study always depends on the student’s own level of commitment and ambition.

Attendance

Attendance is compulsory during the specified attendance times. Students are excused in cases of illness after producing a medical certificate from a doctor. Final judgement on the implications of absence and on exceptions to the attendance requirement will be made by the head of institute.
