Types of studies
Foreign students that are enrolled at a German university and want to earn a German university degree will choose to study full time. If you want to study for a shorter period at a German university (one or two semesters only), a part-time study is the right choice for you. Foreign students enrolled in a part-time course receive accreditation for the classes taken (credits) instead of a degree.
