Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin - Enhancing digital teaching

Part-Time Study

Are you juggling your studies with a part-time job, family commitments or illness? There are many factors that can make studying more difficult…

To make it easier to combine studying with everyday professional and family life, the project team of Part-Time Study is dedicated to developing the range of life-long learning on offer at Humboldt-Universität.

Project Aims and Approach

Due to the growing significance of life-long learning, nowadays many students face the challenge of combining their studies with multiple additional commitments, be that through work, care obligations in the family, health issues or a combination of all three. Against this background, the project Part-Time Study develops practical solutions that make it easier to combine studying at Humboldt-Universität with everyday professional and family life. The project responds to students“ individual circumstances, regardless of their official status, giving them a realistic chance of successfully completing their studies in spite of multiple burdens.

The main aims of the project are:

  • To set up support-networks for students with multiple commitments
  • To create opportunities for a more flexible combination of class-based study, independent learning and online study
  • To ensure that programme requirements are adapted to part-time study mode


What we offer for students:

  • Individual advice on combining studies with professional and family commitments
  • Support in creating personal schedules and study plans
  • A range of additional classes facilitated through part-time visiting lecturers
  • Additional demand-based tutorials (“Begleitendes Lernen”) to provide learning support during the introductory phase
  • The development of a range of digital study resources to facilitate flexible learning and independent study


Students who are interested are warmly invited to enrol on the Moodle course „Part-Time Study“ (Studieren in Teilzeit), where they will find additional information on part-time study and receive email news updates on the subject.
