As a rule, studying at TU Bergakademie is a full-time programme. In the event of particular personal challenges, students may be able to organise their studies individually through part-time study.

The part-time programme generally comprises 50% of the scope of study and examinations per semester planned for the full-time programme. One semester of full-time study corresponds to two semesters of part-time study. In the part-time programme, the standard period of study is increased according to the part-time factor.
