When it comes to my studies, flexibility and planning security are particularly important to me.

How does distance learning at FERNFH work?

A semester is divided into three short on-campus sessions and two distance learning phases. During the distance learning phases, you can organise your learning workload by yourself and flexibly arrange your time according to your needs. Via the Online Campus, which is available around the clock, you attend your courses independently or in small groups. Forums, video conferences and online consultation hours allow for personal exchanges with your lecturers and fellow students. At the beginning, in the middle and at the end of each semester, an on-campus session (Fridays and Saturdays) takes place at the campus in Wiener Neustadt. During these attendance periods, you will take part in introductory lectures, workshops, and exams.
