Building RA:

If you have a car you need to be aware that parking is NOT POSSIBLE at the Building RA. Parking is available near the building but you will have to pay the relevant hourly meter rate.

Note: some parking is time restricted so check how many hours you can leave your car otherwise you may get a ticket.

Grüental and Reidbach Campus:

Parking is available but you have to pay per hour.

Part Time or Full Time Study?

Studying full-time has the advantage that students can concentrate exclusively on their studies. Furthermore, the full-time study programme can be completed in a shorter period than the part-time option.

Studying part-time has the advantage of a continuous exchange between theory and practice. New knowledge from one’s studies can immediately be transferred to everyday work. Furthermore, being able to work part-time helps you to finance your studies.

In the end, your choice will depend on your preferences and individual situation.
