If certain requirements are met, students can be approved for part-time studies according to § 9 of the THM enrollment statutes.

The application is made directly through the E-campus via the menu service - Requests - Other requests. If you no longer have access to the E-Campus, please contact the InfoCenter.

  1. Employment:
