Assignments and examinations

Are there any deadlines? What happens if a test is negative? Can examinations also be taken orally?

Organizational matters

Who or what is FH Burgenland? Do I get a student ID card? Is it a completely new course of study? How up to date are the contents?

Degree, title and diploma

"It was especially important to me that I didn't leave the job market to do my master's. I was looking for a compressed course of study that could be completed quickly and flexibly. In this context, I would also recommend to (potential) students: Talk to your employer about your desire for further education."
