Balancing study and a job

Studying while working is a major challenge at face-to-face schools or universities. Not so at the WAM Media Academy. Thanks to clear structures and great flexibility, it is easy to study while working. And because it is a live study programme, it also has many advantages over distance learning. Studying part-time in communication and media design, illustration or creative writing works well because it is easier to manage your job and studies. You can easily catch up on lectures if you miss a live online lecture due to your job.

These subjects can be studied online at the WAM:


The main advantage of this part-time degree programme is its great flexibility. This starts with the information events. You don't have to travel to these events as you would for most universities for a face-to-face programme. From the very beginning - starting with the information day - you study virtually from the comfort of your own home and can pursue your job before or after. The same applies to the application process. This also takes place completely online - including digital submission of the application portfolio and your personal interview via Zoom.

The alternation between live online lessons and the self-study phase is another major advantage for students who are studying part-time. This allows you to better harmonise your work and studies and your work-life balance is not thrown out of kilter. The lecturers also help you to achieve a good work-study balance. They are available both during lectures and in the chat outside of class.
