Part Time Masters in Psychology at Zurich Univeristy

Hello everybody,

I am considering doing a masters in Psychology at Zurich University. They say they allow part time studies and you just need to register for less modules.
When I look at their seminar schedule it looks all over the place.

I will be doing the Hauptfach 105 and you can see the classes/seminars here.

Does anybody have any expirience with that. Is it really possible to work 50% and also study there? Maybe ZHAw with the Friday and Saturday classes is a better option.

Re: Part Time Masters in Psychology at Zurich Univeristy

You mean students are limited by the student visa on how many hours they can work a week. I donít need a student visa. I was asking more about people experiences of balancing work and study. Unfortunately this depends on the persons but still I would like to hear some experiences...

Thanks

Re: Part Time Masters in Psychology at Zurich Univeristy

It's rare to have a possibility to cherry pick just some courses and save an uninterrupted block of time for that (ie 2,5 days for 50% student). It's pretty much just luck and a rare treat if it works out to have a day or two free, and it depends on the particular courses you decide to leave out for the next year.

The schedules are planned to suit the distribution of profs who often teach at multiple institutions or work on top of their uni teaching load.

Re: Part Time Masters in Psychology at Zurich Univeristy

Thank you for your answer. I will push this further.

I contacted Fribourg university and I was told that they dont request and language proof but they recommend B2. It seems there is a choice between german and french and lots of courses are in english. I was told I can myke my own schedule, though i dont know what that means.

Anybody studying there?
