Distance learning abroad
Tanzania, New Zealand, China or Mexico - live where you like it best. And simply take your distance learning with you. More than 6 percent of our distance learning students already connect from anywhere in the world. Mobile times just need flexible solutions. Via our study app and the myWINGS learning platform, you can download your study materials, watch video lectures and take part in online tutorials completely independently of time and place. Your personal study advisor will keep in touch with you throughout your studies and help you with organizational questions about distance learning.
„I thank the team at WINGS from the bottom of my heart for making my life so possible. For me personally, there is no better way to study. I like my absolute freedom - to organize and plan everything only adapted to myself. No one had such a perfect offer in store.“
Are there also distance learning courses without attendance phases?
Yes. An online course of study offers you the chance to complete your distance learning without any attendance periods at all.
„ Since I was living in London when I started my studies, I was impressed by the possibility of being able to study without being tied to face-to-face events. Tutorials are recorded and lectures are available online throughout. You are completely independent in terms of time."
Natalie Mücke (New Zealand), Bachelor of Business Administration
Where can I take the exams?
You can take exams at Goethe Institutes, German consulates or embassies, German schools abroad and, by prior arrangement, at a state university abroad. Members of the Bundeswehr on deployment abroad also have the option of taking written exams directly at the place of deployment.
How can examinations at universities abroad be organized?
To be able to take an exam at a university abroad, you must establish the initial contact between the university in question and WINGS. We will then take care of the further organization in coordination with you and the foreign institution.
„ WINGS works with a wide variety of universities abroad and also with Goethe Institutes. If you want to take an exam abroad, like I did when I lived in New York for some time, they organize it. You make sure there's an exam proctor there, and they make sure your exam papers arrive on time.“
Karlotta Jensen (traveling the world as a model), Bachelor of Business Administration
Is a WINGS distance learning program interesting for me if I am not a German citizen?
Yes. Even if you are a citizen of another country, you can take advantage of the opportunities offered by the globalized education and labor market and start a distance learning program with us from your home country. In this way, you can prepare yourself for a future professional activity in Germany, for example.
What is the best way to organize the attendance times?
Our online programs do not require any attendance periods at all. In the other programs, the few attendance periods during the semester as well as oral exams can be easily combined with home leave or a business trip to Germany. WINGS offers 16 examination locations in Germany and Austria for online studies, where you can write your examinations in a variety of ways. This gives you the flexibility to choose the most convenient location.
How are distance learning students supported abroad?
During the entire study period, you will be personally supported by a study program coordinator via e-mail or telephone. In addition, you have the option of discussing subject-related questions directly with the lecturer via video conference or by telephone. The online campus "myWINGS" is available as a study-accompanying communication medium. Documents can be accessed via this platform from anywhere in the world. The online campus also offers the function of being able to contact fellow students, lecturers and the study supervisor interactively and in a study group-oriented manner at any time.
„From the first contact to the written exams, I have direct contact persons in the study program coordination and in the individual professors. Consultation hours via Adobe Connect or email enable or simplify direct contact for me.“
Anna-Lisa Politi (USA), MBA Health Management
Are all study programs in German?
Most WINGS degree programs are offered exclusively in German. Exceptions are the English-language Master Lighting Design, the Master Green Architecture and the MBA International Logistics and Trade. However, the registration procedure for exams abroad is the same for German and foreign students.
„Through online conferences, emails and social networks, living in a connected world makes it possible for this programme to be a success. It is just a matter of finding a time of the day that will work for everyone.“
Miriam Ramirez Baumgarten (Mexiko), Master Green Architecture
