Ferdinand Porsche FERNFH – Distance-Learning University of Applied Sciences – offers five degree programmes in three different fields. These are organised as distance learning programmes with on-campus sessions and self-defined distance learning phases. This allows you to study flexibly alongside your job and family (or while discovering a foreign country / foreign countries) without being tied to a specific location. The innovative organisational form of FERNFH degree programmes paves the way for new professional opportunities for you and creates space for your individual way of life.
Founded in 2006, the Distance-Learning University of Applied Sciences (FERNFH) is Austria’s first and only distance-learning higher education institution. We think that’s a possible solution and effective support to the need for higher education of those who cannot commit themselves to traditional university studies.
The FERNFH is dedicated to reducing individual and structural barriers to university-level education and to increasing equal opportunities for traditional and non-traditional students in tertiary education who are interested in realising academic ambitions. We support those who want to gain a higher education qualification and concurrently must fulfil family-, social-, and work-related responsibilities.
