Part-Time Study

Subject to the prior approval of the ILF, students may arrange to complete the regular one-year LL.M. Finance program over a period of two years. The purpose of such an arrangement is to allow students to work part-time during their studies, thereby financing their studies at the ILF.

If you decide to do the program on a part-time basis, you will be required to accumulate at least 90 credit points over a period of 2 years instead of 1 year. Of the 90 credit points, 60 credit points shall arise from the successful completion of twelve 5-credits courses. This means that you will have to take at least 3 courses per semester in order to have 12 courses completed by the end of the 2 years' (or 4 semesters') period.

Depending on the scheduling of the individual courses selected by you, you will probably have to attend classes at least once a week for each course selected. If you continue working during your studies, you may request for an exemption of the internship requirement of the program regulations.

Students who have opted for a full-time program will not be allowed to switch to a part-time program after the start of the program.
