6 good reasons
to choose RPTU for your distance learning

Distance learning at a public university

As a distance learning student at RPTU Kaiserslautern-Landau, you can take advantage of all the facilities of a large university, such as the university library or online self-study offerings.


Continuing education at an academic level

All of our Master‘s and Certificate programmes combine academic content with reflexion from a practical point of view and encourage participants to transfer their knowledge to their own professional activities.

Certified quality

Our distance learning programmes are part of RPTU‘s university quality management system. DISC‘s programmes are either accredited through internal RPTU procedures or undergo an external programme accreditation procedure.

Fair fees

As a public university, we do not work for profit, but to cover our costs. We are therefore able to offer our distance learning programmes at moderate prices.

Excellent work-life-learn balance

In our part-time degree programmes you study largely independently of time and place. This allows you to comfortably balance your studies with your other responsibilities.

Maximum support

Each of our distance learning programmes has a dedicated contact person who will provide you with comprehensive advice and support on all aspects of distance learning. You will also be able to interact directly with lecturers and fellow students during on-campus phases.
