Overview

You can attend a wide range of bachelor’s, master’s and further education courses at HTW Chur.

Bachelor’s degree programmes

A bachelor’s degree programme represents the first level of study in the Swiss higher education system and comprises 180 ECTS credits. Admission to a bachelor’s degree programme generally requires a federally recognised school-leaving certificate (Matura) or an equivalent foreign qualification. With a bachelor’s degree programme, you obtain a university degree that qualifies you for your chosen profession within three (full-time study) or four (part-time study) years. An employment level of no more than 60% is permitted alongside part-time study.

Master’s degree programmes

Master of Science (MSc) are master’s degree programmes that follow on directly from a bachelor’s degree programme or that require the completion of a bachelor’s degree programme in advance. A Master of Science can serve to deepen the scientific knowledge acquired during a previous study programme or open up new areas of knowledge. These courses are also referred to as consecutive or follow-on master’s degrees. An employment level of no more than 60% is permitted alongside the study programme.

Diploma of Advanced Studies (DAS)

Diplomas of Advanced Studies (DAS) are further education programmes provided on a job-concurrent basis for which at least 30 ECTS credits must be achieved. Graduates of these programmes complete their studies with a diploma thesis and are awarded a diploma.

Certificate of Advanced Studies (CAS)

Certificates of Advanced Studies (CAS) are further education programmes provided on a job-concurrent basis for which at least 10 ECTS credits must be achieved.
