Distance learning: Display

Distance learning courses, which are exclusively for leisure or entertainment purposes, do not require admission. However, the distribution of these so-called hobby courses must be notified to the competent authority. In these courses, contract design, advertising and information as well as the use of representatives must comply with the requirements of the Law on the Protection of Distance Learning Participants (FernUSG). Distance learning courses which are not exclusively for leisure or entertainment require admission. Further information can be found in the "Distance Courses Admission" service.
