Our study guarantee: start your studies online or on campus

As an educational institution, we want to ensure that our students can start studying with us no matter the circumstance and we want to give you every chance to progress with your education and build a successful career. At GISMA we want to assure you that there will be an option for you to study and start your programme on time regardless of whether the campus is open or closed. We also want to assure you that you will still be able to study in the case where the campus is open but, due to health concerns or travel restrictions, you are unable to attend the classes in person on time.

Students will learn in a hybrid format, which is a live learning experience and allows for interaction with the tutor, as well as the ability to work in student groups. Students will then have the option to complete the programme on-campus in Germany as soon as possible.
