The Technical University of Kaiserslautern's Distance and Independent Studies Center (DISC) is a leading provider of distance learning in Germany. DISC offers the opportunity to obtain a postgraduate distance learning degree while still focusing on family and career. 

A key philosophy of DISC is the concept of independent learning. The course modules are created with this in mind and aims to strengthen the self-study skills of students. About 4,000 graduates are taking DISC courses to enhance their careers. Students come from Germany, it's neighboring countries, as well as a number of other countries abroad.

The institution offers courses in the following disciplines:

  • Science & Engineering

  • Management & Law

DISC uses a study concept that is based on three proven pillars:

  • Carefully prepared, written study material with instructions and tips enhances and simplifies learning at your own desk.
  • Several courses offered enable you to obtain the required credits via online seminars.
  • On-campus events, normally held in Kaiserslautern once per term on a weekend, reinforces the knowledge gained. This is also when examinations are written.

Depending on the course taken, studies conclude with the internationally recognized academic title of "Master" or a graded university certificate from the University of Kaiserslautern.
