In addition to bachelor and master programmes, also diploma programmes are provided at Universities, Universities of Applied Sciences and Private Universities. Private Universities only offer the fields of Human Medicine and Catholic Theology as diploma programmes. There are still 4 diploma programmes provided by Universities of Applied Sciences, however, those are being phased out.

Diploma programmes have a duration of 8 to 10 semesters and are concluded with an academic degree:“Magister/Magistra” or “Diplom-Ingenieur/in”, with a suffix designated by the curriculum and the addition of “FH)”. These programmes are governed by the same provisions as those applicable to bachelor and master programmes.
