The CAS, DAS and MAS programme conforms to the applicable regulations in place at the start of a given continuing or executive education programme. We expressly reserve the right to make changes and/or amendments to existing regulations and to issue new regulations during the continuing or executive education programme. These shall apply for all students as soon as they come into effect. The regulations can be read online at any time and are available on request from the Lucerne School of Computer Science and Information Technology (Secretariat).
The fee encompasses the direct costs for the continuing or executive education programme including the costs for materials as well as examination and certification fees. It does not cover the admission fees and the costs for specialist literature. Costs for accommodation and expenses shall be borne by the programme participant.
The invoice is issued once the admission process has been completed and the study place acceptance form has been signed and returned. The invoice must be paid before the first day of instruction. Persons who fail to meet their payment obligations may be excluded from the programme. Payment in instalments is possible upon consultation with the continuing and executive education office.
Between CHF 300 and 500 is charged for exam resits, depending on the scope of the exam and the number of modules to retake. CHF 300 is charged for the improvement of a final thesis and CHF 1,200 is charged for the retake of a final thesis.
Withdrawal of application and early termination of a continuing or executive education programme
The application becomes binding upon the participant’s signing of the acceptance of study place. If the application is withdrawn between the return of the signed acceptance of study place and one month before the commencement of the programme, the participant must pay the study fee for the first semester in full. If the application is withdrawn later or if the programme is terminated early, the full costs for the continuing or executive programme must be paid.
The Lucerne School of Music is committed to maintaining the high quality of its continuing and executive education programmes. Necessary changes to the programmes, for instance changes in personnel, do not entitle the programme participant to terminate the programme early without cost implications.
The continuing and executive education office must be notified in writing of a withdrawal of application to, or early termination of, a programme. The Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts recommends you take out cancellation insurance. It is available from a wide range of insurance companies.
Postponement of a continuing or executive education programme
If an insufficient number of participants apply for a continuing or executive education programme, the Head of Programme may postpone it to a later date. The registered participants will be informed accordingly after the application deadline. If the programme is postponed, the registered participants may maintain their registration or cancel it without cost implications.
Digital teaching activities
Copyright and personal rights as well as the right to one’s own image also apply to online teaching activities. Written material, videos and other teaching materials made available on ILIAS and in web meetings must not be shared with third parties. The recording of web meetings requires the prior express consent of all parties involved.
The Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts and its Schools provide no insurance coverage for the damage, destruction or loss of items (including musical instruments, personal valuables, electronic equipment such as notebooks, digital cameras, storage devices or similar) owned by students. It is therefore the participants’ responsibility to take out insurance for this kind of occurrence.
Participants undertake to comply with the internal order, health and safety regulations of the Lucerne School of Music. Participants are held liable for any damage to the property of the Lucerne School of Music caused through negligence. They are responsible for taking out liability insurance.
Data protection guidelines
