German term or phrase: Verbundstudiengang
Have found plenty of definitions for this. In NRW this is a course of studies allowing people in the workforce or apprenticeships to study part-time, by distance learning and weekend seminars etc. to achieve a degree. This kind of study used to be called a "sandwich course in the UK, but I believe that involved blocks of study at the university/college combined with work experience, so not quite the equivalent. Are there similar courses in US or UK and what would they be called?

From Wikipedia: Beim Verbundstudium handelt es sich um eine spezifische Form des Fernstudiums an nordrhein-westfälischen Fachhochschulen. Die Verbundstudiengänge richten sich in erster Linie an Berufstätige und Auszubildende.

Das Verbundstudium ist ein neuartiges Studienangebot, das berufsbegleitend absolviert werden kann. Es führt Berufstätige, präzise abgestimmt auf ihre Bedürfnisse und Möglichkeiten, zum Fachhochschulabschluss. Neben Selbststudienabschnitten, die etwa 70 % des Studiums ausmachen, werden regelmäßig praxisorientierte Präsenzphasen durchgeführt. Das Verbundstudium ermöglicht die effektive Qualifikation mit dem Niveau der staatlichen Fachhochschulen

Das Verbundstudium - Innovative study courses combining distance and campus learning
by Michael Endemann, Professor Dr. Werner Poguntke and Jutta Sczesny

The model of Integrated Campus and Distance Education (Verbundstudium) meets the demands of scientific and educational politics for further development of studies and teaching. The dual-mode-universities especially in Australia but as well in England are basically comparable to this model
