Continuing education

By offering continuing education, opportunities universities are carrying out their mandate to provide continuing education to people who have a university degree and professional experience. Continuing education is a form of knowledge transfer between university and real world experience and is part of lifelong learning. The continuing education offering at universities ranges from one-day courses to comprehensive continuing education programmes.

In addition to the certificate MAS and DAS offerings, universities of teacher education also offer non-certificated continuing education courses, for which a certificate of participation is issued.
