Continuing Education Programmes

The University of Zurich offers a broad range of high-level continuing education programs including extended degree programs and shorter courses running for one or more days.

Most of the University of Zurich's continuing education degree programs are modular, and lead to a university degree. There are programs conferring a Master of Advanced Studies (MAS), a Diploma of Advanced Studies (DAS), or a Certificate of Advanced Studies (CAS). Programs last from a few months (CAS) to two or more years (MAS), and can be completed on a part-time basis. The programs are part of the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS), giving students transparency and ensuring their qualifications are internationally recognized.

Continuing education courses last for one or more days; participants will receive confirmation of participation if desired. There are subject-specific courses designed for selected groups of professionals, as well as courses on general topics open to anyone interested.

As a rule, courses are held at the University of Zurich's Center for Continuing Education. Its 40 seminar rooms provide the ideal environment for modern continuing education geared specifically to the needs of adults. Located at Schaffhauserstrasse 228 in Zurich, the center is around ten minutes from Zurich main station and Oerlikon station by tram number 10 or 14. There are around 40 paid parking spaces for participants traveling by car.
