Continuing education courses are non-degree study programmes with fixed curricula. They are part of the further training offered at the University of Innsbruck. In order to be admitted to a continuing education course, students must have completed a study programme or be able to prove experience working in the relevant field. Lectures are generally held in the evening or at weekends in order to give working students the chance to attend continuing education courses. Students attending continuing education courses must pay course fees. These fees reflect the actual cost of running the course.

The University of Innsbruck offers a wide range of continuing education courses, which focus in particular on interdisciplinary work and provide students with skills in demand in the labour market. Students who complete continuing education courses receive an internationally recognised MA or an academic title (e.g. Academic Expert).

In line with the categories set out by the Austrian Federal Minister for Science and Research (bmwf), the University of Innsbruck offers continuing education courses in the following fields:        

  • health sector,
  • media / society,
  • law,
  • technology, natural sciences,

University courses offer students continued training in a specialist field. They are generally shorter than continuing education courses and are designed for students in employment. They are held at irregular intervals and are completed with a certificate.
