Our philosophy

As the central service centre of the Schmalkalden University of Applied Sciences, the Centre for Continuing Education has been successfully offering extra occupational distance learning courses for various professional groups for more than fourteen years. Practical relevance, application orientation and economic proximity are the focus of our further training courses. All study programmes are therefore developed and implemented in close cooperation with professors from Schmalkalden University, scientists from other universities and experts from professional practice.

Our target groups

The continuing education courses are primarily aimed at people from professional practice and offer the opportunity to expand and deepen existing specialist knowledge. All continuing education courses are conducted in parallel to the students’ everyday professional life, thereby ensuring their financial protection. Moreover, the newly acquired knowledge can be directly tested and implemented in practice.
