Continuing education

Changes are part of everyday life, also in the social services. Continue your education purposefully, so that you can meet this challenge – today and in the future.

Optimal interplay between theory and practice

At ZHAW, knowledge and specific ways to put it into practice are conveyed to you in a holistic, top-quality, topically current and professionally sound manner. With us, you benefit from optimal interplay between theory and practice: the lecturers bring in their comprehensive professional experience and incorporate the latest scientific knowledge. Here, experts from outside also frequently have a say. Input from practice is a fixed component of the curriculum.

We support you as your learning progresses

No matter whether you want to reinforce your professional know-how, have your eye on a new job, wish to expand your field of activity, or are striving for a position of leadership: graduating from ZHAW brings you a step closer to your goal. To no small extent, this is because we support you with advice from the very start, so that you can be certain of finding the offer that suits you. If you have any questions, our directors of studies, lecturers and administrative staff are ready to listen, in any phase of the learning process.

Broader horizons enhance your prospects

With us, you can expand your professional network and your horizons. A lively exchange is just as important to us as a stimulating learning environment. In on-site tuition, we convey knowledge and we direct exercises in small groups. In self-study, you combine your newly obtained abilities with your background of experience and prepare for tangible implementation in everyday life. At ZHAW, you benefit from a diverse range of different settings with didactics rich in variety, as well as from e-learning and plenty of scope for reflection.
