New continuing education programmes at the CUAS Academy

In October 2021, a groundbreaking reform package for continuing education at universities of applied sciences was adopted, creating a standardised framework. This reform ensures that degrees from ordinary degree programmes and extraordinary degree programmes (university courses) are equivalent. We at the Carinthia University of Applied Sciences welcome this reform package and the new opportunities it opens up with great enthusiasm. Our new continuing education courses will be offered from the winter semester 2023/2024.

Future higher education programmes and degrees

In the world of education and training, it will be possible to obtain an associate bachelor's degree in the future. A continuing education bachelor's degree will comprise a standardised 180 ECTS credits, while a master's degree will comprise 120 ECTS credits. The degree titles will bear the suffix "(CE)", which stands for "Continuing Education". This means that an associate bachelor's degree programme concludes with a Bachelor Continuing Education (CE) and a master's degree programme concludes with a Master Continuing Education (CE). The addition of the (CE) suffix makes study programmes in continuing education visible and provides evidence of specialised expertise.

In future, higher education programmes that are carried out in extended cooperation with non-university educational institutions will lead to a "Bachelor Professional" (BPr) or "Master Professional" (MPr) degree. In addition, graduates of continuing education master's programmes will have the opportunity to apply for a doctoral programme in the interests of permeability.

What are the advantages of the new titles?

  1. Modernisation and relevance: The reform of continuing education at universities aims to make educational programmes more contemporary and practical. The new titles are designed to fulfil the requirements of today's working world. With a degree from the updated curriculum, you will be optimally prepared for the challenges of the 21st century.
  2. International connection: The new titles are internationally recognised and facilitate access to educational institutions and employers worldwide. This means that you can make your mark not only in Austria, but also in a global context.
  3. Flexibility and adaptability: Our reformed educational programmes offer a wide range of courses and specialisations, allowing you to tailor your educational pathway to your personal interests and career goals. The flexibility offered by these new titles allows you to shape your career your way.
  4. Future-proof: The demand for well-trained specialists is constantly increasing. With a degree from our reformed system, you can be sure that you will be in demand on the labour market and can develop your career further.
  5. Practical experience: The reform also includes increased practical experience and internships to ensure that you not only have theoretical knowledge, but also develop practical skills that are essential in the world of work.

Prepare yourself for an exciting journey that will transform your education and your career. The reform of higher education in Austria brings a breath of fresh air to the educational landscape and offers you the opportunity to compete in a globalised world.

Take this opportunity to realise your professional dreams and prepare for a successful future. Explore our website to find out more about the new educational titles and the reform of higher education in Austria. Take the first step towards an exciting and promising educational journey!
