Continuing Education Master’s

Would you like to acquire an extra-occupational master's degree and combine theory with professional practice? A master's degree opens up new career opportunities.

You can participate if you have a bachelor's degree or equivalent and relevant work experience.

An extra-occupational master's program takes at least 2 years to complete, carries 120 CP, and concludes with a master's thesis. With a master's degree, you acquire an academic degree that entitles you to enter doctoral studies.

Our extra-occupational master’s programs:

Inclusive Education
Palliative care
