Sports Certificate Programs

Since 1999, the University Sport Institute (USI) of the University of Vienna has been offering continuing education and training programs. Experience gained over the last 16 years tells us that many students have great interest in the diverse education and training courses offered by the USI. Many students and academics use the continuing education and training courses at the USI to establish a second professional foothold or gain practical experience for their future professions.

In close cooperation with the University of Vienna’s Postgraduate Center, the USI now offers seven certificate programs. Depending on their special focus, the courses are targeted at degree programme students at all universities and universities of applied sciences, academics as well as people with a university entrance qualification.

The scope of the certificate programs ranges between eight and 25 ECTS Credits. Some of the courses are divided into several modules. The USI offers the following certificate courses:

  • Boulder- and sport climbing trainer
  • Dance Instructor for Urban & Classic Dance Styles
  • Health and Vitality Coach
  • Classical Massage – basic training
  • Mental training with focus on relaxation techniques
  • Pilates trainer
  • Yoga Instructor
