University Extension

As Austria’s largest educational and research institution, the University of Vienna plays a decisive role in our society and aims at advancing the mutual knowledge exchange between the University and society. The Postgraduate Center as a central provider of continuing education and training as well as lifelong learning at the University of Vienna demonstrates that knowledge gained at university is not only useful during initial studies but also as part-time continuing education and training in every stage of a person’s career.

Therefore, the Postgraduate Center also offers continuing education and training free of charge and as open learning formats. The series "University Meets..." comprising lectures, discussions or workshops fosters targeted exchange with the regional economy, the population in Vienna, industrial enterprises or NGOs. This serves as a contribution of the University of Vienna to our knowledge society, the universities' third mission and successful lifelong learning.
