About Us

The Central Institute for Continuing Education (ZIB) sees itself as a central scientific institution in the field of education and works together with the departments, structural units and the administration as well as with external partners to make the university a place of lifelong learning for its members and external interested parties.

In addition to offering teaching in the areas of languages and extracurricular studies as well as optional courses, the ZIB supports the conception, implementation and coordination of intra-deparmental, inter-departmental and inter-university continuing education measures and programs. The diverse spectrum of teaching and further education offers is aimed at all interested parties who want to deepen, expand or refresh their existing knowledge and skills in a targeted manner.
