Continuing Education Providers

Main content

The Centre for Continuing Education offers a wide range of services for the providers of continuous education and e-learning programmes at ETH Zurich.

Publication of continuing education courses

The Centre for Continuing Education publishes your continuing education and e-learning courses in the Continuing Education brochure, on its website and on a number of other portals, in particular that of Swissuni,  the shared continuing education website for all Swiss universities and Federal Institutes of Technology. Our Continuing Education brochure consists of about 180 pages and comes out each year in December.

We publicise courses which are intended for external continuing education customers and for which lecturers at ETH Zurich are responsible or which are (co-)sponsored by ETH Zurich. On the next page you can find out how to notify us about your courses. Please note the criteria for accepting and publishing courses.
