Our study programs are based on current research and assessed at the highest level, and as a student, you will be part of an active study environment characterized by an informal setting, all of which combine to equip you for a professional career.

Our programs offer advanced education designed to prepare you to work in a specific field or discipline. Similar to other academic degrees, like doctorates and certain master's, Advanced degrees are considered terminal degrees or the highest degree you can achieve in an area.

Advanced Studies awards are specifically geared toward a particular career profile. They are awarded in Switzerland, Austria, Liechtenstein, Germany, and various other countries in the world, as higher continuing education (‘Weiterbildung’) degrees.

Associate degree

An associate’s degree is a two-year academic program taken at the undergraduate level (the first stage after secondary school). It aims to give students the basic technical and academic knowledge and transferable skills they need to go on to employment or further study in their chosen field. Students who’ve completed an associate’s degree may be able to transfer some relevant course credits to count towards a Bachelor’s degree, shortening the time needed for the latter degree. In many cases, associate degree graduates can progress to our Master of Advanced Studies degree schemes.


A Bachelor’s degree is a course of academic study leading to a qualification such as a Bachelor of Arts (BA) or a Bachelor of Science (BSc). A BA/BSc is designed to give you a thorough understanding of a subject. It helps you develop your analytical, intellectual, and essay/dissertation writing skills. Different courses will assess you in different ways. Generally, bachelor’s degrees involve a mixture of exams and coursework. Some ask you for a written dissertation that you produce at the end of the course.
