Information on Post-Graduate Vocational Training Programmes

What they are, who they target and the enrolment procedures applicable to Post-Graduate Vocational Training Programmes at the University of Bologna.

Updating knowledge and learning new skills are key factors for tackling the complexities of the job market.

University Post-Graduate Vocational Training Programmes run by the University of Bologna target people who are already working or who in any case have already initiated a professional career.

The flexible, customised learning formulas with modular timetables were designed to ensure the participation of worker-students.

Moreover, most of the courses also accept unemployed students, provided they have already gained some form of significant work experience.

At the end of the course, certificates are issued  to confirm the acquired skills and in some cases university learning credits are also awarded.
