CAS – Certificate of Advanced Studies

Become a specialist step by step.

The numerous CAS programmes at FHNW give participants well-founded, practically oriented specialist expertise in a field relevant to them within a short period of time. The subject-specific certificate programmes provide the basic modules for continuing education programmes in the Advanced Studies area. A CAS can often be taken as module to form part of an MAS (Master of Advanced Studies) and on average will take six months to complete at FHNW on a part-time basis. On successful completion, a CAS certificate is issued (at least 10 ECTS points).
