defaultAdult Education

Germany offers many opportunities for further education after leaving school or university. Under the term „Erwachsenenbildung“ (adult education) a range of offers in various locations are advertised. Adults can catch up on school certificates, attend language courses, obtain special qualifications such as computer skills or further their career options.

The following sections will provide an overview of adult education offers in Bremen.

  • What offers are there for me?

    Adult education offers a wide range of opportunities catering towards your individual needs and previous knowledge.

    Language courses range from general literacy programmes to learn how to read and write up to german and foreign language courses.

    School certificates can be achieved by people without any school experience as well as people with school experience who didn’t graduate.

    Aside from more general courses such as health or culture, adult education courses offer the chance to obtain key qualifiations (computer literacy, accounting and management) as well as further education for people with specialized previous knowledge.

  • What are the entry requirements?

    The entry requirements vary from course to course. Literacy programmes and more general knowledge courses can often be attended without previous knowledge.
