Continuing professional development

Looking for continuing professional development for your employees? The Division for Contract Education is your gateway to Uppsala University, regardless of which subject area you are interested in.


The Division for Contract Education is the University’s central unit with the goal of assuring the quality of all contract education at Uppsala University.

Contract education is carried out on behalf of the client and therefore comes at a fee. The Division for Contract Education coordinates the training, both in relation to the client and the University department. University departments deliver the academic content.

Courses vary in length from one or a few days to an entire year. Many courses also give academic credits, others only course certificates.

Our experience ranges from short specialised training for doctors and nurses to Master’s programmes for managers in the Vietnamese government administration, from competence training for vicars to environmental training programmes for police officers, from the training of preschool teachers to training in applied reactor physics for engineers in the nuclear industry.
