Center of distance studies in universities
zfh - Zentrum für Fernstudien im Hochschulverbund, which was established in 1995 and has its registered office in Coblenz, is a scientific institution of the German states of Rhineland-Palatinate, Saarland and Hesse. zfh promotes and supports the development and implementation of distance learning studies in these German federal states and in that respect co-operates with 18 universities. The center supports the universities in developing and dispatching study materials, in respect of PR work and course organisation, and in providing interested parties with comprehensive advice.
More than 80 programmes
The programme currently comprises more than 60 distance learning courses and includes social sciences, business administration and technical fields. The number of students has continually increased since the center was established. In the meantime, more than 6.200 students have registered for distance learning courses of the participating universities.
Studying while working
The distance learning courses are targeted to university graduates and those in employment who have acquired job experience over many years. However, the courses also offer a wide range of opportunities to gain subsequent and higher qualifications for persons wishing to change professions.
All zfh distance learning courses with a view to obtaining a Bachelor or Master qualification are certified by the accreditation agencies AQAS, ZEvA, AQUIN, FIBAA or AHPGS, and are therefore internationally recognised.
