General information on catching up on school leaving certificates

Schools for adults ("Second Chance of Education") are schools or institutions where appropriate qualifications can be obtained. They contribute to lifelong learning after compulsory schooling.

The educational offer is aimed at adults who want to improve their general education and employability, acquire a higher school leaving certificate or the ability to study.

In Schleswig-Holstein, school qualifications (including the non-student examination or the university aptitude test) can, among other things,

  • at adult education centres,
  • at evening grammar schools or
  • at the Telekolleg

can be purchased.
