In recent years, the number of online course providers and their offerings has increased rapidly. Typically, such courses require that you register your personal data on an external provider's website. The provider can then further process this data in accordance with its data protection regulations. Therefore, we encourage you to always consult the invidual provider's privacy statements before registering or using their services. In addition, the external provider's courses or certain content may also be subject to a fee.
The list below indicates the courses offered by third parties that are not official courses offered by the University of Zurich and are not regarded as such. These courses may be considered a supplement to Central IT's existing campus course programme, providing you with an opportunity to expand your IT skills through self-directed learning.
