Continuing education for all ages
The University of Angers provides quality resources for anyone wishing to continue his or her education whether for professional or personal reasons.
We thereby give great importance on programmes aimed at helping adults access university studies.
We offer courses leading to a secondary studies equivalency certificate, and we offer transfer credits recognising life and work experience for admission to academic studies.
We also offer customised courses and training for companies, public agencies and associations.
Access to university studies and credit for life experience
The University of Angers welcomes all those seeking to take up studies again whether for professional or personal reasons. To facilitate the process of getting back into studies or back into the working world we off er Access diplomas DAEU (credit for studies completed previously) as well as credit for life experience (VAE).
Helping those who wish to take up studies again means advising them in laying out their professional goals, helping to set up remedial study units if necessary and counselling them in getting a job whether for the fi rst time or for re-employment.

The CUFCo is the University’s lifelong learning division, specifi cally responsible for providing opportunities for those seeking to take up studies again, including the unemployed, those on leave of absence, those in retraining, or those seeking equivalency for life experience.
