The evening secondary school is run in the form of evening classes at secondary schools and community schools. There you can acquire the Hauptschulabschluss, the Realschulabschluss and the erweiterte Realschulabschluss.

The course usually lasts two and a half years (preliminary course, 1st and 2nd school year).
