  • How can I apply for the certificate?

    After you have successfully passed the examination for your elective subjects, send the elective subject certificates (you receive them automatically via Learning Campus) to the Examinations Office so that the courses can be entered in the Transcript of Records (ToR). Once the grades have been entered, please download an extract of the ToR and send it to Manuela Zimmermann.

  • Can a subject be recognised twice if more than one certificate is applied for?

    No, completed lectures are only recognised on one certificate.

  • Can a practical semester completed abroad also be recognised?

    Yes, a practical semester can be recognised for the certificate as long as it was completed in a non-German speaking country.

  • What is written on the certificate?

    The certificate indicates the acquisition of additional intercultural skills. The voluntary nature of this additional achievement, as well as the completed lecture, semester abroad or tutoring activity are explicitly stated. Grades or evaluations are not given, however.

  • Do the achievements for the certificate have to be completed within a certain time frame?

    No, the achievements can be completed throughout the entire degree programme, but they must have been completed by the end of your degree at the latest in order to get the certificate.

  • Can subjects that have been completed as elective subjects (AWPM, FWPM) be recognised for the certificates?

    A maximum of one elective subject, that was already successfully completed as part of compulsory study, can be recognised for the certificate. An elective subject cannot be recognised for more than one certificate.
