The certificate programme gives you the opportunity to acquire application-oriented and at the same time scientifically sound expertise in a subject area without having to take up an entire study course.

All modules are conducted entirely in English and basically online. Some modules may include supplementary in-class lectures. The online learning environment fosters your media and virtual social skills systematically, and due to the English-language teaching and the international background of the students, your language and intercultural skills are also developed.

Latest technologies enable a sophisticated distance learning programme. E-lectures, web-based trainings, interactive exercises and the use of the Moodle learning management system ensure that self-study is flexible and oriented towards individual learning processes.

The certificate programme lasts one semester per module. The university certificate serves as proof of your acquired qualifications for employers and at the same time it demonstrates your interest and motivation for part-time further education activities.
Each module of the certificate programme comprises 5 credit points; 25 hours of work are required per credit point. This corresponds to a total of 125 hours of work per module, spread over a period of approx. 4 months. However, the actual effort required depends to a large extent on your individual learning requirements and your learning pace. Experience has shown that you do not have to invest all your free time in part-time studies.
Each module is completed with a portfolio examination, which consists of various semester-related elements (e.g. knowledge tests, smaller seminar papers, case studies, practical tasks, etc.).
