At the Bergische Universität Wuppertal, a "Europe Certificate" can be acquired through slightly extended study achievements in the subject area "Europe/European Integration". The certificate aims to facilitate graduates' access to professional activities with a European and/or international orientation. Traditional and current questions on EU integration dynamics and BREXIT are addressed from an interdisciplinary perspective.
The acquisition of the certificate requires the successful participation in an interdisciplinary seminar and three Europe-related courses totalling at least 12 credit points (LP), each with a graded performance record, as well as the successful participation in a Europe-related summer academy of the Gustav Stresemann Institute in Bonn (10-day, approx. 350 € participation or accommodation fee). The LPs must be acquired within a maximum of four consecutive semesters.
Participating subjects are: History, Economics, Law and Political Science. One subject should be in the student's field of study. The courses assigned to the European Certificate are indicated in the announcements of the four participating subjects.
Academic work already completed in one's own field of study in the above-mentioned areas can be recognised. Course work completed at foreign or European universities can be recognised upon application.
The European Certificate can be acquired by Bachelor's and Master's students of the University of Wuppertal. Bachelor students can only enrol for the European Certificate from the third semester onwards.
