Writing is a key qualification both in studies and in a career. In order to strategically support students' writing improvement goals, the Writing Center offers the opportunity for students to receive the certificate "Zusatzqualifikation: Schreibkompetenz" (Further Qualification: Writing Competence). By completing 24 study units, or "Arbeitseinhaiten/AE", (1 AE = 45 min.) of workshops, individual writing consultations, and an E-Learning module during your studies, your writing competence will be systematically strengthened. As a final aspect of the program, your acquired writing competencies will be reflected upon in a final report (approx. 400 words). The required study units to receive the certificate can be collected over the course of multiple semesters.
The certificate requirements are as follows:
- 5 Workshops totalling 10 AE
- Individual Writing Consulations totalling 6 AE
- E-Learning Module totaling 8 AE
- Reflective Final Report, length of 400 words
As proof of completing each element of the certificate, we provide a tracking slip that you fill out for every completed part. At the end, the tracking slip is turned into the Writing Center along with your reflective final report (contact). Then we can award you the certificate "Zusatzqualifikation: Schreibkompetenz". Proof of participation for individual workshops will, in the future, only be provided upon request. In case of questions or for further information, we are happy to hear from you (contact).
