Intercultural Skills Certificate
Globalisation and increasing mobility worldwide are making the demands on the labour market ever greater. The cultural mixing of society also requires a sensitisation to and discussion of various cultural influences. International and intercultural competences, experience abroad and foreign language skills are no longer just key qualifications in an international environment, but are also more in demand than ever on the domestic labour market.
In order to expand the scope of the students' linguistic and intercultural competences and to make this clearly visible to the outside world for the purpose of improved employability, students at the UAS Technikum Wien can acquire the "Intercultural Skills Certificate" administered by the International Office.
How do I get the certificate?
Students complete various international and intercultural activities during their studies at the UAS Technikum Wien, which are deposited with so-called Circoins. In order to obtain the certificate, at least 15 of these Circoins must be accumulated. The number of circoins assigned to an activity serves as a rough indicator of the workload associated with completing this activity.
Students wishing to obtain the certificate must enrol in a Moodle course administered by the International Office. This enrolment is considered as enrolment in the certificate program.
If you have any questions regarding the Intercultural Skills Certificate, please contact Mr. Florian Ellinger from the International Office:
The certificate is supported by the City of Vienna as part of the IoCEST project (Internationalization of the Curricula in Engineering, Environmental, Smart Cities and Sport Technologies).
