CIC = Certificate of International Competence


Why? According to a study from the DAAD (Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst) in cooperation with the Institut der Deutschen Wirtschaft Köln employers appreciate very much if graduates have international experiences: International mobility and practical experiences connected to the individual study program sharpen one’s international and intercultural competences as well as prepare for future global working life. Experience in a foreign country help also the personal development and broaden one´s horizon.

What? Every experience you made in an international frame will be subsumed under the Certificate of International Competence, which will confirm an international portfolio for your CV: Semesters at Universities abroad, language courses, internships in foreign companies as well as international commitment at Universities.


How? To acquire the Certificate of International Competence you need to participate in at least 3 of the following 4 modules. If you collected enough of the requirements, please submit your documents to the International Office at your study location of Hochschule Fresenius. Together with all required certificates, you will receive the Certificate of International Competence.
