The EurIdentity Certificate imparts broad knowledge about Europe and European contexts. Through cross-border group projects and course visits in the Greater Region, students can also deepen their intercultural skills and expand their multilingualism. Upon successful completion, participants receive a certificate of acquired competencies that strengthen their qualification for the international labor market.

The EurIdentity Certificate can be taken by all htw saar students, regardless of their degree program.

The EurIdentity Certificate consists of the Basic Level and the Advanced Level:

  1. E-learning module "EurIdentity Basic Level: Foundations of Europe" with basics about Europe, the EU and Europe-related topics (6 ECTS). The course language is English. The course starts in the winter semester.
  2. Building on this, students get a deeper insight with the "EurIdentity Certificate: Advanced Level" (18 ECTS) and gain additional experience in international exchange by means of a foreign mobility within the Greater Region. The course language is German, English or French, depending on the courses chosen. Enrollment in the Advanced Level courses is possible from the winter semester 2023/24.

After successfully passing 24 ECTS from Basic and Advanced Level modules, participants receive a certificate proving the additional qualification.

The module "EurIdentity Basic Level: Foundations of Europe" (6 ECTS) can also be taken as a stand-alone module, independent of the EurIdentity Certificate and the Advanced Level:

- Bachelor students can choose the module as a compulsory elective subject, provided that their degree program includes a compulsory elective subject and the module is mentioned in the list of elective subjects.

- Master students can take the module as an optional elective. Upon successful completion, the module "EurIdentity Basic Level: Foundations of Europe" will be listed in the Transcript of Records.
