The EurIdentity Certificate provides broad knowledge on European topics and the EU. It gives students the opportunity to acquire valuable skills for the international employment market and deepen their intercultural competencies. Upon successful completion, participants receive a certificate of acquired competencies that strengthens their qualification for the international employment market.

The EurIdentity Certificate Program is open to all htw saar students, including ERASMUS students, regardless of their degree program.

UniGR - University of the Greater Region

Within the UniGR university network, htw saar students can take advantage of the study offers of the partner universities in Lorraine, Luxembourg, Liège, Kaiserslautern, Trier and the Saarland University free of charge. This requires a no-fee formal enrollment as an UniGR-student. The htw saar grants a travel allowance for attending events at the UniGR partner universities via mobility funding (please contact the UniGR officer at the htw saar to apply).

The EurIdentity Certificate consists of two levels - Level 1 and Level 2

  1. Level 1: The e-learning module “EurIdentity Basic Level: Foundations of Europe” with basics about Europe (6 ECTS). The course is held in English. The course takes place in the winter and summer semester.
  2. Level 2: Building on this, students dive deeper into subjects about Europe in the "EurIdentity: Advanced Level" (18 ECTS). The course language is German, English or French, depending on the courses chosen. A study mobility within the Greater Region is mandatory.

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

    Level 1: E-Learning Module „EurIdentity Basic Level: Foundations of Europe“ (6 ECTS)

    The module consists of 12 units on topics about Europe and the EU, which are designed by experts from all seven partner universities. The module consists of video material in combination with independent reading and concludes with a multiple-choice exam at htw saar.

    By the way: 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. It is also suited for ERASMUS students.
    • 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 participant’s transcript of records. In addition, participants receive a certificate of participation from UniGR.
