The modules are designed according to the principle of blended learning. The presentations primarily serve as an introduction to the topics, reflection, exercises and exchange among each other. Between the presentations, the students and participants work independently. They are supported by a learning platform and accompanied by teachers.

Attendance and self-study are in a ratio of 1:4, i.e. on average 80 hours of learning time for preparation and follow-up are added to the 20 hours of seminar events in Potsdam or Berlin.

We recommend that you bring your own laptop to the classroom sessions.

All module courses of the subject modules 1, 3 and 5 are assessed with 4 ECTS credits each. Participants who additionally successfully pass the module examination with a further 4 credits receive an overall certificate for a total of 20 credits.

Participants who complete all courses of a module have the option of completing the module as a whole with the module examination. If the examination is also passed successfully, participants receive a university certificate.

The continuing education programmes of the University of Applied Sciences Potsdam are recognised according to the educational exemption regulations in Brandenburg and Berlin.

In principle, it is possible to apply for successfully completed modules to be recognised as academic achievements and - if all admission requirements are met - to enrol in a higher semester. This requires that a study place is available at that time.

The fee for the module courses is 770 euros each. The total fee for an entire module with four module courses is 4 x 770 = 3,080 euros.

In addition to participation in the teaching dates, this amount includes all documentation and, if applicable, further support services as well as the use of the learning platform. The training is exempt from VAT.

A fee of 100 euros is charged for taking the module examination (after attending all four module courses from modules 1, 3 and 5).
