Admission Requirements

Participants in the FUB-ContinuEd program must be at least 18 years old.

Participants need to possess language abilities in speaking and writing in the language of instruction on the Upper Intermediate Level (at least B2). Participants may be required to show proof of these abilities, and/or they may be tested before the start of the course.

If participants fail to demonstrate the academic and linguistic skills required for their chosen FUB-ContinuEd course, this may negatively affect said participant’s course participation and at worst lead to exclusion from the course. The decision for the latter will be made in consultation with the instructor, the participant, and the FUB-ContinuEd Program Director.

Our certificate courses are designed for learners at all stages of the life-long learning process – young professionals, graduates, postgraduates, experienced professionals from all fields looking for additional qualification, advanced students, or retired professionals. While we therefore do not demand proof of a formal degree, participants in our courses should possess a certain degree of academic or professional experience, analytical skills, and self-learning discipline so they can follow the course and the assigned readings, deal with the type of questions posed, contribute meaningful insights and analyses to the discussions in class, and complete the assignments given by the instructors by applying systematic, structured, cohesive, and creative thinking, alone or in collaboration with others.

Attendance of the live sessions is essential for your successful and meaningful completion of a course. To receive a certificate for any course, you will need to attend at least two-thirds of the live sessions. These live sessions will be combined with additional material and intensive work through the online course platform, both individually and in groups. Please see the specific course requirements for the various assignments.
