The Certificate of Intercultural Competence (Zertifikat für interkulturelle Kompetenz – ZiK) is also a networking project. It aims to boost the visibility of the TU Braunschweig's many international and intercultural activities and facilitate participation.
ZiK credits are not credit points. There is no upper limit for ZiK credits, all eligible activities will be listed in the certificate. The ambassador component and the academic component are mandatory and require a minimum of 10 ZiK credits each. International experience is optional. Furthermore, you are required to complete two modules of reflection on international encounters. The requirements for the Certificate of Intercultural Competence can be met in 4-6 semesters, although there are no maximum or minimum time limits.
