Career Development and Employability

Module description and learning oucome

The new module "Career Development and Employability" offers the possibility to participate in individual events and lectures that are conducive to one's own career orientation, career entry or career development. Thus, events and lectures can be attended for which there are otherwise no credit possibilities in CP. With the attendance of these events so-called CDE points are collected (explanation below).

For example, there is a new lecture series with practice "Career Development, Employability and Future Skills" where you can collect 2 CDE points for each slot you took part. But there are multiple other opportunities you can choose for acquiring CDE points, e.g. by other university institutions like the Career Center, the Studierwerkstatt or by the Alumni Association. But there are also external providers who offer events or workshops which can be recognized.

How are CDE points counted?

1 CDE = 45-60 minutes of participation in an event or workshop OR 1 CP equals to 9 CDE points.

How many CDE do I have to collect to get CP?

min. 27 for 3 CP (BA GS)
min 54 for 6 CP (MA elective module)

Is there only the lecture series to collect CDE points?

No! There are many other possibilities to collect CDE points (events of the Alumni Association, the Studierwerkstatt, the Career Center and many more). More information here.

Do I have to collect all CDE points to earn CP in one semester?

No, CDE points can also be earned across semesters.

How does the registration of the CP take place?

An examination registration is only carried out when all CDE points required for the CP have been collected, this does not have to be in the current semester. To do this, register via VAK-Nr. 07-B37-4-71-01 (Bachelor: 3 CP) or via VAK-Nr. 07-M37-10-02-53 (Master: 6 CP) at the usual deadlines via PABO.

Are students from other programs/departments allowed to participate?

Yes, it has been coordinated with FB03 and FB04, since this module can be recognized as an elective/elective requirement. In case of doubt, please always ask your own study center.
