Certificate for Intercultural Communication und Competence - ZiKK

 

The Certificate for Intercultural Communication and Competence (ZiKK) is an extra-curricular offer directed at all students of the University of Hildesheim. The certificate recognises the reflection of experiences and commitment in the field of intercultural communication, which is one of the central prerequisites for the development of intercultural competence. The ZiKK is based on the proof of accomplishments which are achieved in addition to the regular requirements of the respective course of study within the period of study.

 

The ZiKK is made up of three components, within the framework of which individual focal points of interest can be set:

  1. Intercultural experiences: The intercultural experience to be proven for the ZiKK can be gained through study-related stays abroad or in language courses in Germany and abroad.
  2. Intercultural commitment: Intercultural commitment means being involved in the mentoring of international students, participating in internationally or interculturally oriented student initiatives or introducing the University of Hildesheim to a partner university during a semester abroad.
  3. Intercultural Reflection: The reflection of experiences and commitment is again carried out in the intercultural training modules offered by the International Office within the framework of the interdisciplinary key competencies.

A control slip (Laufzettel) serves as proof of the services rendered. Laufzettel - ZiKK
