Our tip!

Give your application documents a special international touch by obtaining the Certificate of International Competencies!

Certificate of International Competencies

Stays abroad, language skills and intercultural competencies are becoming increasingly important in job applications. The HAW Hamburg International Office and the Career Planning Centre offer HAW Hamburg students the opportunity to document and certify these activities through the Certificate of International Competencies. You can have those activities certified that have enabled you to acquire key intercultural skills during your studies – for example, volunteer work, language courses, or various workshops and training sessions offered by the Career Planning Centre and the International Office.
