Evaluation and assessment of each certificate course on the basis of a quality report to be provided by the institution offering the course (chair, institute, etc.). The report consists of details pertaining to the subject-related concept, the course composition, the pursued level of qualification, the utilised resources, and finally, the assessment and evaluation of relevant documents, e.g. course content, evaluation sheets, and examples of tests.
Academic certificate courses leading to the official certificate of the RWTH Aachen University undergo a comprehensive quality assurance process. This certification process consisting of two stages reflects the "academic value" of these courses:
A visitation and inspection of the infrastructure of the institution offering the course is conducted. Especially, the utilised resources, the equipment of the institution, structure and implementation of the further education programme, support of the participants, and the internal quality assurance concept are hereby appraised.
After the certificate course has been evaluated both technically and in regard to its content, the new RWTH certificates can be awarded following the course. Moreover, the certificate course may now yield the RWTH Aachen’s seal of quality for academic further education.
The RWTH Aachen University’s certificate features the following information and characteristics:
- Course title
- Name of the scientific director and the main lecturer
- Participant’s name
- Credit points
- Qualification level
- Number of certificate and water mark
- Confirmation of the passed examination and grade
- ECTS grading scale
- Grade based on the ECTS grading scale (if required)
After the Academic Certificate a certificate supplement is provided:
- Module description and contents
- Detailed description of educational objectives in terms of competences
For further quality assurance we recommend certification by an independent external certification body (ASIIN Consult, FIBAA Consult) or by an independent inter-trade or professional organisation.
Through certification, the attainability of the defined requirements, of the defined educational goals, and of the pursued profile of qualification in regard to the deployed resources is confirmed.
The academic certificate courses of the RWTH Aachen University are compatible with a variety of living circumstances and individual education and career goals. Therefore, they can accommodate various educational biographies in the context of life long learning.
