Faculty Certificates for Elective Studies

Core Specification

Students enrolled for Diploma courses at the Faculty of Management, Economics and Social Sciences (WiSo Faculty) may obtain records of achievement in one of the elective areas defined as such by the pertinent regulations. These achievements are not cited in the Diploma degree certificate, but are acknowledged in a Faculty Certificate signed by the incumbent Dean.

The WiSo Student Service is responsible for issuing Faculty Certificates; it checks eligibility conditions and arranges for the Dean’s signature.

Conditions of Issuance

Studies in an elective area are deemed successfully completed if the pertinent records of achievement have been acquired in accordance with the regulations governing elective areas of study

Once you have obtained all necessary records of achievement, please submit the following documents to the WiSo Student Service:

  •  Informal application for issuance of a Faculty Certificate in an elective area (specifying the respective area)
  •  Your achievement and attendance records from the elective area (originals)
  •  Copy of your valid student ID
  •  Specification of the date and country of your birth
  •  Your contact data (address, phone number, e-mail address) 

You can submit the documents in the following ways:

  • Personally during consultation hours
  • In an envelope addressed to us and placed in the red letter-box in the sub-level of the Main Building (map)

A staff member of the WiSo Course Guidance Centre will subsequently contact you when your documents are ready to be collected. On that occasion, please bring along an official photo ID (e.g. personal ID or passport) to prove your identity.
Students from non-EU countries should first consult the International Office.
