Cross-faculty key competency modules

Key competencies at the University of Göttingen are taught at three levels: through modules in the subject discipline or faculty, through the cross-faculty modules offered by many subject disciplines, and through key competency modules offered by central institutions of the University (e.g. ZESS, the Centre for Languages and Key Qualifications, studIT, the student IT services). As a result, students can acquire key competencies either integrally to their subject, across subject disciplines or independently.

The Student and Academic Services coordinates cross-faculty key competency modules and in collaboration with the faculties carries out pre-assessment for the Central Committee for Teaching and Learning zKLS .

In addition, the department further develops the range of cross-faculty key competency modules based on the findings from student, graduate and employer surveys as well as on feedback from the faculties.
