A semester abroad during the MA KSM?
KSM students have the opportunity to go abroad during their 2nd or 3rd semesters. Information on the partner universities and the exact procedures can be found on the pages of the International Center.
KSM students who spend a semester abroad as part of their KSM Masters and want to transfer credits earned at another institution into their transcript of records at the Europa-Universität Flensburg are asked to follow the procedures established for the BA Bildungswissenschaften.
After returning from your abroad semester and for the transfer of your credits the following documents must be provided:
- The transcript of records of the university abroad
- Your current transcript of records of the Europa-Universität Flensburg
- The official credit application form provided by the Europa-Universität Flensburg
Advice for KSM-specific issues (please bring along all listed documents!): Dr. Sibylle Machat
The credit transfer itself is carried out by the International Center of the Europa-Universität Flensburg, which also provides you with all relevant documents.
Studierende absolvieren im Laufe ihres Studiums entweder zwei kleine Praktika (je 180h), davon mindestens eines im Ausland, oder ein großes Praktikum (360h) im Ausland. Die Studierenden weisen die Praktika durch eine Tätigkeitsbescheinigung des Arbeitgebers sowie durch einen ca. einseitigen Erfahrungsbericht (ca. 500 Wörter) nach, der ihren Kompetenzzugewinn reflektiert, als Orientierungshilfe für andere KSM-Studierende dient und für die Veröffentlichung auf der KSM-Homepage gedacht ist. Praktika, die vor dem Beginn des Master KSM absolviert wurden, können zur Hälfte anerkannt werden. (Modulkatalog KSM)
A rough translation reads: "Students complete either two small internships (180h each), at least one of which is abroad, or one large internship (360h) abroad during the course of their studies. Students provide evidence of the internships in the form of an attestation of activity from the employer as well as an experience report of approximately one page (approx. 500 words), which reflects their competence gain, serves as a guide for other KSM students and is intended for publication on the KSM homepage. Internships completed prior to the start of the KSM Master's degree can be given half credit."
In order to have a completed internship entered in your Transcript of Records, please submit (a copy of) a qualified reference letter regarding the nature and duration of your internship (this needs to be written by your employer), your experience report, as well as a completed Application for Recognition to the KSM program director (Dr. Sibylle Machat). Ideally, submit letters(s) of recommendation, experience report, and application for recognition together as PDF files in one e-mail. The signature on the application for recognition can be done digitally in the PDF, so you do not need to print & scan it. Submissions in paper form are also acceptable.
