The University of Freiburg’s Center for Key Qualifications (ZfS) also offers practical compact courses in the fields of management, communication, media and data processing when no lecture courses are being held. Online booking for Bachelor’s and law students starts on 21st January 2019. From 5th February 2019 it is possible for all students who are registered at the university to take up remaining spaces.

The Management department course “Bewerbungskompetenzen – mit Erfolg in den Beruf starten” offering techniques for job applications gets students ready for every stage in the job application process. In “Projektmanagement” (Project Management) or “Selbstorganisation und Zeitmanagement” (Self-organization and Time Management), participants train and develop useful techniques.

Communication department courses such as “Rhetorik und Präsentation” (Rhetoric and Presentation) or “Lösungsorientierte Verhandlungsführung” (Solution-oriented Negotiations) are an opportunity to practice communication approaches or find solutions by analyzing real-life case studies. Anyone who wants to know more about narrative perspectives and their effect should try “Szenischen Erzählen” (Dramatic Narration) to try out how to produce tension and then use these skills orally and in writing.

How can social media be used in a professional context? Students in the Media department learn more about the basics of social media careers in “Grundlagen Social Media – neue Berufe vom Influencer bis zum Digitalstrategen und die demokratische Herausforderung”. The “Informationen suchen, bewerten und präsentieren wie ein Profi” course focuses on one of the key competencies for the digital world: finding, analyzing and presenting information.

On the “Print & Online Publishing – Grafische Gestaltung an PC und mobilen Geräten” course, participants learn how to work with publishing programs and develop their knowledge about apps for tablet and smartphone. And on “Grundlagen der Programmiersprache Python”, students learn how to solve problems faster and with minimal programming using the Python programming language.
