The vacation program run by the University of Freiburg’s Center for Key Qualifications (ZfS) aims to whet students’ appetites for current issues and creative applications in its fields of Management, Communication, Media and Data Management. Online registration for Bachelor’s and Law students opens on 10 July 2019. The process of allocation of the remaining places is open to all students enrolled at the University of Freiburg from 29 July 2019.

Awakening students’ desire to write and to express themselves: That is the aim of “Kreatives Schreiben – Schreib- und Erzähltechniken” (Creative Writing). In “Konflikte systemisch verstehen, regeln, lösen – unter besonderer Berücksichtigung der Mediation” (Systematic Understanding, Regulation and Resolution of Conflicts), the participants practice methods of respectful interaction and the search for solutions which also protect their own interests.

In “Ganzheitliches Projektmanagement – Grundlagen und praktische Anwendungen” (Holistic Project Management - Basics and Practical Applications), students learn to use new project planning tools and develop their strengths while attaining project goals. “Grundlagen und Praxis des Prozessmanagements” (Basics and Practices in Process Management) provides insights into business processes and raises awareness of how to deal with change.

In the field of media, students in “Fake News und Co - Grundlagen der angewandten Medienkritik mit Schwerpunkt auf Onlinemedien und Bewegtbildern” (Fake News and Misinformation) deal with the integrity of information and how to find it. They use film analysis to recognize how digital media work, thereby learning critical media analysis. Students wishing to take a journalistic approach to their own areas of interest and to communicate them to the right audience will find the necessary creative space in “Medien in der Praxis - Mitarbeit in einer der studentischen Editaktionen von uniCROSS (Online/Radio/TV)” (Practical Media).

In the IT class "Digital Publishing kompakt - Grundlagen grafischer Gestaltung" (Digital Publishing), students can get creative and apply their new knowledge of publishing programs, using apps for tablets and smartphones. “Informations- und Datenmanagement – Grundlagen im Umgang mit Kundendatenbanken und CRM-Systemen” (Information and Data Management) teaches you how to process company data, especially customer-related data, and how to develop efficient data management.

Even during the summer break, a voluntary internship of four to six weeks can help you learn new skills while earning ECTS points: The unit "Praktikum plus - Kompetenztraining und Berufsfeldorientierung” (Internship) enables students to gain insights into potential careers and develop with personal competence, while taking their first steps in professional orientation.
