Please fill out this form if you are looking to receive credit points for your BA degree at the JFKI that were obtained by attending courses at universities other than Freie Universität Berlin, or from departments and institutes other than the Kennedy Institute.
The form first has to be signed by a member of the department in which you seek credit (“Testat”). Please bring transcripts, syllabi, or other relevant documents. Afterwards, all documents have to be submitted to Prof. Dr. Sebastian Jobs or his colleague Prof. Dr. Sönke Kunkel for final review. Submissions can be made by mail, during his office hours, or handed in at the office of the History department, where students can pick up them up about a week later.
Please keep the original form in your files and hand in a copy at the Office of Examination and Auditing (Prüfungsbüro).
It is possible to convert credits for classes taken at the Kennedy Institute (e.g. conversion of an advanced disciplinary seminar into a disciplinary orientation seminar). Please use the same form as the one for accredidation of courses from other universities. As in the case described above, the form has to be signed by a member of the department first ("Testat"), and afterwards by Prof. Dr. Sebastian Jobs.
Students have the possibility to receive credit points for the internship portion of the General Professional Skills (ABV) course of study. A maximum of 5 credit points can be awarded for previous professional experience. Please use the same form as the one for courses from other universities. To see if you are eligible to receive credit, please see Mia Yoo during her office hours.
If you complete an internship during your studies at the Freie Universität, please register for one of the internship modules in Campus Management. Please direct questions concerning your internship at the Career Service.
