High-educational certificates

The certificates indicate your participation on a didactic training program.

At the University of Bayreuth you can acquire three certificate levels.

All certificates prove your participation in high-educational events and are a confirmation of your high-educational qualification.

Surrender of the certificates Einklappen

Certificates are usually officially handed over twice a year towards the end of the semester. This presentation takes place in a ceremonial setting, in which the representative for university teaching, Prof. Dr. Gabriela Paule, and the Vice President for Teaching and Students, Prof. Dr. Martin Huber, also take part. This will provide an opportunity for exchange and informal discussions. The handover will take about one hour.

The handover will be photographed and a group photo will be attached to a press release for the Bayreuth campus magazine "ubt aktuell".

After applying for the certificate, you will be informed about the further procedure by e-mail and invited to the handover.

​Recognition of working units form external (highter-educational) further education measuresEinklappen

You can include work units from other events you have attended in the certificate. Please note the following points:


  • The didactic reference of the event must be clearly evident.
  • The event must be assignable to one of our didactic areas.
  • The duration, institution and, if possible, the speaker must be proven – usually by a certificate of participation.
  • Please note that we only recognize continuing education courses, not academic achievements.
  • A maximum of half of the AE for the certificate may be earned from external services.
  • The event must not have taken place more than 6 years ago.


  • Please create a "manually created seminar" under "My ProfiLehrePlus" -> "Visited seminars". There you enter all required data (please make sure that you spell it correctly!).
  • Select "PD Dr. Frank Meyer" as "Responsible Coordinator". 
  • Upload the certificate of participation as .PDF or .JPG, please note the "Requirements" above.

With the recognition we orientate ourselves to the standards of the German Society for University Didactics (dghd).
