EUTOPIA Certificate of Internationalisation (EUCI)

The EUTOPIA Certificate of Internationalisation (EUCI) encourages, recognises, and rewards students' international learning. You can enrol now using the form below.

If you're a registered student at one of the universities in the EUTOPIA Alliance, you can complete this certificate and gain recognition for your international experiences and competencies. Note that this certificate does not carry academic credits, though it may be eligible for inclusion on your diploma supplement or equivalent.

What do I need to do?

  • Enrol using the form below
  • Attend a series of virtual seminars
  • Compile your reflective portfolio

If your portfolio achieves a 'pass' grade, you will be awarded the EUTOPIA Certificate of Internationalisation.

In the current academic year (2023/24) a limited number of places will be offered, and participants will have the opportunity to contribute to the development and creation of learning materials.

Please contact the programme convenor, Lewis Beer lewis.beer@warwick.ac.uk, if you have any questions.


Activities

To complete the EUCI, you should have participated in a range of international activities. As a guideline, we recommend at least 30 hours of activities, but you should discuss this with the programme convenor to find the right approach for you.

Eligible activities might include:

  • Opportunities to study or work abroad
  • Study programmes with an international focus
  • One-off events or workshops you attended in another country
  • Language-learning experiences
  • International activities you engaged in during your time at school, or on a previous degree programme

You may wish to look at students' portfolios from previous versions of the EUCI for inspiration. Please contact the programme convenor, Lewis Beer lewis.beer@warwick.ac.uk, to discuss the eligibility of your international activities.


Seminars

To support your reflective practice and your compilation of a reflective portfolio, you will be able to attend three online 90-minute seminars in which you can discuss your international experiences with your fellow students, and with the guidance of EUTOPIA tutors.

These virtual seminars will run in three versions in 2024, to allow for participation from a wide range of students:

  • Cohort 1: 08-26 April [completed]
  • Cohort 2: 06-24 May [applications closed]
  • Cohort 3: 08-26 July

You can indicate your preferred cohort in the form below. Each week, you will also be able to choose between two different times:

  • Tuesday 10:00-11:30 BST (11:00-12:30 CEST)
  • Thursday 16:00-17:30 BST (17:00-18:30 CEST)

Further details about these sessions and how to register for them will be sent to you after you enrol using the form below.


Reflective Portfolio

To demonstrate your international learning, you will compile a reflective portfolio which can include essays, artworks, and multimedia elements such as a video diary. It is expected that your portfolio will amount to roughly 2000 words (or equivalent).

In your portfolio, you will be expected to fulfil the following two learning outcomes:

  • Reflective: reflect deeply on the issues discussed, measuring personal development and considering multiple points of view
  • Intercultural: demonstrate awareness of relations between different national cultures and languages, and the ability to reflect on these

Please note that the EUCI is facilitated through a collaboration between all the universities of the EUTOPIA Alliance. The application form is located on the University of Warwick website, but expressions of interest may be reviewed by members of staff from any of the EUTOPIA partners.


Enrol now

The seminars for Cohort 3 (upcoming) will run on 08-26 July, with a choice between Tuesday (10:00-11:30 BST) and Thursday (16:00-17:30 BST) each week. Please indicate if you are available for these. If you are not, we will be in touch to ask if you are available for seminars later this summer. (required)
