For Host Institutions

Off University’s online courses are taught by scholars at risk and co-hosted by several universities in Germany. As a host institution, you can support an endangered scholar and act as a quality manager for one or more of our seminars.

Your role here is to certify the amount of working hours that students spend in fulfilling the requirements of a course that is usually - but not always - independent from the existing curriculum at your institution. Upon successful completion of a course, you can provide participants with a certificate that indicates the acquired number of credit points (ECTS) on a transcript of records.

As a host institution, you agree to be mentioned as host university of the course publicly and may also assist in the promotion of the course. If possible, you can show your engagement for academic freedom through contracting the scholar at risk directly and offering them an institutional affiliation.
