For the CAS and DAS, 6 e-learning modules with face-to-face sessions, performance audits and exams at the end of each module are mandatory. Each module will be accredited with 3 ECTS-points.

The CAS requires the completion of all modules (18 ECTS). The DAS (35 ECTS) requires the completion of all modules, documented scientific achievements (e.g.  a publication in a peer-review journal) and active participation at conferences, retreats or relevant workshops during participation to the programme.


After successful participation and depending on the achieved ECTS-points, the University of Bern (and participating Universities) awards  the degree “Certificate of Advanced Studies” (CAS) or “Diploma of Advanced Studies” (DAS). The corresponding certificates will list the content of the programme and achievements of participants.
