“Obtain an Edubadge Global Acting”

An Edubadge is a digital certificate in higher education for certain achievements. Edubadges can reflect standard school achievements as well as extracurricular achievements. Since 2022 students can obtain an extracurricular Edubadge in Global Acting.

Students can achieve an Edubadge for Global Acting by engaging in activities that help them acquire additional knowledge, skills and experience working in an international and intercultural context. They can build up complete portfolio throughout their education at FHICT, while participating in various activities at home and at international universities.
Students can apply for a badge by submitting their portfolio to the Global Acting examinators (Samuil Angelov, Roopali Gupta or Lucienne Wijgergangs). The portfolio should consist of a description of the international and intercultural study components and reflection on them and be sent by e-mail to one of the examiners.
