Childhood Studies
& Children's Rights

Within the frame of the International Virtual Academic Collaboration Project DAAD, led by the University of Applied Sciences Potsdam, three online modules on Children's Rights are offered by a consortium of international partner universites from across Australia, Europe and Latin America.

Modules will be offered from autumn 2021 to spring 2022.

The modules can be studied completely online. For those students who are available and interested, we are offering an Introductory Summer School in Potsdam, Germany from August 25th to September 3rd, 2021.

The modules are offered as a part of Children's Rights study programmes at the partner universities. They are open to students in general, depending on availability of places.

The development of the modules is underway. Partners have assumed responsibility for the individual modules and are structuring the different sessions of the modules. The modules will be offered via MS Teams in order to make sure that all attendees/students have access to all parts of the modules. Each student will set up his or her own e-portfolio for documentation of their learning progress as part of the modules themselves.

Our modules are open to anyone who is interested in the topics .
