Whether you are planning to enroll in an educational program, looking for a job or work experience abroad, it is very important that you present your skills and abilities in a clear and structured manner.

Europass can help you to:

  • Present your skills and qualifications in a way that is easily comparable and recognizable in all of Europe
  • Enroll in more easily a mobility program in Europe

Europass consists of five documents:

  • Europass curriculum vitae (CV) and Europass Language Passport, which you have to write or fill out yourself
  • Europass Certificate Supplement, Europass Diploma Supplement and Europass Mobility, which are issued by relevant institutions

Europass Curriculum Vitae (CV)

If you want to use the Europass, you may begin by filling out the Europass CV. It can help you emphasize your skills and abilities, but it can also be paired with other Europass documents. The Europass CV has now replaced the EU CV, created in 2002.

The Europass CV can be used in two ways. By following these directions and samples, you can fill out the on-line form and have the actual document sent to you electronically afterwards. You can also download the empty set of documents (form, instructions and the cover page) to your computer and use them afterwards.
