Latin to English translations [Non-PRO]
Latin term or phrase: cand. rer. pol.
It is an abbreviation of a title.
In a German certificate it says: " Herr cand. rer. pol. XXXX hat an meiner Klausur ... teilgenommen.

It would also help me if someone could tell me the long version of the Latin expression.

A similar problem: "stud. rer. pol."

Thanks for any suggestions

English translation:candidatus rerum politicarum
Explanation:
It refers to a Master candidate in social sciences.
See, for example:
"... first grade degree, candidatus magisterii (cand.mag.-degree) and can be obtained after four years of full time study. At the postgraduate level there are two grade degrees: the second grade degree, candidatus rerum politicarum (cand.polit.-degree), which can be obtained after further two years of full time study, and the degree of doctor rerum politicarum (dr. polit.-degree), which can be obtained after another three years' of full time study."
I assume "stud. rer. pol." means "studente rerum politicarum", i.e. the undergraduate level.
