Information from GAUSS & GAUSS Career Service

Call for course registrations – September 2020

Information regarding methods and professional skills courses in times of the COVID-19 pandemic: please check the updated overviews of Methods and Professional Skills courses. Courses already announced for July – September will, as far as possible, only be offered online – in that case the corresponding participants will be contacted by our Offices or the course instructors. Cancelled courses might be offered later this year, in case courses can take place again with participation in presence; courses that are offered twice a year (spring and autumn) will probably only be offered in autumn. Please check our webpage for updates.

Registration for methods and professional skills courses held online in September 2020 will be open from 1 July.Logo_GAUSS&GGNB You can register for courses taking place in September from 1-20 July; the slots will be allocated on 25 July.

Please check carefully for scheduling conflicts. Registration after 20 July is not possible, please do not contact the course instructors. All communication regarding the courses should be via the GAUSS or GGNB Office. In case you have registered but then need to cancel a course, you can still do so in StudIP before the end of July. From 1 August your participation will be binding and cancellation is only possible with a statement by your supervisor or your doctor’s attestation via an email to the office, not to the course instructors.
