Call for course registrations – October 2021

In times of the COVID-19 pandemic it is quite possible that courses have to be cancelled or will be switched from presence to online at short notice.

Please check the updated overviews of Methods and Professional Skills courses.

The registration for methods and professional skills courses held in October 2021 will be open from 1 August 2021.Logo_GAUSS&GGNB

You can register online via Stud.IP for courses taking place in October from 1-20 August; the slots will be allocated on 25 August.

Please check carefully for scheduling conflicts. Registration after 20 August 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 Stud.IP before the end of August. From 1 September 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 our offices, not to the course instructors.

For a full list of courses scheduled for the winter semester 2021/22 please go to UniVZthe data are due to changes and therefore preliminary!

A detailed description on how to register for a course via Stud.IP can be found here: Courses_Instructions_WiSe2021/22

Note: By signing up you agree (1) to frequently check your student e-mail account (studIT Account), as all information on courses will exclusively be sent to that account; (2) that your name and e-mail address may be forwarded to the course instructor(s) for communication before and after the course.

Important: Active participation in online (skills & methods) courses is prerequisite to collect the respective credits.
Active participation with the camera running is set as a prerequisite for course participation. Participants who expect technical problems should contact us in advance so that we can find a solution.
