Call for course registrations – February 2022

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 February 2022 will be open from 1 December 2021.Logo_GAUSS&GGNB

Please note: Due to the Christmas holidays, the registration deadline is shorter than usual.

You can register from 1-15 December online via Stud.IP for courses taking place in February; the slots will be allocated between 20-25 December.


Please check carefully for scheduling conflicts. Registration after 15 December is not possible, please do not contact the course instructors. All communication regarding the courses should be via the GAUSS or GGNB Office.
