Information from GAUSS & GAUSS Career Service

Call for course registrations – September 2022

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.Logo_GAUSS&GGNB

The registration for methods and professional skills courses held in September 2022 will be open from 1 July 2022.

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

Courses that do not reach the minimum number of participants will be cancelled (like, e.g. “Tailor-made job applications”, which was planned for April). Only in very exceptional cases will we send reminders for courses which are not full yet, so make sure to register in time.

Please check carefully for scheduling conflicts. Registration after 20 July 2022 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 July. From 1 August your participation will be binding and cancellation is only possible via the GGNB or GAUSS Office with a) sick certificate, or b) statement by supervisor for scientific reasons. If you do not provide this, you will be excluded from courses for the next 12 months(!), as well as grants or scholarships and other financial support. No exceptions.

For a full list of courses scheduled for the summer semester 2022 please go to UniVZthe data are subject to changes and therefore preliminary!

A detailed description on how to register for a course via Stud.IP can be found here: Courses_Instructions_SoSe2022

Note: By signing up you agree (1) to carefully check whether you will be able to attend the course (do not register for 2 courses taking place on the same dates – the above mentioned sanctions apply!), (2) to frequently check your student e-mail account, as all information on courses will exclusively be sent to that account; (3) that your name and e-mail address may be forwarded to the course instructor(s) for communication before and after the course; (4) to complete the course evaluation; (5) inform us if you no longer wish to maintain a waiting list position.

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.
