Call for course registrations – April 2023

UniVZ moved to HISinOne EXA – for information about all courses scheduled for the summer semester 2023 please go to HISinOne EXA

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

The registration for methods and professional skills courses held in April 2023 will be open from 1 February 2023.

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

Courses that do not reach the minimum number of participants will be cancelled. 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 February 2023 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 February. From 1 March 2023 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 2023 please go to HISinOne EXAthe 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_SoSe2023

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!);

(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.

Confirmations of participation are to be obtained from Stud.IP.
