Call for course registrations – June 2023


The registration for methods and professional skills courses held in June 2023 will be open from 1 April 2023. Please check the updated overviews of Methods and Professional Skills courses.

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

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 April 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 April. From 1 May 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.
