Organisational information

The Graduate Academy's events are primarily aimed at researchers from the University of Greifswald and associated research institutions and are free of charge. The offers consist of recurring and new topics. They usually take place in small groups of about six to twelve participants.

Please register for the courses using the online registration form. Those who have decided to attend at short notice are welcome to do so by prior arrangement if places are available. Places are usually allocated in the order of registrations. The workshops will only take place if a minimum number of participants register. If you are unable to attend at short notice, please let us know in advance so that people on the waiting list can move up. As a matter of principle, we expect that you will be able to participate without interruption for the entire duration of the course. After participating in individual events in the Graduate Academy's qualification programme, you will receive a digital certificate of participation. In addition to the title, type and time of the event, the certificate also lists the name of the trainer as well as the main content and the ECTS points awarded for the course (0.5 ECTS points per course day). Please note that at least 75 percent of the course must be attended for ECTS points to be awarded.

If you are unable to provide sufficient care for your children while attending our courses, please let us know by sending an email to graduiertenakademieuni-greifswaldde. We will then organise care for your child. We will then organise care for your child, which is of course free of charge for you! You can find more information about emergency childcare here.
