Conditions of Participations

Courses are allocated to tracks and build on one another. Doctoral researchers can complete the tracks in their entirety or just take individual courses.

The program is primarily offered to doctoral researchers from member institutions of the U Bremen Research Alliance. For online-lectures and in case that places are available, courses are open for other status groups or externals. Please note your status as one of the following in the registration form:

  • Doctoral researcher of a member institution of the U Bremen Research Alliance.
  • Doctoral researcher of a non-member institution. (External)
  • Post-doctoral researcher of a member institution of the U Bremen Research Alliance
  • Post-doctoral researcher of a non-member institution. (External)
  • Other

After registration, you will receive a confirmation email with information on participation. In case a course is fully booked, you will be automatically placed on the waiting list. The order of the waiting list is based on the time of registration and your status. In case of cancellation by a registered participant, the place will go to the first person on the waiting list.

Important:

Please indicate email addresses and names consistentlyduring the registration processes of all workshops (i.e. in the online registration form and the zoom registration) to make sure that this is the same person. This is crucial for the certification procedure. Otherwise, attended courses might not be listed in your certificate.
