Organisational details

Application procedure

Please register by using the online registration form for the course you wish to attend. Before registering, staff of Kiel University need to get official permission to attend the course from their superior. This can be confirmed by marking the mandatory field „Ich habe meine Vorgesetze, meinen Vorgesetzen informiert. Sie/er ist mit meiner Teilnahme am Kurs einverstanden“.
You will receive confirmation of your registration via email. The official invitation to the course will be issued approximately 10 days before the course begins.

If you have special needs or require any particular assistance please let us know in advance!

Admission procedure

If there are more applications than places available on a course, places will be allocated according to the date when the application was submitted. Shortly after the application deadline we will inform you if your application was successful, and if so, where the course will take place.

Waiting list and additional dates

Once the number of applications exceeds the places available on a course, applications will be kept in a waiting list in order of their submission date; in the case of any cancellations, they will be offered a place on the course. If there are many names on a waiting list we will do our best to offer an additional course for these applicants. Any changes in schedule and other information regarding additional courses can be found on our website.

Course cancellations

In the case of too few applications, a course will be cancelled. You will be informed of this by mail.


Participants exempt from paying fees

All members of the technical, administrative and academic staff of Kiel University are exempt from paying fees.

Participants exempt from paying fees

Cancellations are accepted only in the case of compelling or urgent reasons. If you must cancel, please do so as early as possible; in this way we can save fees and allocate your place to another candidate.
