Summer Term 2021

Please note that only 'active' doctoral students of the GTC can participate in the courses listed. In case there are more applications than places on a course, ‘active’ doctoral students of the GTC are preferred over students who are still in the process of admission. The latter will be considered in case of vacant places on a particular course. Doctoral students who have not yet passed their admission interviews ('applicants') and guest students from other faculties can participate only in case of vacancies.

 You may also attend courses from our three masters programs. Likewise, you will have to register online through the Alma system. A list to the courses can be found in the Module handbook of each Masterprogram (see in regulations of each program). Very few of them have admission restrictions, though, and are for masters students only. If you have troubles with the registration to the lecture through Alma, please contact us.

Courses indicated as 'Elective' will run throughout the semester and take place once a week. They are specialist courses offered to masters students, however, they might also be of interest to doctoral students working or planning to work in that particular field.

Online Courses (Coursera, edX, etc.)

Course content / topics

You can receive also ETCS Credit Points for Online Courses from Coursera, edX or other platforms. Since these courses vary a lot, the GTC needs to check course by course. We therefore ask you to compile following information:

  • Duration of video lectures
  • Number of excercises
  • Number of Quizzes
  • Additional tasks
  • Final exam (structure, i.e. how many questions, excercises; multiple choice or text answers?
  • Curriculum (saved as a pdf)

In addition, you need to send either the certificate of the course or a confirmation (e.g. an email or screenshot) that you successfully passed the course.
