Course Programme

How many courses do I have to take?

Four courses within the first three years of your thesis are compulsory. Of these courses, at least two have to cover the area “Scientific Courses”, one has to cover the area “Transferable Skills & Management Courses”, and one is free of choice. In addition, the course “Good Scientific Practice” is compulsory within the first 6 months.

Which courses shall I take?

This depends on your educational background and your research interests and should be discussed with your thesis committee. If you need help and advice: Concerning the Scientific Courses, please ask your thesis committee members; concerning the Transferable Skills & Management Courses you are invited to ask the KoRS-CB management.

How to register?

Please register by using the link at the end of each course description on this website.

Can I also get credit for other courses?

Questions regarding the equivalence of other courses as well as cost takeover please address to the KoRS-CB office. In general, the courses offered by the Academic Staff Development (ASD) as well as courses of other graduate schools at the University of Konstanz are considered equivalent.
