General terms and conditions

Registration

Your registration for a continuing education course will be confirmed by us, and it is then final. Both written and online registrations are legally binding. Definitive admission to a course is subject to specific admission conditions/requirements. These can be found in the relevant detailed course descriptions. By registering, participants confirm that they have read and accept the general terms and conditions of admission and participation and the course requirements as set out in the course descriptions.

Important note for persons who have no degrees

(university of applied sciences, pedagogical university, university) and are admitted based on their application dossier («sur dossier»): Admission to the MAS continuing education Master’s programme or, for the modular MAS, to the Master’s module is possible only after completion of the continuing education course «Wissenschaftsbasiertes Arbeiten»». The course Wissenschaftsbasiertes Arbeiten is offered several times a year. You will receive further information (dates, cost, contents, etc.) during the registration procedure. Please note that admission to the MAS continuing education Master’s programme or, for the modular MAS, to the Master’s module is not assured by taking part in this course. The head of the study programme makes the final decision on admission.
