Courses

You need to earn 18 ECTS points for your doctoral studies. See also the Core curriculum. You can submit your course list with the associated confirmations to the doctoral coordination office (monika.lam@tuebingen.mpg.de) once a year to get your actual status of your ECTS Points.

Note: Credit Points will only be acknowledged for the doctoral studies, when you have been admitted to the GTC doctoral program.

You may also attend courses from our three masters programs. The list of courses can be found in Alma system and ILIAS. Details about the master 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.

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. 

If you have problems with the registration of the GTC Master or PhD courses, please contact us.

 

How do I register for the courses?
The doctoral course program offers various courses from various hosts. Registration information to the individual courses can be found on the ILIAS folder of the course.

Since March 2018, all PhD students must enrol at the University. So you should be enrolled or requested exemption from mandatory enrollment since you have a contract with the University. If you plan to take Mastercourses from the GTC Program, there are two cases how you can register.

Case 1: You are enrolled at the Uni You should have received login details from the University. To register for the course, you need to register in ALMA and ILIAS. The course coordinator will give you access to ILIAS, when there are free spots and you can participate.

Case 2: You requested exemption for the mandatory enrollment. As a employee from the University, you should received login details anyway. To register for the course, you need to register only in ILIAS and write an email to the course coordinator (katja.thieltges@remove-this.uni-tuebingen.de). The course coordinator will give you access to ILIAS, when there are free spots and you can participate.
