In courses classified as part of the VIP Program (Viadrina International Program - for Graduates), applications of VIP fellows are treated preferentially. In case of sufficient open spots, however, these courses are open to all doctoral and postdoctoral researchers at the Viadrina, as well.


All courses start s.t. (sine tempore), i.e. exactly at the specified time. If desired, certificates of attendance can be issued. However, please note that you cannot acquire ECTS or other credits towards your degrees in the Key Qualification program. 

Child Care

Please inform us about potential child care needs when registering. Child care can be offered on site; costs can be reimbursed for enrolled PhD students. Please contact the Family Affairs Office for such financial assistance.

Teaching in Higher Education

Research assistants, research fellows, and lecturers are invited to participate in courses on Teaching in Higher Education. Please find further information (German only) at Netzwerk Studienqualität Brandenburg.
