Conditions of Participation & Registration
The workshops of the AMGC are open to all doctoral candidates who pursue their doctorates at the University of Cologne. Please bring a document to the workshop which can give evidence that you are a doctoral candidate of the UoC, such as a student ID card, the confirmation of admission to doctoral studies by your faculty or a signed supervision agreement (Betreuungsvereinbarung). We reserve the right to verify your identity as doctoral candidate.
The number of participants in the workshops is limited. Registration is limited to three workshops per person per semester.
Doctoral candidates from other universities, which are cooperation partners of the University of Cologne, may register too. If there are vacant places left in the workshop, they can participate for a higher fee (see below).
For registration, please complete the online registration form on our website. Once you have sent off the form, you will receive an automatic confirmation of arrival by email. You will receive a official written confirmation of a admission to the chosen workshop and additional information about the workshop approximately two to four weeks before it is to take place. If the workshop is already booked out, we will contact you by email. The same applies to changes of date or location.
If you have difficulties submitting the registration form online, please send the completed registration form to us by e-mail or standard mail. You will receive a confirmation via e-mail.
The AMGC charges 20 Euros for a one-day workshop and 40 Euros for a two-day workshop. Doctoral candidates from other universities, which are connected to the University of Cologne through cooperation, are asked to pay 40 Euros for a one-day workshop and 70 Euros for a two-day workshop. For external participants, the AMGC charges 100 Euros for a one-day workshop and 200 Euros for a two-day workshop.
The workshop fees will be paid from your account by bank transfer/direct debit about two weeks before the start of the workshop. An invoice/receipt will be sent to you by mail or given to you during the workshop. Please ensure that your account has sufficient funds at the time in question.
You will receive a certificate of attendance at the end of the workshop.
Before the registration deadline, you can cancel your registration for free. If you cancel the workshop 14 days before or less, we will charge you the full participation fee to cover our cancellation and administration costs. In the event of illness we reimburse the participation fee if you submit a corresponding medical certificate. Please send your cancellation - including last minute cancellations – to us via e-mail amgc.workshops(at)verw.uni-koeln.de. A notice to the instructor is not sufficient.
For children of the age between four months and eight years, professional child care is available. Please contact us at least four weeks before the workshop takes place via e-mail to amgc.workshops(at)verw.uni-koeln.de
