Our Professional Development Program consists of high-quality courses taught by expert trainers and coaches. The DRS therefore asks for a contribution of €100 per participant per course day. This contribution is covered by the DRS member programs and the departments (“Fachbereiche”) of Freie Universität Berlin.
For you as a participant there are no personal costs involved. However, the number of courses you can book per semester might be limited by your doctoral program (see “For how many courses can I register?”).
The number of courses you can register for is determined by your doctoral program. Please contact your program coordinator to find out how many course days you are entitled to book, before you register online.
Doctoral candidates of Freie Universität who are not a member of a DRS doctoral program, may register for two course days per semester. Please note that this only applies after a course has been opened and announced in our Open Newsletter (see “Who can participate in the DRS Professional Development Program?”).
