Terms and Conditions for Course Program

Target Group | Admission

ProLehre courses are open to all teaching staff who are members of a university that is part of the Bavarian ProfiLehre association. This includes all universities and public technical colleges in Bavaria.

Some courses are limited to certain target groups (e.g. only tutors or only experienced lecturers). For some courses, certain participation requirements apply (e.g. completion of a specific foundation course or knowledge of English). Such details are noted in the respective course descriptions.

Certificates from the ProfiLehrePlus association may only be issued to members of the Technical University of Munich.

Registration

On the respective course pages, you will find a registration button that will take you to a registration form. If the form is not visible, registration has not yet begun or has already ended. Registration usually starts on March 15th in the summer semester and on September 15th in the winter semester. Registration by email or telephone is not possible (unless explicitly stated on the course page).

Please fill in all fields carefully when registering as they are the basis for invoices and certificates of attendance.

If registration is no longer possible because the course is fully booked, we will activate a waiting list within a few days, where you can (and should) make a non-binding reservation free of charge. Should a place become available, you will be notified and can (but do not have to) move up.

Course Fees

Generally, we charge a participation fee for our courses, which is specified on each course page. You can find our complete fee schedule here.

Preparation

About one to two weeks before the start of the course, you will receive a reminder email with further information about the venue (including directions).

In some cases, you will be asked to prepare certain things or bring materials with you to the course. Preparation requirements are usually announced in the course descriptions.

Deregistration

Deregistration is only possible in exceptional cases and only by writing an email to kursorganisation@prolehre.tum.de; please state your name and the course number.

Cancelation fees may apply, depending on the date of cancelation. But they will be waived

  • if you were ill during the course and can provide a medical certificate or
  • if you, as a doctor, were unable to leave your ward due to a medical emergency and can prove this with a confirmation from your superior.

Course Cancelation

If a ProLehre course has to be canceled (e.g. due to illness of the trainer or failure to reach the minimum number of participants), any fees already paid will be fully refunded.

Please include your email address and telephone number on the registration form so that we can contact you quickly in such cases.

Refreshments during the Course

We provide water at all our events. For events longer than four hours, we usually also provide coffee, tea, and biscuits.

Accessibility

Some of our course rooms are not fully accessible. If you are a wheelchair user, please contact us early so that we can make arrangements for you if necessary.

Certificates of Participation

Once you have completed the course, you will usually receive a certificate of participation. In some cases, we will send the confirmation after the course by in-house mail.

We assume that you will attend the entire course. If you are significantly late or early, we reserve the right to reduce the number of study units on the certificate or not to issue a certificate of participation (if you are absent more than half the time, we generally do not issue a certificate of participation).
