Course and Cancellation Conditions for Continuing Education Programs at UZH – conducted by the Human Resources Department

Registration and waiting list

Participants sign up online on the Events and Courses website using their UZH login details. The registration is binding once confirmed. By signing up, participants confirm that they fulfill the course prerequisites.

If the course is already full, participants will be added to the waiting list. Being on the waiting list does not entitle participants to join the course. If a slot becomes available, participants will be signed up automatically. Automatic registrations that occur via the waiting list are binding.

Course fees are payable within 30 days of invoice delivery. Participation in the course is not guaranteed if the course fees are not paid on time.
