Course Structure

At the GESIS Summer School we are offering both on-site and online courses. On-site courses usually take place at GESIS Cologne; online courses are taught as live teaching events via Zoom. We do not provide recordings or other extensive video material of the course contents.    

Our short courses are typically organized as online courses. They are either three-day or two-day courses with a class time of 12 hours total. Once course descriptions are available at training.gesis.org, please read them carefully for more information. 

Some of the Summer School's one-week courses are taught on-site at GESIS Cologne, while others are organized as live online courses via Zoom. Depending on the course, 24 or 30 hours of total class time will be distributed over five days. All one-week courses start on a Monday. Each day contains 5-6 hours of classes of which around 2-3 hours are tutorials or labs or exercises. Once course descriptions are available at training.gesis.org, please read them carefully for more information.

All courses are full-day events. Classes start no earlier than 09:00 and no later than 11:00 CEST. Classes end no earlier than 15:00 and no later than 18:00 CEST. Thus, participants cannot register for courses that take place on the same day or in the same week. For exact course times read the course descriptions at training.gesis.org as soon as they are available.
