Organizational notes:

  • All workshops are free of charge for students and alumni of Magdeburg-Stendal University of Applied Sciences.
  • All workshops are held in either German or English. Our trainers are usually bilingual,so you are also welcome to ask questions in English at German-language workshops (and vice versa) if you do not understand something.
  • We are happy to issue a confirmation of participation for you if you have participated in a workshop. A prerequisite for the issuance of a confirmation is a minimum attendance of 90% of the workshop time.
