How do I register for GSERM?

The application portal for GSERM Ljubljana 2022 will open beginning September 2021.


Due to the still uncertain situation with regard to the Covid pandemic and its travel restrictions, we have decided that GSERM Ljubljana 2022 will be offered ONLINE ONLY. All courses remain open for registration and will take place if they reach a minimum number of participants.

Is it possible to sign up for two classes during the same session?

No. For each main session, students must choose one class only as they are taught concurrently. However, the workshop lectures (only at GSERM St. Gallen) can be visited simultaneously as they are held at different times of the day.

Cancellation Policy

Cancellation by the participant

Fees will not be refunded if the participant interrupts the course or ends it prematurely.

These costs are as follows:

Cancellation up to 60 days before course start GSERM will retain CHF 100 to cover administrative expenses

How many students can participate in GSERM courses?

We book maximum 20 – 25 participants per class.

Will I receive academic credits and a transcript after GSERM?

If you complete the programme and the exam successfully, you will be credited 4 ECTS credits and will get a transcript of University of St. Gallen. The transcript will be sent to your registration address about 10 weeks after the exam.

Your transcripts will contain the following:

Grading scale
Each completed examination is graded according to a grading scale from 6.0 (excellent) to 1.0 (useless). Satisfactory results are awarded grades from 6.0 to 4.0 inclusive, while results graded 3.5 to 1.0 are insufficient. The grading scale in detail:

Do I have to sit for the end-of-course exams?
