GSERM St. Gallen


In conjunction with our instructors, we have decided that the GSERM St. Gallen 2020 programme will be offered online only. All 2020 courses remain open for registration.

In light of this change, we are also reducing the fees for the June session. Please check in the pricing section.

We understand that some participants were looking forward to visiting Switzerland and joining in a course in-person and may not be satisfied with remote instructions. For participants who wish to cancel and do so until 3 April 2020 we will refund all fees, both for classes and accommodation. Please see our adapted cancellation policy.

At present, we are in process of contacting the instructors to ascertain their willingness to offer their classes online. Some of the course content does not work for online training. We are also working on solutions for these cases. By End April we will be able to present a final scenario.

We understand that networking during GSERM and participating in the social activities we ordinarily offer have been important parts of the whole programme.

We will post updates on our website as well as on our Facebook and Linkedin channels. Please reach out to us at if you have any questions or concerns.
