GSERM St. Gallen – online


The GSERM Global School in Empirical Research Methods is a high-calibre integrated generic programme on methodology launched by the University of St. Gallen.

We welcome Master, PhD students, Post-Docs and also practitioners from all kinds of study fields and industries collecting data and analysing in different methods of statistics. You enhance your skills in block seminars taught by world-class faculty amongst an international crowd of participants.

At different locations in Europe we offer courses in quantitative and qualitative statistics. Participants choose one course per week (24 contact hours) worth 4 ECTS, network with fellow researchers, and enjoy an interesting cultural programme.

Courses are offered from basic up to advanced level. All courses are taught in English.

Due to the still unclear situation with regard to the pandemic, the GSERM board has decided to run the St.Gallen programme 2022 online. All courses remain open for registration. In light of this change, we are reducing the our course fees. 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. We hope to meet you personally next year!
