Day Tickets

For those students and the general public who would like to attend the lectures only, there will be a certain amount of day tickets ready at our reception desk on site.

Costs: Day tickets cost 5 CHF.

Time: The lectures start sine tempore (at the exact time indicated). For more information, please download the detailed schedule of the week.

Please note:

  • that we are not able to offer ECTS points for merely attending the lectures.
  • that the day tickets do not include the seminars in the afternoon, because students attend a single seminar for the whole week and need to prepare in advance.
