The Center for Gender & Diversity (ZGD) of Hamburg’s universities offers students of all subjects the opportunity to obtain certificates in gender studies and intersectionality and diversity. A wide range of courses are offered as part of these certificates on subjects ranging from the natural sciences and engineering to the humanities through social sciences to the life sciences and art studies. The interdisciplinary, cross-university certificates focus on an intersectional analysis of concepts relating to diversity, such as gender, sexuality, origin, and disability.

How to register for courses

Depending on your university and degree program, you might be able to access your university’s Campus Management System (CMS) and to register for the courses like you would for any other course. If you are unable to access the CMS, email the course tutor to register for the individual courses. A different registration procedure applies for the courses offered by the Joint Commission: register for these events via ZGD’s events calendar. Click here to access the events calendar now. Select the course you would like to attend to reserve a place. Places are allocated on a first come, first served basis. The registration period begins on 1 September 2021 and ends on 20 September 2021. Note: No entitlement exists to be admitted to courses that are already full.

As part of the certificates, students from participating universities are able to apply for a username to access Universität Hamburg’s Campus Management System (CMS) as cooperation students. They can then access Universität Hamburg’s digital offers such as the STiNE Study Information Network, which greatly simplifies participation in the courses offered by Universität Hamburg. Usernames are only allocated upon application and for one semester at a time.

Note: Non-University members must continue to register for courses at Universität Hamburg by sending an email to the respective course tutor. A username does not entitle students to participate in a course. Once a student’s participation in the course has been confirmed individually, the tutor can initiate registration in STiNE using the username provided.

To apply for a username, complete and submit the application form (DOC or PDF) and CSV file. Do not make any changes to the CSV file template! Replace “Nachname” in the file names with your last name and email the two files to michaela.koch[at]uni-hamburg.de by 27 September 2021.

We are unfortunately unable to process incomplete applications.
