Registration Modalities

Participation in our courses and workshops is open primarily to members of MArburg University Research Academy. External participants are also welcome to participate to the extent that places are available. Please register once in our database in order to use MARA offers.

  • Registration process

    The respective registration modalities can be found in the online announcement of the events in our Calendar of Events.

    Please register for MARA courses via our web registration form. Upon registration, you will receive a binding registration confirmation from us - provided that there are free places available, you are a member of MARA and you correspond to the target group. Otherwise, we will initially place you on the waiting list and contact you in time before the start of the event if participation is possible.

    Two weeks before the start of the event, you will receive further information and a request for payment for courses with a fee. Please transfer the participation fee immediately, at the latest by the start of the event.

    You can register for events of the certificate program "Designing and Managing Research Projects" (EMF) via the external database of the University of Kassel. The invoice is automatically generated with the registration confirmation and is due within the following 14 days.

    Please note that registration is always binding after your confirmation. You may cancel your registration up to twelve days before the course begins without providing specific reasons. Thereafter, you will be required to pay the fee even if you do not attend the course.

  • Attendance Fee

    Internal Attendance Fee

    The usual attendance fee for MARA members is 25 EUR per course day or 50 EUR per day in exceptional cases for particularly expensive courses. Half-day courses are usually free of charge. You can find additional information on MARA membership on the page membership.

    Junior scholars from other universities may participate in our courses as internal participants at a reduced rate if they are involved in a joint project with Philipps-Universität (i.e., Research Training Groups, Collaborative Research Centres, LOEWE Centers, or LOEWE Priority Areas). Junior scholars from Universität Kassel completing the "Entwicklung und Management von Forschungsprojekten" (Designing and Managing Research Projects) continuing education certificate and junior scholars from Justus-Liebig-Universität Gießen or from the Technische Hochschule Mittelhessen in general can participate in our courses as internal participants at a reduced rate. The same applies to junior scholars of Philipps-Universität Marburg who take part in the mentoring programs ProMotivation, and Mentoring Hessen.

    External Attendance Fee

    For all other participants, we charge a higher fee: normally 75 EUR per course day or 150 EUR per course day for especially expensive courses. Half-day courses are usually free of charge. Please understand that our offerings are primarily provided for internal participants. We will notify you two weeks before the beginning of the course if places are still available.

    Please check whether your employer is able to refund the costs for attending an event organized by MARA as a business errand (within the university) or an ordinary business trip.

    Don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions concerning the internal or external attendance fee!

  • Care

    We also provide our participants with support for childcare or care for relatives in need of care within the limits of our financial means. We offer you financial support for childcare for children up to one year old, for older children younger than age 15 outside of the regular operating hours of childcare centers, and/or for care of relatives in need of care, as documented by a medical certificate. You can find babysitters on Philipps-Universität Marburg's platform Babysitterbörse. In the case of an emergency, you can find information on supplementary childcare on the page of the Family Service.

    Please understand that we cannot provide financial support for relatives providing care.

    If you require support for care, please contact the MARA Managing Director no later than one month after the end of the workshop and include proof of the amount of the expenses and the actual services procured.

  • Accessibility

    All events in the MARA building, Deutschhausstraße 11+13, are accessible by individuals with special needs. Please contact us should you have any questions concerning the accessibility of rooms outside the MARA building.
