ReMa/PhD Student Program

Please note that some of the events may have restricted access for either PhD or ReMA students, others may allow participants from both groups. Most activities also allow non-OZSW-members to participate (but a fee generally applies).


For many of the activities PhD students and ReMa students can – after successful completion – earn a certificate. However, the OZSW is not accredited to reward students with credits/ECTS directly. The study load is mentioned on the certificate, which can usually be exchanged for ‘real’ credits (ECTS) at your home university. More information.

On travel costs

The OZSW can reimburse the travel costs for ReMa student member who participate in OZSW activities in another city than where they live. Please contact us at  in advance to ask for permission and get a form to declare your costs. PhD student members should declare costs with their employing university.
