Courses 2021

Follow up CORONA situation and regulations at ETHZ and at EPFL

Kick-Off Event

To launch the 2021 program of courses and coaching Groups, a networking event has taken place on March 16th, 2021. More information on that page


The fee for participants from the ETH domain amounts to 80 CHF for a one-day course and 150 CHF for a two-day course. Confirmed participants will receive an invoice which has to be paid latest one week before the beginning of the course.


Before registering you should know who’ll pay the invoice (yourself or your employer). It’s very important for us, as it will change the way the invoice is prepared.

Schedule / Snacks & Lunches

All courses will take place between 9-17h if not specified otherwise. Coffee breaks and lunch are included in the offer unless for online courses.


Registration will open six weeks before the course, please use the online registration form on the webpage. Participant number: 8-12. Courses will take place if the minimum number participants is reached.

Cancellation policy

For cancellations latest one week before the start of the course and in case of illness or force majeure, the participants will be reimbursed.

Individual coaching session

FLP offers a limited number of one-hour individual coaching sessions to a reduced fee (CHF 50) with one of the coaches or trainers of the FLP programme (see list below). This session can support you in your career planning process and help you reflect on your own situation. If you are interested, you can apply via this application form.

Commitments and duties

If the course is planned during two days, participants are expected to attend all course days with the coach.
