GTC Sabbatical Semester (for teaching staff)

The GTC sabbatical semester enables full-time teaching staff to take a leave of absence from their normal teaching duties to work intensively on a teaching project, to investigate methodological and didactic approaches, and to (further) develop innovative teaching and learning concepts designed to improve teaching skills.

  • All full-time teaching staff at JGU can apply.
  • The maximum funding is € 10.000 (in special cases up to € 25.000). This funding is to be primarily used to compensate the faculty/school for the staff member on a GTC sabbatical and to pay for student assistants, if necessary.
  • Please note the application deadline for the winter semester (May 15) and summer semester (December 1).

Further information can be found in the detailed call for proposals and the application form on the German webpage of the GTC. Please contact us if you need an English version.
