Dear Diving Community,

unfortunately there were big problems with our IT shortly after the first announcement in January, which is why not all mails may have arrived. University operations are back to normal, only the websites are not yet available again. If you are interested in our course, please contact us at the following address again:


If you are interested, I would be happy to send you all the information directly.

Many greetings from Freiberg
