No show fee:
Please note the following: As from 2017, a no-show fee is introduced at GSST’s transferable skills courses for course participants who do not show up at the course or cancel their course participation after the course registration deadline – unless they can provide a Doctor’s note. The no-show fee will be DKK 1,200 (the price of one ECTS). The no-show fee is introduced because GSST has experienced many late cancellations, thus preventing people from the waiting lists to have a seat at the courses.
Deadline for registration is Thursday, 14 February 2017. Information regarding admission will be sent out no later than Friday, 17 February 2017.
Due to an Agreement between Danish Universities coming into force as of 1 January 2011, participants from other universities than Aarhus University will have to pay DKK 1,200 per ECTS. In principle this also applies to external parties, but exemption can be granted under specific circumstances.
How to register for the course:
Please be aware that your registration for the course not necessarily equals your admission for the course. You will receive an e-mail two days after the registration deadline regarding whether you are admitted for the course or if you are registered on the waiting list.
If you have any questions, please contact PhD Partner Nanna M. E. Pedersen, GSST (firstname.lastname@example.org).
