Adjustments due to Covid-19
We plan to give this course in a physical classroom but depending on the recommendations from authorities at the time for the planned start of the course, it might be given as an online course instead. In that case the course will follow the same plan, with classes online at the same time as the physical ones would have taken place, when the participants and the teacher meet.
If you do not wish to take part in the course if it is changed into an online course, please state “Not online” in the message box in your registration. Similarly, if you do not wish to take part if the course is given in a physical classroom (e.g. if you are part of a risk group), please state “Not classroom” in the message box in your registration.
Note that you should only write either of the statements if you really do not want to take part in the course if it is given accordingly. If you have stated either of these, we will automatically cancel your registration if this is the case and you will not have to pay the administrative fee.

If you do not have a Swedish personal identity number, please use the English form, state your year of birth, month and day, and state what country you are a citizen of. When booking the course, you can choose to pay by invoice or directly by credit card (invoice only possible with a Swedish personal identification number).
You will receive a confirmation of the booking shortly after you have applied. About a week before the start of the course, you will receive a course notification with practical information and an invoice for the course fee if you have chosen this payment method. If you have not received the notification or other information a few days before the course is set to start, you need to contact us.
We appreciate if you book the course at least two weeks before the planned starting date. Please note that we might cancel a course if we haven't recieved enough applications one-two weeks before the planned start of the course.
Student discountIf you are a student (not PhD student) at a Swedish university or college, we give you a 20 % discount on the course fee. Let us know if you are a student in your application. To get the discount, you need to choose payment by invoice and email us a picture of your student id (valid during the course period). We do not pay the discount back if you have already paid by credit card. (That is if you have a Swedish personal number. If not, you need to prepay the full amount with your credit card and we will make a refund of the discount.)
