Is there a limit to the number of courses I can take?
Participants can attend a maximum of one morning course and one afternoon course per session. During each session there is a supplementary mathematics course (scheduled 08.15-09.45) students can take free of charge, as well as our Introduction to R course which takes on the Sunday before each new session commences. (Fee incurred.)
When do I need to pay my tuition and accommodation fees?
On receipt of the application, the ESS office will send applicants an invoice for the amount due. Full payment must be made by 28 May 2021. Places on courses cannot be guaranteed if payment has not been received by this date.
• Cancellations made prior to 1st June 2021: an administrative charge of £50.00 or a full refund less your £50.00 non-refundable deposit payment.
• Cancellations made between 1st June and 1st July 2021: A fifty percent charge or refund of fifty percent.
• Cancellations made after 1st July 2021: No refund will be made.
Registered participants on courses cancelled by the Summer School organizers will be entitled to claim a full refund.
When is the deadline for applications?
Because ESS must consolidate this year to facilitate the online format it is critical to apply as soon as possible in order to be counted for your course. Completed application forms must reach the Summer School office by 1 May, 2021. The availability of places on all courses cannot be guaranteed after this date. On receipt of the form applicants will be sent confirmation of their booking together with an invoice.
Can I Gain Credits for Taking a Course?
Courses are not automatically examined but provision can be made to take a Single Course Exam in most courses at a cost of £100.00. Exams can only be booked and paid for up to the first day of the course. Credit is available only for two-week, 35 hours courses. Normally 15 ETCS are awarded, however this can be reduced if your institution requires this.
If a course is fully booked can I be placed on a waiting list?
Courses operate with space limits. Registration for a particular course is on a first come/first serve basis. Registrants beyond the maximal number of participants set by the instructor will be put on a waiting list, and will be informed as soon as a place becomes available. If the waiting list grows too long, registration for that workshop will be closed.
I have already registered for the summer school but I would like to change my course selection, what should I do?
Changing courses is possible until two weeks before the course takes place. However, changing courses is possible only if space permits.
Will I automatically receive a certificate of attendance?
All participants will be supplied with a certificate of attendance, which will be mailed to them after the session completes.
