Information on booking a course

  1. First we obtain offers from various external and internal instructors for you and you decide which instructor best suits your needs.
  2. The Graduate Academy then engages the instructor you choose and if necessary, a contract is drawn up between the instructor and the Graduate Academy.
  3. You agree on the rest of the course details (hotel booking, catering, course location, course materials etc.) directly with the instructor.
  4. If desired, the Graduate Academy provides evaluation forms and participation certificates for the students.
  5. After the course is completed, the Graduate Academy pays the instructor directly and then bills you for the course and for any applicable travel expenses.
