Information on booking a course

  1. You tell us on which topic you would like to plan a workshop. We will make suggestions for various external - and possibly also internal - trainers and you decide which lecturer is best suited to your project and your institution.
  2. The Graduate Academy will put you in touch with the instructor you choose.
  3. You obtain an offer and clarify the details of the organization of the event (hotel booking, catering, room equipment, course materials, etc.) with the course instructor.
  4. The Graduate Academy prepares the necessary contract documents. The contract is concluded between the instructor and the Graduate Academy.
  5. After the course has taken place, the course instructor and the Graduate Academy will settle the invoice. We will then send you an invoice that includes the costs for the course as well as the travel and accommodation costs.
