The school is organized so that every group of four students performs all the exercises with the equipment dedicated to that exercise. This means that the number of students is limited and admittance to the school is therefore via a selection procedure.

Application for acceptance opens: September 15th, 2018
Application for acceptance closes: December 15th, 2018

The tuition fee is 850 CHF (approx 755 euro) and covers accommodation (10 nights), breakfasts, lunches, coffee breaks, a reception, a dinner and a social event. Travel to and from RHUL, as well as diners and other expenses, are to be paid by the students.

Accommodation is in single rooms. 

For a limited number of applicants who do not have any means of finance from their home institute, tuition might be reduced or waived by the organizers.

So, please send your application as early possible: for the benefit of both you, the student, and the hosting institute.
