Admission to the course

You will  receive a confirmation from us regarding your acceptance immediately. If you are not accepted, as the course has a limited number of participants or if the course does not take place due to an insufficient number of participants, the course fee will be refunded.

Please note:
The course management will decide on the final admission to the course.


Cancellation of the binding course registration for the Summer semester 2023 can only be made in writing and should be sent to the Course Manager by the 18.02.2023. Cancellation of the binding course registration for the Winter semester 2023/24 can only be made in writing and should be sent to the Course Manager by the 16.09.2023.
The decisive factor in the withdrawal / cancellation  of course registration is date the written declaration reaches the University of Salzburg. In this case, the course fees are not due.
In the case of a later cancellation the full course fee has to be paid as a cancellation fee.
The university may disregard payment of the course fees / cancellation fee if the now free place on the course can be filled without any administrative effort. Should a participant be forced to prematurely end the course due to unforeseen, unavoidable, fateful events, such as an accident, a serious life-threatening illness or the like, the university may disregard payment of  the remainder of the course fees and it repay the part of the course that was not taken.
