Registration

How to register?

Anyone, whether connected to UGent or Association UGent or not, can register. There are no limits to the number of registrations. A distinction is made between officially registered UGent students (of the present academic year i.e. 2016-2017 and having a student card) and others (including staff, researchers, external people, ...)

Students are allowed to register until a quarter of the series has been completed (3 lectures - end of February 2017). Students wanting to register after that date can no longer participate. Students need 75% (=9) attendance in the lectures (to be proved by signing the attendance sheet in person during the lectures; no other proof is accepted) in order to obtain the certificate.

The usual rules of the University apply in connection with quitting the programme (see Dutch version of the rules).
