Important to know before you register for the Postdoc Talent Management workshops

All courses are free of charge, but not for Ghent University! Registration involves a commitment and professional attitude:

  • You subscribe for all sessions of a course. Workshops cannot be taken separately.
  • Late cancellations or not showing up may limit your chances of attending other courses in the future.

All courses are in English. In case all participants are native Dutch-speaking, the course will be in Dutch.

No show policy - annulations

The training session is free of charge and is open to the UGent-staff. If you register for a training in Apollo, you agree to the cancellation and no show policy as described below.

If you can’t attend the training session, we ask you to cancel your registration. Hereby the following rules apply:

  • It is possible to cancel free of charge up to 5 working days prior to the start of the training session.
  • Should you fail to cancel 5 working days prior to the start of the training session, your department will be charged a no show fee (€ 50 per half day).
  • The no show fee will not be charged if you cancel or fail to attend a training session due to illness (if registered in Apollo) or any other valid reason.
  • The no show fee will not be charged if you find a colleague (that belongs to one of the staff categories for this session) to replace you.
  • The no show fee will only be charged if you miss an entire training session without a valid reason. The fee will not be charged if you miss part of a training session without a valid reason. This might, however, result in not receiving a certificate or registration in your training portfolio.
