This course is running over ten weeks. Also at this course the students will read articles, do tests, write, and solve problems related to the articles, in groups as well as individually. Note that some group work is obligatory!

Please note that the courses require quite some time from the participants! Most students use over 4 hours per week for the G2 course, but it varies depending on background knowledge and how used they are to studying.

Entering the course

If you would like to sign up to take the G2 course, please contact Dagny and ask to be added to the waiting list. Note that the G2 course only is open for those who have taken the G1 course and got the examination banner.

The course fee is presently approximately € 98 (plus bank fees for transfering the money). The price might change over time. You will not have to pay until we can offer you a place in the course and you have accepted. If you will not get a place in the next planned courses, you will be placed on a waiting list and will be offered a place later on.

Conditions

Note that the course fee will not be reimbursed if you decide to leave the course or if you change your mind before the course starts, regardless of the reasons for this. You also can not count on obtaining a place in a future course unless you pay the fee for that place.

We make no difference between the reasons why a student leaves the course or changes his/her mind. The reasons are often very personal, and we feel we should not investigate these in order to judge if a student has a good enough reason to drop out of the course.

If a person who paid the course fee informs us very early that he/she can not take the course, preferrably before the course starts, we can in some cases arrange it so that the course fee can be used for a later course instead. This is only if we can fill the place in the course with another participant. However, it can not be required from us to solve this for a participant.

If a student drops out during the course we can sometimes offer the student a place in a future course if another student dropped out from that course. For this to be an option the later student must have dropped out from his/her course at the same time as the student who is to take over the place, or earlier. This means that the later in the course a student drops out the better are the chances to take up the course again in a future course without having to pay again. We will do what we can to help, but we can not guarantee that we can solve it in all cases. If you want to make sure to be able to take up the studies again at a later course you will have to sign up again and pay the course fee again when you get the invitation. You will then have a new place right from the start of that course.
