As of Autumn 2018 cancellation of participation in GTS courses are required no later than one week before the course starts. Cancellation less than one week before the start of the course will result in a late cancellation fee of 1000 SEK, charged to the student´s department. No-shows will be fined with 1500 SEK, charged to the student´s department.
The new cancellation fees are introduced to manage growing issue with no-shows and late cancellations. This results in empty seats in courses that have a waiting list. GTS courses are dimensioned to meet the demands of doctoral students per semester. If we run with empty seats there will not be enough seats to cater to those needs. We hope that together we can shorten the waiting lists for participation in courses, and open up space for everyone who wishes to take a course.
If you are on a waiting list and could take a seat on short notice, please contact us via phone the day before a course starts and check for empty seats, which might be available. This is not possible for courses that require pre-work (Sustainable Development, Writing up for publication, Teaching, Learning & Evaluation, Applied Project Management).
