Registration for Continuing Education Programmes at the University of Innsbruck (ULG) takes place within the registration period in writing or online resp. and is binding. The number of places is limited. Registrations will be ranked according to the date of entry – after checking the registration requirements according to the curriculum. After successful registration, participants will immediately get registration confirmation by e-mail.

The decision on the admission of applicants is made by the scientific management. Participants who have been admitted to the Continuing Education Programme and have paid the course fee are admitted as non-degree programme students at the University of Innsbruck by the rectorate.

There is a minimum number of participants for all Continuing Education Programmes. Only if the minimum number is achieved, the Continuing Education Programmes take place (see no. 5).

3. Programme fee and payment conditions

The programme fee is shown separately for each Continuing Education Programme. Payment is made in instalments per semester. The first instalment of the programme fee must be made within 7 days of receipt of the request for payment to the specified account of the Division of Continuing Education. All further instalments are also always payable 7 days after receipt of the payment request. Any additional services are described in the respective description of the Continuing Education Programmes. The programme fees are free of VAT.

4. Cancellation conditions

In case of prevention, written or online cancellation is required. From the time of the registration, 25% of the first instalment are charged as cancellation fee. After the registration deadline up to one week before the start of the programme, cancellation fees of 50% of the first instalment will incur. Afterwards and in case of a now-show at the start of the programme the full programme fee will be charged. A substitute participant will be accepted upon fulfilment of the registration requirements without additional costs.

5. Cancellation of Continuing Education Programmes /
courses/ absence of individual lecturers / exclusion

The University reserves the right to cancel individual Continuing Education Programmes if the required minimum number of participants is not reached. In this case, the already paid programme fee will be refunded in full immediately. Also cancellation fees will be refunded in the event of cancellation.

No reimbursement of the course fee will be made to participants who cancel the Continuing Education Programme prematurely for reasons that lie within their area. The same applies to participants excluded from a Continuing Education Programme. Likewise, there will be no refund of parts of the course fee for a replacement of a lecturer. A refund of parts of the programme fee is excluded even if it is a matter of minor changes (such as a change of dates or location), which are objectively justified. In the event of a postponement during the current semester, no compensation can be paid for expenses incurred (e.g. travel expenses, parking fees, costs for time lost), unless these are due to intent or gross negligence on the part of the University of Innsbruck or the lecturers.
