Application and admission to courses

The courses within the Water Research School normally have a limited number of participants. Members of the research school will be given priority. As far as possible, each cluster will be given the same number of participants. The steering committee decides who are allowed to participate in the courses, this should normally be done two months before the course starts. If there still are vacancies left, other PhD students, members of the Swedish Water & Wastewater Association or others working within the area of urban water sector can also apply to the courses as long as they fulfil the requirements (normally a Master degree, or equivalent). A course fee of 5000 SEK will be charged for professionals working in the water sector to cover the extra expenses.

Courses are given free of charge to members of the research school. The Water Research School will pay travel costs (up to 3000 SEK per course) and accommodation (up to 500 SEK per night) for members of the Water research school. If a student cancel their application without a valid reason within two months before the course start a fee of 2000 SEK will be charge unless the vacancy can be filled with another participant.
