Registration and Fee
Registration for Courses
ICO PhD students must register for ICO courses by filling out the registration form on this website. Registration does not necessarily mean acceptance. See our regulations for details. PhD students who are members of ICO have an advantage over associated members and external candidates when registering for a course. Associated members have an advantage over external participants.
Fee for Courses
Membership is accepted only when a research proposal has been approved by the ICO Scientific Committee.
Under the terms of the recognition as a research school the participating universities in ICO have made an agreement on the division of the educational programmes costs over the participants. ICO PhD students will, in accordance to this agreement, not be charged for participating in the educational programme of ICO. The costs of the courses will be deducted with the ICO educational fund. Each university in ICO contributes yearly to this fund based on the number of PhD students participating in ICO. In case of exemption for an ICO course or master class, PhD students have the right to attend an alternative course or master class within the ICO educational programme.
The ICO educational programme is open for interested PhD students who do not formally participate in ICO. These students will be charged a fee of € 1000,00 for each course or master class they attend.
