General enrollment information

Through the year the BioSB research shool organises a number of courses in different tracks. On this page you will find more information about how you can (pre) register for a BioSB course. An overview of the BioSB courses can be found at the course portfolio page.


If a course date has not been determined yet, you can express your interest in a course by filling out the pre-registration form. If you pre-registered for a course we will inform you as soon as more information about the course of your interest is available. We will also inform you as soon as the course registration form is open for applications.


Researchers who want to participate in a BioSB course can apply by filling out the registration form on the respective course page. The application procedure includes an evaluation of your educational background and motivation for attending the course.

PhD students who want to integrate the BioSB courses in their personal PhD programme should contact their own research institute for approval. To avoid students having to apply for approval for each individual course, BioSB is in the process of contacting relevant research and graduate schools on the possibilities for integrating the BioSB courses in their education programme.

Several BioSB courses are also open for MSc students. MSc students need a recommendation by their supervisor and can only participate if there are enough seats available in the course. Regular registrations by PhD students and other researchers will have priority over registrations of MSc students.

Course fees

Course fees are set at 400, 600 and 900 euros (exclusive of 21% VAT) for a five-day course for PhD students (and MSc students), academics (PIs and postdocs) and industrial attendees.

Confirmation and payment procedure

At the bottom of the registration form you will find a short Disclaimer with a tick box that you will have to agree with before you can submit your form.

After submitting the registration form, you will receive a confirmation of receipt of your registration. Please note that only fully filled-out forms will be considered. After a positive review by the course organizers a confirmation of your registration will be sent to you by e-mail. An invoice will also be sent by e-mail which you are required to pay within 14 days.

If you decide, for any reason, not to participate in the course, you can receive a refund if you notify the course organisation by e-mail at least 14 days before the start of the course. No-shows or cancellations made less than 14 days prior to the first course day are not eligible for a refund. However, after notification of the course organisation somebody else may attend a course as your replacement.
