Travel support in NOT available to any applicant

The fees will not cover transportation, telephone, laundry and other personal expenses. The NSAS Courses are residential courses, with no exception. The fee is fixed regardless of length of stay, length of room occupancy or meals. Also, we discourage participants from arranging independent accommodation and meals since time spent together with faculties and other participants fosters effective scientific exchange and stimulates the development of professional networks and scientific collaborations. This is a hallmark of the spirit of the NSAS Courses.

We ask that applicants who have been accepted complete their registration promptly in consideration of other fellow participants who would be otherwise penalized. Registration is complete only after payment in full has been received: this ensures attendance and accommodation. There is no registration and payment on site: accepted participants arriving at a Course without having completes and prepaid their registration will not be admitted to the Course.


Forms of payment

Credit card is the preferred method of payment and instruction for online payment will be emailed to accepted applicants. We do not accept credit card payment over the telephone.

Bank wire transfers are also accepted: details for the transfer will be emailed to accepted applicants. Please be aware that your wire transaction may pass through one or more banks before reaching our account. In many cases, these banks deduct a transaction fee: when a fee (or fees) has been deducted, the amount deposited in our account reflects the deduction(s). The attendee is responsible for any transaction fees.

Participants from Countries within the European Union only may pay by check which must be sent by mail. Instructions will be emailed to confirmed participants. Please allow plenty of time for your check to be cleared by your bank and remember that the registration is complete only after funds have been received: your participation is placed on hold until then.

A registration form not accompanied by payment is not accepted. Please allow a few business days to process your registration. Please do not call or email with confirmation requests.

Receipts: A receipt will be emailed to you short before your Course.
