The admission procedure works on a daily first-come, first-served basis, which means that candidates can apply for any course up until the point it is filled (maximum number of participants: 15 for each course). Therefore, in order to avoid disappointment, it is strongly recommended that candidates apply as early as possible. Candidates exceeding the maximum number of participants will automatically be put on a reserve list and will be admitted only in case of withdrawal of other candidates.
A minimum of 10 participants is required for the activation of each course of the Coptic Summers School.
The regular tuition fee for the Coptic Summer School in 2022 is 300 EUR.
Applicants who submit their application by 15 May (early bird deadline) at the latest and are subsequently admitted to the programme, are eligible for a 50 EUR discount on the tuition fee (overall amount: 250 EUR).
For all the students regularly enrolled in an academic year of a recognized University, there is an extra reduction of the tuition fee: it amounts to 200 EUR for applications submitted by 15 May and to 250 EUR for applications submitted by 15 June. To be entitled to such a reduction, they must enclose a University Proof of Enrollment. In case the original certification is not written in one of the major European Languages, it is necessary to have it translated and legalized in English.
Payment instructions will be provided upon confirmation of program participation. Tuition fees will be refunded if a course is not activated. To obtain a refund, students should write to the Director of the Summer School.
