Course fees include refreshments during tea breaks. Participants are responsible for own travel and accommodation arrangements.
 
Attendance and assignments: 

Participants are expected to attend 5 days of classes/seminars from Monday to Friday (9:00 until 13:00 and for certain courses tutorials in the afternoons 14:00 – 15:30). The final assignment for each course takes place outside of this period. Participants who are not interested in acquiring academic credits for courses are not expected to submit assignments (but full payment is required). While these courses can be taken individually without enrolling for a degree programme, it also forms part of our Postgraduate Diploma in Social Science Methods (SAQA registered). Therefore, successful completion of these courses is one way to acquire academic credits for the Postgraduate Diploma in Social Science Methods.
