Course requirements

Application requirements

Before the application process, please be sure to have on hand, a short and long bio to include in your application.

During the application process, applicants are requested to submit a short text of no more than 220 words stating your personal or professional objectives for taking the course. Note: Only applicants who submit a text with a short bio and a statement of personal objectives will be considered in the selection process.


Certification requirements

The course certificate will only be granted to participants that have completed and participated in all sessions.


Technical requirements (for Virtual Learning Journeys only)

Participants are requested to ensure the appropriate technical means and set up to participate digitally on Zoom. Participation requires a stable internet connection in a quiet environment, where the participant can speak freely and participate actively without interfering with others during course sessions. It is important to log on through a laptop/desktop computer (not phone/tablet) to have the full interactive course experience. The use of a camera is obligatory, and a headset is encouraged.


Language requirements

The course will be held in English; no translation will be provided. Participants therefore need to ensure proficiency in spoken and written English.
