  2. Pay by "SOFORT Überweisung" (Transfer the course fee from your bank account)
  3. Pay Pal 

We cannot accept late payment. We previously had members who asked for late payment, and who then didn’t pay and had to cancel their place on the course. This prevents other people from participating on the course.

The cost will cover all meals, coffe breaks, hotel accomodation during the course and pick up from Airport/Train station and back.

If you have any problems in filling in the application form or paying the course fees, please contact the office team:

3. Passport & Visa for Germany

  • Do not register or pay for the course, if you dont have a visa for Germany.
