Cancellation of the binding course registration can only be made in writing and should be sent to the Course Manager by the 20.02.2021. The decisive factor in the withdrawal / cancellation  of course registration is date the written declaration reaches the University of Salzburg. In this case, the course fees are not due.

In the case of a later cancellation the full course fee has to be paid as a cancellation fee.

The university may disregard payment of the course fees / cancellation fee if the now free place on the course can be filled without any administrative effort. Should a participant be forced to prematurely end the course due to unforeseen, unavoidable, fateful events, such as an accident, a serious life-threatening illness or the like, the university may disregard payment of  the remainder of the course fees and it repay the part of the course that was not taken.
