The small print:
Please note, SciPS workshops are intended primarily for postgraduate research students, eg those undertaking DPhils or post-doctoral research, and they will be given priority over taught students.
Many of our sessions are oversubscribed, therefore it is vital you let us know if you have booked and are subsequently unable to attend. It is frustrating for those on the waiting list to discover that there were places available on the day.
We are now operating a three-strike policy for those who repeatedly fail to attend without informing us. After the third no show, you will no longer be able to enrol on courses and will instead have to join a waiting list. Your supervisor will also be advised of your persistent non-attendance.
