Costs and Fees
The tuition fee covers all standard costs related to the GOSES Summer School, except travel, dining and accommodation. Those submitting their inscription after the deadline will pay full tuition. Each participant is responsible for his or her own travel to Reims. The organizers found a convenient accommodation solution at the CROUS student residences and put together a convivial dining package, including a vegetarian option and a formal dinner, at a student friendly price. All participants are of course most welcome to join in, but participants are free to dine independently and find their own accommodation, if they prefer. Local transportation, the fieldtrip, coffee breaks, lunches, planned drinks and the cultural program are free of charge for all enrolled participants. The accommodation and dining packages need to be paid in advance.
- Tuition: 300 euros (early bird) - 350 euros (full price)
- Accommodation: 150 euros
- Dining: 100 euros
The following payment methods are available through the online system:
- Credit card (Visa, MasterCard, CB)
- Bank transfer
- Chèque (French cheques only)
- Bon de commande (France only)
The best connected airport is Paris Charles de Gaulle, which is only 30 minutes away by direct high speed train (TGV). Concerning other airports in the vicinity, Paris Vatry, Paris Beauvais, Paris Orly and Brussels Charleroi are quite far away and connections are not very convenient.
The city has two major train stations: Reims Centre and Champagne Ardenne TGV. There are direct trains not only to Paris, which is only 45 minutes away, but also to Bordeaux, Dijon, Lille, Metz, Nantes, Rennes and Strasbourg. The two stations are connected to each other through a local train and a direct tramway that runs across the city.
Reims is located at the crossroads of the A4-E50 (Paris-Strasbourg) and A26-E17 (Calais-Troyes-Dijon) highways. It is situated at about 140 km from Paris (1.5 hours), 215 km from Brussels (2.5 hours) and 480 km from Amsterdam (4.5 hours). For those arriving from The Netherlands, this is usually the most convenient solution.
If you are considering carpooling, the organizing team will be happy to put you in contact with other prospective participants from the same area. Of course, other common carpooling services may also be available.
Once enrolment is confirmed, the organizers of the GOSES Summer School can issue letters for visa support upon request, but the responsibility for obtaining visas and all other documents necessary for traveling to France rests solely with the participants. The organizers decline any responsibility in this regard.
If, for any reason, you enroll in the GOSES Summer School and change your mind or you cannot make it, please let us know as soon as possible. Any cancellation received by 6 June 2016 will result in the full refund of your tuition, dining and accommodation fees at no cost except banking fees or differences in bank exchange rates. For cancellations received between 7 and 20 June 2016, we will be in a position to refund only dining and accommodation fees. The organizing team is not in a position to make refunds for cancellations received on or after 21 June 2016.
Unfortunately, the organizers are not in a position to offer scholarships to attend the GOSES Summer School. However, scholarships may be available from your university, government, as well as a host of private organizations, foundations and generous individuals. The organizers strive to maintain costs at an affordable level and ensure the highest value-for-money possible.
A certificate will be delivered at the end of the GOSES Summer School. Together with the program, this can normally be used to obtain 2 ECTS credits from your university. Please consult the international relations office of your university for more information regarding specific procedures.
