Event Rules and Guidelines

IPB programme events give participants a further opportunity to establish important contacts. Events include field trips and various workshops such as "How can I find a part-time job?"  

*Go to our Facebook page or to our IPB homepage and click on “Events and activities” to find out more information about the events planned.

The number of places for some events is limited. In these cases places are reserved on a first come first serve basis

  • Commitment and reliability: sign up early enough and be part of the event. Please let us know if you have to cancel on short notice due to illness
  • Please be fair towards the other participants: If for any reason you are not able to attend, then inform us as soon as possible (at least three days before the start of the event)
  • Failure to comply with this deregistration deadline will result in your being barred from the next excursion

Is there a fee for taking part in an event?
Most events for IBP participants are free of charge. Some events, however, do require a small participation fee and may require that participants provide their own food and drinks. Your registration for an event is not valid until payment is received.

How do I register for an event?
There is a registration deadline for each event (normally three days before the start of the event).  You must register for program events in person at the International Office.
