Before you book
Carefully read the course description and check that it is appropriate for your needs and the stage of your research.
Check that you have no other commitments that would prevent you from attending the whole of the course. Some courses take place over several days and you will be expected to attend on all days.
Contact the relevant team (information at bottom of page) if you have any questions about the content or process of the course or are not sure whether the course would be appropriate for your needs.
How to book
Courses can be booked through the University’s Training Course Booking System (www.dur.ac.uk/training.course). You will need your University username and password to log in and access your training record. Courses are opened up for booking on a termly basis.
If there are places available, the booking
system will send you an conformation email. If the course is already fully booked then you will be placed on a booked waiting list and if a place becomes available (e.g. through another person cancelling) then you will be informed by email. Please check for updates on your booking status via email regularly.
Cancelling a booking
If your circumstances change and you cannot attend then you should cancel your place. You can cancel your place via the My Training Record link on the Training Course Booking System (www.dur.ac.uk/training. course) as soon as possible and not less than 24 hours before the course (Monday to Friday). Please note that longer notice may be required for residential or full-day events.
If you are prevented from attending at the last minute (less than 24 hours) then you should contact the relevant team (information at bottom of page) as soon as possible.
