General information:

• As the number of applicants often exceeds the number of available places, the first to register will be served first, where candidates are equally qualified. Notification of acceptance will be given continuously, respectively not later than November 15th, 2018 in case acceptance cannot be guaranteed immediately on application.
• In concern of scholarships we advice to check regional/national funding yourself (such as at your university, embassy, foundations ...).
• The works/scores to be studied in ensemble performance will be sent to each participant for preparation (in January 2019 at the latest).

• Main language of instruction: English, but also other languages depending on necessities, participants and tutors.

• As for example rehearsals of ensemble works or the developement of special workshops and various other projects follow an ongoing schedule and lead to public performances in many cases, all participants are expected to stay for the whole period of the Academy (10.2. arrival day, 22.2. departure day). Participants are thus oblidged to discuss possibilities of exceptions where needed with the impuls office beforehand. 



Additional conditions:

impuls reserves the right to make any necessary changes to the course content, in particular a change of tutors. A change does not infer any right to withdraw from the course or claim compensation. Registration is binding upon receipt of the application form by impuls.This implies that any cancellation has to be reported to the impuls office in any case.




• Any cancellation: registration fee has to be paid in any case upon acceptance - thus also any kind of reimbursement of the registration fee is not possible.
• Any cancellation after November 15th, 2018: on top of the registration fee also the Academy fee has to be paid for. Thus a refund is not possible, unless the place is taken by applicants on the waiting list or other potential participants accepted by impuls (the registration fee remains non-refundable in any case).
