Booking

Before booking you must be eligible to attend a course. Unless stated in the course details, you must book in advance of any event. Please do not turn up to a course without making a prior booking or before contacting us. You are responsible for getting approval to attend a course from your department or manager, where appropriate.


How to book

  • Check you are eligible to attend Bioinformatics courses by reading the eligibility policy
  • On the course details page check the Target Audience section to verify whether you qualify to attend

  • Once you submit your booking you will receive information via email about your booking status (confirmed, approval required, waiting list) and any applicable joining instructions)

If you have any queries please contact us.

Attendance approval

Some courses may require approval. You will be notified via email after you have expressed an interest in the course and you will either be asked to verify your status or your status will be confirmed on your behalf before your place can be confirmed.

Once you have booked a course, you will be sent an email confirming whether you have a place confirmed or have been placed onto the waiting list. Instructions for payment will also be included in this email.
