How do I pay for my course?
You pay for the course immediately when you register via Billetto, in this way you also secure your spot.

How do I know if I got a spot at a course?
It is first come, first served. When you register in Billetto, you pay the course fee, and thats how you secure your spot. When the courses are full, you can sign up for a waiting list and hope for a reserve place. 

Applications for the course period close 1/5!

What if I want to cancel?
- Cancellations are made by email to the course coordinator at: sara@nordisktljus.se
- The course fee and festival tickets are non-refundable *
- Food & accommodation can be canceled and refunded (eg service fees) until the start of the course
- If you cancel your spot later than two weeks before the start of the course, a cancellation fee * of SEK 300 is applied

* Our courses are mainly funded by a grant from Folkbildningsrådet which is governed by the number of participants and days - that is why we can have such low fees and offer discounts to those who need them. But if you do not show up, we will not receive a grant. The cancellation fee is a way for us to continue to keep prices low.
At the beginning of May, you will be notified if you have been offered a spot or not. You will then have about a week to say yes to your place or not. If you want to change something in your registration or delete it before the registration closes, email info@nordisktljus.se
