Who can attend this programme?

We express our gratitude to swissnuclear for their generous support, enabling us to extend partially funded tuition fees of 1100 CHFs to 25 applicants. This is your opportunity to take part in the Alumni Winter Camp, imbued with invaluable insights, at a fraction of the unassisted cost. The fee covers half-board (breakfast and lunch), course materials, facilities and the Gotthard tunnel experience. An additional 5 Alumni will be welcome to join at a full cost fee of 2200 CHFs.

This event is for Alumni of the WNU Summer Institute.

If you have participated in Winter Camp before, you are welcome to register to attend again. Our cohort will be thoughtfully composed, embracing diversity from across the world.

Priority for the partially sponsored spaces will be given in the following order:

  • WNU SI Alumni from Switzerland
  • SI Alumni who have not yet participated in this programme
  • Previous participants of SI Alumni Winter Camp

Once registration is complete, and you have been selected to attend, you will receive an invoice and payment will be due 14 days from receipt. If no payment or indication of payment is received after 14 days, we will assume you are no longer able to attend the Winter Camp and your space will be given to another applicant.

Travel to and from the Winter Camp venue is not covered by the sponsorship and will be at the expense of the individual.
