PAYMENT: MGC Notification
The Erasmus/LUMC Research School MGC has made a selection of courses it deems fit for its members. This course is not one of them.
Therefore, the Erasmus/LUMC Research School MGC will not pay for its members to participate in this course. All MGC-members will need to pay themselves (or from personal budget) after receiving an invoice (please provide personal address) or will have their research departments pay for them (in that case, please provide ‘kostenplaatsnummer’ of the research group).
