Wildcards – Regulations

As a token of appreciation to the organizers of our BioSB courses, the BioSB Education Committee and the BioSB Board have launched a wildcard system:

  • For each course organised, one wildcard per day and one bonus wild card per course (that is, 6 wild cards for a 5-day course) will be made available every 2 years; 
  • Wildcards are valid for 2 years;
  • Wildcards are handed out to the course coordinator(s) and can be distributed among the contributing lecturers;
  • 1 wildcard entitles 1 student to participate in a (3, 4 or 5 day-) course; 
  • A maximum of 6 wildcard participants per course applies (first come, first served);
  • Registration with a wildcard must be done at least 6 weeks before the start of the course;
  • The use of a wildcard must be requested from Petra Aarnoutse by email, with ‘Wildcard’ mentioned in the subject line and the wildcard as attachment; 
  • For each course Petra will keep track of how many wildcards have been issued and used. She will also provide regular updates of this to the course coordinators.

The wildcard system applies to all BioSB courses organized after June 1st, 2024. After one year the BioSB Education Committee and BioSB board will evaluate the wildcard system to see if any changes need to be made.
