Acceptance on to the programme
Acceptance on to the programme is by application and selection via a competitive process. All applications are reviewed by the Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership (CISL)'s Selection Committee and approved by the programme’s Academic Advisory Committee, Institute of Continuing Education, and the Degree Committee of the Department of Architecture.
The CISL seminar/workshop process involves group work which can be disrupted by the absence of a delegate from any part of the event. Participants are therefore required to be in residence on-site throughout the programme and be able to attend all sessions.
Membership of our alumni network is also conditional upon full attendance.
Applying for a visa for entering or studying in the United Kingdom
Please note that all programme participants are responsible for arranging their own visa for entry into the UK, should one be required. The residential components of the programme are of short duration and this influences the type of visa that will be granted. CISL can provide an official invitation letter for the programme in order to facilitate the obtaining of a visa specifically for the dates on which the residential components of the programme takes place. If you will require this, please contact us no less than four weeks prior to the programme date.
Programme places are only confirmed once the required financial guarantees have been received. Invoices are payable within 30 days of invoice date.
Cancellations are usually non-refundable. A request to intermit will be subject to approval and is not granted automatically. Programme places are not transferable.
Accompanying spouses/wider participation
Unfortunately, it is not possible to cater for accompanying spouses or other guests. The seminars are very intensive, and numbers of participants restricted, thus only delegates and speakers may attend the sessions.
In the event of non-payment, we reserve the right to refuse admittance to programme events. Within accredited programmes, submitted assignments will not be assessed and the candidate will not be recommended for an award of credit.
