Expectations

Participation in all aspects of the course or study for which you have been granted a fellowship is mandatory. Fellowships are costly and in high demand, and we expect you to be highly motivated and participate actively in all elements of the course/study, for which you have been selected.

You are expected to show due cause to both Danida Fellowship Centre and the place of study, should you be prevented from participating. Absence from course activities without due cause will result in reduction in per diems and, should the absence be of a longer duration, may result in the termination of the fellowship.

This also means that any and all private travel during your stay in Denmark must be undertaken outside the course programme. Should you be late for or absent from course lectures, whether due to travel delays or otherwise related to private travel, such absence will likewise result in a reduction in per diems. All arrangements related to private travel will be your own responsibility.
