Frequently Asked Questions about the EGG school

1. About the travel

1.1. When is the best time to arrive and to leave?

Arrival: Sunday 21 July. Departure: Saturday 3 August.

1.2. Do I need a visa?

See this page for an informative description of the situation.

2. About the hostel

2.1. What kind of place are we staying in?

A student hostel/dorms of the Novi Sad university.

2.2. Do I need to do anything in order to book my hostel room?

If you are correctly registered, no. People who are registered and requested a space in the hostel, automatically have rooms allocated in the student-hostel where we all stay.

2.3. Is there enough room for all of us?

Yes (since we limit the amount of participants!)

3. About the registration

3.1. What happens if I submit my registration form several times?

Only the last one will be counted.
(If you submit them with the different names, then they will all be counted and you will receive the shame-of-the-egg punishment for giving additional work to organisers.)

3.2. If I register, can I later decide to withdraw my registration?

Yes, of course! Just send a msg to and you will be automatically removed from the list of participants.
We do request though that you tell us before June 1st.

3.3. What is this stuff about a mailing list?

When you register, you are automatically subscribed to a mailing lists for annoucements about the school and for general discussion. (Notice that you must remain on that mailing list as long as you are registered with the school, we need a way to reach you!)

4. Grants

4.1. Are grants really only for Central/Eastern Europe?

Yes. See the blurb on the purpose of the school for a brief explanation of why this is. It would be great if we could give out more money, but we're on a shoestring budget and it's already difficult like this... We're pretty flexible on what counts as 'east' though ;-)

4.2. What about people from Central/Eastern Europe living abroad?

That's to be seen on a case by case basis. But in general preference is given to those living out of reach of all these nice dollars ;-)

4.3. Is it true that grants are given only to people who stay for the whole school?

Yes! And we are pretty strict on this (see question 4.5)

4.4. When will I know if I received a grant?

Since the deadline for applications is 15th may, it'll be a little after that: around end May.

4.5. I have a travel grant, how does reimbursement proceed?

You are expected to pay your travel, and then be reimbursed during the school. The reimbursement will be at the end of the school. We will be pretty strict on this, as there has been some abuse in the past.

5. About the classes

5.1. Are all classes in English?


5.2. Am I supposed to attend all the classes?

No way! This school is supposed to be benefit you, not stuff too much down your throat! So attend as much as you can digest, and only the parts you are really interested in.

5.3. Can I attend classes from both tracks?

Yes, of course.

5.4. When will the schedule be known?

Scheduling is a long and difficult process. Wish us luck...
