Registration, Refunds, & General Policies of Workshops

Registration, Refunds, & General Policies of Workshops

1- Age Requirement

Trainees MUST be professionals or university students. No exceptions.

2- Registration

  • Applicants must pre-register online and then confirm their registration by paying their fees in full one week before the start of the workshop and they are not guaranteed a seat until they have done so. Please check your eligibility for a discount.
     
  • Workshop fees can be paid in any of the following methods:

    1. Bank wire transfer to Qatar Foundation account:
    Account Holder: Qatar Foundation
    Account Number: 0013024171001
    IBAN: QA19QNBA000000000013024171001
    Please send the payment receipt and transaction number to the following email adress: mbushara@hbku.edu.qa

    2. Debit or credit card payment, please contact us prior to your visit by email: mbushara@hbku.edu.qa or Tel#: 44542523 to book a suitable time between 8:00 am to 4:00 pm from Sunday to Thursday at office # A1011 located on the 1st floor of the Liberal Arts and Sciences (LAS) Building at Education City (you can follow this Google Maps).
  • Registrants from outside Qatar are solely responsible for securing their entry visa to Qatar. TII will support their visa application by sending them an invitation letter confirming their registration in the workshop after fulfilling their payment.

3- Cancellation

  • The Translation and Training Center reserves the right to cancel workshops due to lack of sufficient enrollment.  In that case, trainees will receive a full refund of their tuition fee. Trainees may also choose to apply their tuition to another workshop.
  • After paying the relevant workshop fee, a trainee may cancel their registration and receive a full refund. This, however, must be done 48 hours before the start of the workshop (no exceptions). A cancelation request must be sent to the registration coordinator to this effect.
  1. A copy of Qatari ID, the original Qatar Foundation receipt and POS-transaction slip (customer copy) should be provided. In case the fees were paid through a bank wire, a copy of the confirmation letter should be provided.
  2. The Translation and Training Center will work with QF Finance to secure a refund for the trainee. The process can take up to 2 to 3 months.
  3. Refunds are made directly to the trainee’s credit or debit card or to his bank account if the fees were paid through a bank wire.
  • If a trainee wishes to change a workshop he registered in and paid for, to another announced one, he or she must request a change by sending an email to the registration coordinator before the start of the first workshop (and NOT after it started).
  1. Given that the fee for workshops may be different, a change of workshop is granted to an equivalent one (same registration fees).
  2. The trainee is required to cover the difference in tuition in case there has been an increase during the change period.
  3. The trainee is required to cover the difference in tuition in case he or she is changing to another non-equivalent workshop. 

4- Safety and Conduct

  • All trainees are responsible for following safety guidelines in case of an emergency. Smoking is not allowed in the building.
  • All trainees are expected to conduct themselves in a manner that demonstrates respect for TII and its staff, fellow trainees, property and cultural differences if any.
