Registration for APTS

Student registration for APTS academic year 2020-21 opens on Friday 25th September 2020, and closes on Friday 30th October 2020. Registration applications made after that date will be kept in a priority-ordered reserve list, in case of any cancellations.

** Contingency planning for 2020/21 **
The coronavirus pandemic means that the future is a little less predictable than has generally been the case in recent times. There is a possibility that one or more of the APTS weeks planned for 2020/21 may not be able to go ahead as a face-to-face event. If we are unable to have sufficient confidence that an APTS week can proceed safely then an online alternative will run in its place. This is expected to take the form of recorded video lectures covering equivalent content, as well as the accompanying written materials (preliminary reading, lecture notes, and assessments). There will also be opportunities for live online interaction with the module leader and other participants, the exact nature of which will vary depending on what is most appropriate for the content of the module, but may take the form of problem classes or guided computer practicals over video conferencing software. Should an APTS week be replaced by a "virtual" alternative then no accommodation/meal costs will be charged to a student's sending institution. The original registration fee for the APTS week, which covers administrative and delivery costs that will not be lessened by such a cancellation, will still be levied and will be subject to the usual Billing and Cancellation policy.

Students can only be registered for APTS weeks by their "sending institution" (i.e., their home department): a list of these institutions appears below.

  • If your department wishes to register as a sending institution, then please click here;
  • If your department wishes to commit to being a full Member Institution of APTS, then please click here.
    (All Member Institutions are automatically "sending institutions".)

If your department is included in the list below, the APTS contact (who must be a member of academic staff employed by that institution) will be provided with a password enabling them to complete the student registration form for 2020-21 APTS weeks. (The student registration form also gives full information on cost.)

The principles and practicalities of student registration and payments include:

  • date of application within the registration period is unimportant --- it is not used in determining the allocation of APTS places to students (see the APTS Constitution for the list of priorities)
  • sending institutions are invoiced by APTS for the registration fee, and for accommodation/meal costs, of their students who are allocated APTS places
  • in the case of a student taking all four APTS weeks in the same academic year a 20% rebate of registration fees (20% of 4 x £160) is made
  • all financial transactions with individual APTS students, including those relating to travel expenses, are handled by the sending institution

Please see the FAQ, the Billing and Cancellation policy, and the Privacy notice for more specific information, and the list of prerequisites if you are in any doubt as to whether APTS would be suitable for a particular student.
