Ethics & Engagement across the Wellcome Trust Major Overseas Programmes
The 2017 Spring School will be held in Durban, South Africa from 25-29 September.
This year we are calling it the Spring School (as opposed to Summer School) because September in South Africa is spring time.
For useful resources to help you prepare for the Spring School, please go to this webpage: http://e-mops.ning.com/page/spring-school-2017-preparation-useful-general-information-for-new

In the meantime, please be aware of the following:
A) If you know you will be attending the Spring School, please check whether you require a visa to South Africa.
In case you do need a visa, you will likely also need an invitation letter from us. Please let me (Dina) know as soon as possible so that I can arrange an invitation letter for you.
B) There will be a poster competition!

If you cannot meet this deadline, please print your poster out at home, and bring it to the Summer School. Unfortunately, we will not be able to print out any posters received after this date.
