Costs

Participation costs for international participants without accommodation in Dhaka are 150 euros or equivalent in Bangladeshi Taka (excl. 21% VAT). The fee includes accommodation in Dhaka and Sirajganj, programme costs, supervision, some social activities, field trips, working locations, presentations by experts and the awarding event. It does not include local transport, some meals, other daily costs. Participants are responsible for their own travel expenses (like plane tickets and some local travel), meals during working days and other personal costs.

For local participants, who do not need accommodation, this event is for free. This includes the above arrangements, except for the accommodation in Dhaka.

During past editions participants often successfully arranged financial compensation for their Wetskills participation from their university or employer. We therefore strongly encourage applicants to inquire about funding opportunities to compensate the costs (university mobility funds, travel allowance etc.).
