3. As soon as registration is confirmed, the course material and the personal chart will be sent to the student.

4. The course supervisor is obliged to return the completed assignments within seven days after receiving the assignments; both corrected and furnished with comments. Exceptions to this rule are situations beyond the control of the supervisor, e.g. sickness and holidays. The student will receive notice when this occurs.

5. A good student-supervisor relationship is essential. The supervisor will do everything he can to guide the student through the material. The student should always be polite. If according to the supervisor inappropriate behaviour takes place the student will receive one warning. If the student persists he will loose all rights.
