Dress code

As people ask. There is no dress code during the day. For the evening we kindly ask for business casual, i.e. (formal) jacket but no tie, for the gents. Ladies on their own judgement.

Travel reimbursement

Since the site is reachable within the 'Semester-Ticket' of most of our partner universities, travel will only be reimbursed in cases where the use of this option is not possible. Costs related to the Graduate Day will be covered by HGS-HIRe. These costs will not be billed to your conference budget unless you cancel your participation in this event on short notice.
