How to Register in Online Workshops in the Festival

To enroll in online workshops, click the link associated with the course you want to take. The link takes you to a listing of the course (with complete details, including fees) on UI Learn. When registration for the course has opened, an "enroll" button will appear with the course. Click the enroll button! You will create an account (you will use this same account if you take other courses later). You will be directed to enter your credit card information.

For online courses in the Festival, this is the only method to enroll. We're not able to enroll you by phone on this particular platform.
