What happens after I apply online?
You’re going to receive a confirmation after posting your registration form. Please note that this confirmation is only final when a receipt of payment is noted or (if appropriate) a Visa is about to be issued.
When do I have to pay the participation fee?
All participants from EU-countries are required to transfer their fee prior to the IYM. You’ll receive further details from our office after your online registration. Participants from Non-EU-countries may also pay the fee in cash on arrival.
When can I take part in the IYM?
The age limit for the IYM is 16 to 26 years. Unfortunately, interested teenagers who only turn 16 during the IYM won’t be able to take part for legal reasons.
Adequate language skills in English (Minimum B1) are essential for partaking in the IYM in order to fluently communicate with each other. Attention! – all the workshops take place in English!
A keen interest in the IYM's content
The content of the workshops and the examination of historic aspects are central components of the IYM. Therefore it is mandatory that all participants take a keen interest in the topic of national socialism and make a contribution to the IYM by actively taking part.
I am interested in the IYM's topics, but don't know much about the history of national socialism. Can I still take part?
Previous knowledge is not necessarily required, but we do encourage you to read up a little on the subject. That way you’ll be able to take more in and quickly take part in discussions.
What do I have to be aware of if I'm under 18?
Participants under 18 are under the supervision of the IYM Teamers. They also have to abide to German law. In order for you to take part we need your legal guardian’s signature. You can download the parent form here. Please print it out, have it completed and signed by your parents. After you have scanned it in PDF format, please upload it during the online application.
How can I withdraw my registration?
You have to notify the IYM office by post that you want to declare your withdrawal. Conditions on refunds of your participation fee are stated on your application form.
I would like to give a lecture or offer an activity.
We’re thrilled to have participants contribute to the IYM’s program. Please inform our office in time, so we can include your ideas into the schedule.
I can't get hold of anyone at the IYM office!
Unfortunately the IYM office is neither occupied all day long nor every day of the week. Try again! The most promising way to get hold of us is by sending us an e-mail (koke•kjr-dachau,de ).
