    1. Dear Ismail,
      The price is for the course, as given by the National Agency. The application gives you separate money for accommodation and food. We recommend ideas of accommodation, but usually do not arrange food because of individual preferences.

    to pre-register for the Erasmus + “Make technology your friend!” course (https://erasmusplusdominou.wordpress.com/make-technology-your-friend/) location Malta period 04-12.10.2018.
    I am a beneficiary of the mobility of the ERASMUS PLUS KA1-Learning Mobility of Individuals program – School education staff mobility.
    I am a computer lab technician at an Italian higher education institution.
    To date I have not received an answer and / or confirmation of enrollment in the aforementioned course and therefore I can not proceed with the bureaucratic requirements (flight and hotel reservation) through the school office.
    Please can you check and reply to me?
    Thank you and good day.
