Other conditions There should be a minimum gap of one year between two courses, though it may be relaxed if an adequate number of participants is not available or it is essential for the teacher to fulfill eligibility conditions for career advancement.

A teacher interested in attending Refresher Courses (as per the requirements of career advancement) during the period of fellowship (FIP) should not be denied the opportunity as it supplements his/her professional development.

The UGC has decided to permit the teacher fellows to attend a Refresher Course provided :
He/she surrenders living expenses for the period he/she is attending the Refresher Course, and agrees to submit to the ASC an undertaking to this effect through the concerned research centre before joining the course.

The Refresher Course is attended in the subject that is relevant to his/her research.

No extension in the teacher fellowship is sought on these grounds.
