I have recently received an email from my university. I'm referring to the third paragraph.

I received this because I attended a employability soft-skills improvement event.

Does this mean that I have to pay them or Is it like a paid internship where we get paid.

My guess is we need to pay them, I need some clarification.

I would think that a "paid certificate program" in this case is a program you pay for that gives you some certificate. For example, I have a certificate that says I know how to perform CPR, and I had to pay for the class that I got that certificate from. I could probably call that class a "paid certificate program."

So I think yes, you need to pay them.
