Refund Policy

Please note - the deposit is not refundable.

  • 2. In case of cancellation, if you have paid all your fees in advance, we will refund your fees minus the deposit of £300 (and any applicable bank charges), provided you notify the school at least 17 days before the start of your course. If you cancel your course after this notice period, no tuition fees are refundable, but we will refund your accommodation fees minus the first two weeks' costs. 
  • 3. Once you have started your course, tuition fees are not refundable or transferable. Accommodation fees can be refunded minus the specified notice period of one week for homestay and two weeks for residential accommodation..
  • 4. There is no reduction or refund for occasional absence, late arrival or early departure or extended personal holidays. Nor are there any refunds for public holidays. 
  • 5. We strongly advise all clients to take out personal insurance to cover loss of fees in the event of course cancellation or early termination.
