Due to the work required to chart and plan our learners’ progression, in instances where a Customer has changed their mind after starting a Short Language Course (3 weeks or less) booking, our standard procedure is to issue a 30% refund less the Registration Fee until the end of the first teaching week. After the first week, 0% refund will be issued for the Course. For a Long Language Course (over 3 weeks) booking, our standard procedure is to issue a 50% refund less the Registration Fee until the end of the third teaching week. After this 0% refund is due.

After the first teaching week, no refund will be provided. The only exception to this rule is if the course includes a visa application and this visa application has been denied by the Home Office.
