  2. The full course fees must be received by the payment deadline listed in your place offer email.

  3. Your place on the course and fees paid cannot be transferred to another person.

  5. If you cancel your registration and notify us…

    • …before receiving a letter of enrolment, you will receive a refund of all fees paid except for the deposit (€300).

    • …after receiving a letter of enrolment, no fees will be refunded unless your visa application has been rejected (see below). This measure is in place to prevent visa fraud.

  6. If your visa application is rejected, you will receive a refund of all fees paid except for the deposit (€300). You will need to send us a copy of the rejection letter before the refund can be processed.

      • …less than 1 week before the course starts, you will need to repay the €300 deposit to join a later course. Any other fees paid will be valid for a future course taken within one year of postponement.

      • …after the course starts, you will need to repay the €300 deposit OR the prorated fees based on the amount of training received prior to cancellation, whichever amount is higher.

    • If you cancel your registration and notify us…

      • …at least 1 week before the course starts, you will receive a full refund of all fees paid except the deposit (€300).

      • …less than 1 week before the course starts, no fees will be refunded. However, a portion of your fees may still be valid if you wish to join a later course (see postponement terms above).
