The student is bound to the registration until the confirmation of the language school, at the most 16 days after the entry date of the enrolment. 

2. Content of Contract and Payment Information Upon acknowledgement of course confirmation the student enters a contract directly with the language school. The balance of the payment will be made directly to the school. Currency conversions on the website are based on the daily exchange rate and will fluctuate with the daily variations in the exchange rate. For the pre-payment the exchange rate of the day will be applied. The currency of the school always applies.

4. Cancellation

  3. 16-30 days before course start: 60% refund
