There is a minimum enrolment period at the School of 1 week.
We do our best to ensure that students can study at their chosen time. Sometimes this may not be possible and your placement into a class may change in order to maintain the most effective learning environment for our students. The school cannot guarantee the time of a student’s course although every effort is made to comply with a student’s request. The school reserves the right to alter the timetable, cancel or combine classes when necessary, or make changes to course arrangements, without liability. No refunds can be given in such instances.

You must pay in full for tuition (and accommodation if required) before you can start a course at the School. You will not be able to start a class until complete payment has been made. Similarly, we must have total payment before we can allocate your accommodation. Full payment must normally be made at least two weeks before the student's first day in the accommodation.
For those students who require visas we strongly advise if you to pay in full to make sure that you don't have any immigration problems upon arrival that you pay in full. Home Office letters can only be issued once complete payment has been received by the School.
As shown on the enrolment form, all students enrolling in the School from outside the UK are subject to payment of the School's bank transfer fee of ￡10.
There is a standard charge of ￡50 for sending documents (Subject to country) to the student or his/her representative's address by international courier if required, for example, by DHL or another courier company.

Changes in course or accommodation arrangements
Course changes from one level to another are free of charge, but must be agreed by the Office Manager or a member of the academic staff.
Please note changes are possible in the course arrangements and accommodation before arrival however will be subject to a ￡40 amendment charge once the booking has been confirmed.
Students will be placed in and moved between classes if necessary to ensure that they are receiving the most appropriate level of tuition for their ability. Such changes must be approved by the Vice Principal.
Accommodation changes are usually possible and every effort is made to ensure that students are happy with their accommodation. No charge is made for students wishing to change their accommodation. If students are dissatisfied with their accommodation or a conflict of interest arises the Accommodation and Welfare Officer will ensure a change in accommodation is made as soon as possible. A surcharge may be added if frequent changes are made. If the type of accommodation is changed a charge of ￡40 is made. For example, if you want to change your homestay accommodation for another homestay then no charge will be made. However, if you want to change from a homestay to independent accommodation then a charge will be made.

Holiday must be booked at the latest on the Wednesday before the Monday that the holiday should start. No holidays should be taken without first informing the School Office. If you do not notify the School Office you will be marked absent and the School may notify the Home Office or immigration authorities, which may make it difficult for you to retain or extend your visa. This also applies if you take time off outside your holiday allowance when unscheduled leave form must be completed. No refunds will be given in these cases.
You are expected to attend classes every day that the School is open. The School must keep records of the attendance of students. No refunds or credits are given in respect of missed classes. The School is under the obligation to report Tier 4 General Students who miss 10 consecutive days on their course of study without reasonably granted permission within 10 working days of the 10th day of absence. See immigration rules.
Where possible we try to arrange accommodation as close to the school as possible, often within walking distance. The sooner full payment is made, then the better the chance of living close to the School. Students agree that they will leave the accommodation introduced to them by the School immediately if and when they no longer are students of the School, and that they will not attempt to make their own separate arrangements with the School's landlords or landladies.
Students unhappy with the accommodation arranged can inform the accommodations desk where alternative arrangements can be made. Students not wishing to take up the accommodation organised must give the school at least one week's notice, otherwise a fee equal to one week’s rent will be charged.
All students should behave well as guests of the family or landlady/landlord and should comply with the “Rules of the House” for the home. Students are responsible for any damage or expenses that may be caused by you at the accommodation.
Registration fees are as follows: ￡40 for accommodation finding fee and ￡45 for Registration fee for EU, SVV & ESVV students and ￡65 for GSV (Tier4) students. The ￡45 tuition registration fee may be reduced for some local bookings.
Students must have class books which can be purchased from the schools office or reception. Photocopies of books are not allowed and students will not be permitted into class without original copies. The cost for this is detailed on the price-list.
