All course tuition, material and registration fees include VAT .
All the classes consist of at least 3 students. If the number of participants of same level in a course does not reached the minimum, the course will start in any case and the cost will be unchanged. Nevertheless, the school reserves the right to reduce the number of contact lessons, in consideration of the greater intensity of the lessons in such a small group: 2 students = 16 lessons / week. 1 student = 12 lessons / week.
Deposit and Payment
A non-returnable Registration Fee of €32 along should be sent with your application form on line and an accomodation fee of €50 if applicable..
The rest of the course fee is payable in full no later than three weeks before the course commences. Only after receiving the full payment we are able to issue a Confirmation of Enrollment.
If a course is booked less than three weeks before the commencement dates, full payment should be made on receipt of the course confirmation.
We reserve the right to cancel or terminate any course that has not been paid. Students will not be allowed to start their courses until payment has been received.
Please ensure that when you pay the fees you also pay the bank charges for the transfer so that the school receives the full amount. Shortfalls in payment will be requested and interest charged if need be.
Ensure when making your payment that you indicate who the payment is for.
A cancellation charge will apply according to the following scale:
up to 21 days before the course begins: registration fee
21 days to 10 days before the course begins: 50% of the total invoice
9 days or less before the course begins: 100% of the total invoice
If a course is cancelled due to an unsuccessful visa application, all fees paid to us (minus our bank charges, Registration and Accommodation Arrangement fees) will be refunded in full on receipt of written confirmation from the Visa Section of the Italian Embassy that your visa application has been unsuccessfu
