Cancellation/Refund Policy

[Last updated: 14/02/2024]

This refund policy covers two eventualities: 1. We cancel. 2. You cancel. In either eventuality, this policy deals only with the course fee: the cost of travel, accommodation and any other costs/expenses are not covered by, nor relevant to, this policy.

  1. We cancel

    If we were to cancel the course, for any reason, any payment(s) you have made for the course fee would be refunded.  Please note that there is a minimum number of participants required to make a course viable.  If that number is not reached then cancellation is possible, up to 2 months before the start date of the course.  However, as of February 2024, this has never happened.

  2. You cancel

    If you need to cancel your attendance on the course for health reasons you would be refunded, upon presentation of a doctor’s note, 50% of the course fee that you have already paid. The course fee is not refundable for any other reason.

Please note:

  1. It is not possible to roll your fee over to next year (or any subsequent year) for any reason.
  2. The course fee is not transferable 
  3. This Refund Policy will be reviewed regularly. You will be notified of any updates.
