3. Course changes
For course changes before or during the stay, the school has the right to charge an administrative fee proportional to the complexity of the case. If the change takes place before the start of the language stay and within the time limits imposed by the chosen school (see p.4), the school will notify the school abroad and issue a new, updated invoice, if applicable. Once the chosen course has begun, we recommend making arrangements directly with the school abroad for any desired course change.
4. Cancellation / Withdrawal from enrollment
In case of termination of enrollment in a chosen course, this must be communicated to the school in writing as soon as possible. A processing fee of 350.- CHF is still charged for the cancellation/return of an enrollment received by the school within 30 days before the start of the course, and the cancellation conditions of the school chosen for the stay apply. If there are no special cancellation conditions of the chosen school, if the cancellation takes place more than 30 days before the start of the course the following percentages are applied with respect to the cost of the full course (course + accommodation + any other optional extras required): from 29 to 15 days before the start of the course 30% of the amount from 14 to 1 day before the start of the course 50% of the amount.
After the start of the course, no refund will be possible if the course is dropped or interrupted. For all cancellation terms, the following rule applies: if the school abroad in question says it is willing to reimburse the cost or part of the cost in an amicable manner, the school will turn over to the client the full amount granted by the selected school.
