Spanish Course Terms and Conditions
  • To reserve a place on a course, we require a pre-payment of €200 from the student. The balance can be paid on the first day of the course.
  • After receipt of this pre-payment is confirmed, the School will send the student an enrolment confirmation.
  • Course prices do not include accommodation, insurance, or airport transfers, unless otherwise stated.
  • Class size: a minimum of 3 students; a maximum of 6 students.
  • If the minimum number of students to form a class group is not reached (three students), two other options may be available for the same price (until the minimum of 3 students enrol in the same class group):
        1. In the case of a group of 2 students, they would be offered 15 hours of class a week instead of 20 hours/week.
        2. In the event that only 1 student enrols, the course will be offered as private classes (10 hours of private lessons a week instead of 20 hours/week group classes).
  • If a student cancels their course booking more than 15 calendar days before their course start date, the School will refund them 50% of their pre-payment (€100) and any other course fees they may have paid. If the student cancels their booking during the 15 days before their course start date, the School will not refund the student the €200 pre-payment. However, any other fees paid in advance will be refunded. Once the course has started, no refunds will be given in the event of cancellation. However, in the event of there being extenuating circumstances, the School may decide to make a concession to this rule.
  • To pay by bank transfer the School’s IBAN number and BIC/SWIFT code are required. Some foreign banks also require our bank’s address details:

    IBAN number: ES13 0081 0411 13 0001184429
    BIC/SWIFT code: BSABESBB
    Bank name: Banco Sabadell
    Bank address: Avda. Camí Nou 116, 46910
    Benetusser

  • All payments should be accompanied by the student’s name. Bank fees charged by the transferring bank will be paid by the student.
  • Language course and accommodation fees can be paid together in one single bank transfer. If the student wishes to pay in this way, they must make it clear in the transfer notes that they are paying for both the course and accommodation.
Accommodation Terms and Conditions
  • A week is 7 nights. For example, if a student enters their accommodation on a Sunday afternoon, they will leave on the morning of the following Sunday.
  • To reserve accommodation, €100 per person must be paid in advance.
  • To cancel an accommodation booking, a student must notify the School at least 2 weeks before the date they are due to enter their accommodation. If less than 2 weeks’ notice is given, the School will not refund the student’s advance payment.
  • If the student decides to cancel their accommodation after arrival, we are unable to reimburse any of the money they have paid for their accommodation. However, in the event of there being extenuating circumstances, the School may decide to make a concession to this rule.
  • Students can start and leave their accommodation on any day. Extra days will be invoiced when the decision is made to extend the stay (either before or after the student arrives in Spain). The ability of a student to extend their stay in their existing accommodation will depend on whether it is available beyond their original stay dates.
  • To pay by bank transfer the School’s IBAN number and BIC/SWIFT code are required. Some foreign banks may also require our bank’s address details:

    IBAN Number: ES13 0081 0411 13 0001184429
    BIC/SWIFT code: BSABESBB
    Bank Name: Banco Sabadell.
    Bank address: Avda. Cami Nou 116, 46910
    Benetusser.

  • All payments should be accompanied by the student’s name. Bank fees charged by the transferring bank will be paid by the student.
