Cancellation Policy – Spring Courses, Summer School and Study Tours
If you need to cancel your place, we will refund the full fee (minus a £40 cancellation charge) provided that you cancel at least 8 weeks before the course/tour commences. If you have to cancel after that date but more than 4 weeks before the start of the course/tour, we will refund 50% of the course fee. For cancellations less than 4 weeks prior to the start of the course/tour, no refund will be payable.
We do whatever we can to ensure that the courses/tours take place as advertised but we reserve the right to make changes or cancellations. In the unlikely event that we cancel any course or tour we will offer you full repayment of your fee.
Unforeseen circumstances may force you to curtail or cancel your course. We strongly recommend that you take out insurance to cover expenses for travel and accommodation as well as for the course fee should you have to cancel less than 8 weeks before the start of the course.
Unless your country of residence has a reciprocal arrangement with the UK that entitles you to free medical care, we urge you also to take out medical insurance to cover you during your visit to London.
