In the case of cancellation three weeks or more before the course start date, the deposit of £250 will be retained. With less than three weeks' notice, 50% of the course fee will be retained. If cancellation occurs in the final ten days before the starting date the total course fee will be retained. There are no refunds if you leave the course once it has started. However, in the case of extreme or unavoidable circumstances such as serious illness, we may allow you to join a later course upon payment of a second course deposit (£250).
