Conditions

Please read the following conditions carefully before booking your course. Please also read the Student Selection Policy on our School Policies page. We reserve the right to reject an application based on this policy.

1. Acceptance of Enrolment
Acceptance of enrolment, evidenced by confirmation of the Student’s booking, will constitute a legally binding agreement, governed by English Law, for the period specified on the enrolment form. Students’ statutory rights are not affected by the conditions below.

2. Payment
All fees in respect of services specified on the Application for Enrolment are due for payment in full 14 days before the starting date. The School reserves the right not to provide such services in the event that such fees have not been paid by the due date. A 2% surcharge will apply to all credit card transactions. Surcharges do not apply to debit card transactions. For payment by bank transfer, please contact the School to receive our bank details. The Student is responsible for all foreign and UK bank charges. Please note that bank transfers may take 5 to 6 working days to reach our account. Please allow for this. It is essential that the Student’s name and invoice number is clearly stated on the bank transfer documentation. Please see How to Pay.

3. Cancellation by the Student
i. During the 14-Day ‘Cooling Off’ Period
If the Student has booked their programme via email or the internet (a ‘distance contract’), they are entitled to a 14-day ‘cooling off’ period. During this ‘cooling-off’ period the Student  may cancel their booking for any reason within 14 days and receive a refund of all fees minus any bank charges. If the Student cancels during the ‘cooling off’ period described above, the School wll refund the fees within 14 days of the date that the Student informs the School that they wish to cancel. However, if the Student has requested the School provides services during the cooling off period, the School is entitled to charge a reasonable sum for the services. For an English course, this will be based on the proportion of the Course the Student has undertaken and the overall cost of the Course. The School can deduct this sum from any refund payable.

ii. Outside the ‘Cooling Off’ Period
The Student may cancel their programme for whatever reason, but if the cancellation is outside the ‘cooling off’ period as described in 3i, or if no ‘cooling off’ period applies, they will be liable for the following proportion of the total tuition fees:
• 15+ days before the start of the course – deposit only (£200)
• 7-14 days before the start of the course – 50% plus deposit (£200)
• less than 7 days before the start of the course – 75% plus deposit only (£200)
• no refunds are given once the course has started
In the case of cancellation less than 7 days before the start date, 1 week’s accommodation will be charged (if applicable). In the case of a refund, bank charges will apply.

4. Cancellation by the School
In the event of the course being cancelled by Lewis School of English, applicants will be offered an opportunity to transfer their payment to a future course or receive a full repayment. The School reserves the right to cancel a programme without any liability no later than 14 days prior to the course start date.
