General Terms and Conditions

Italian language courses:The Italian language courses are held from Monday to Friday. Every lesson is 45 minutes long. On the first day students will do a placement test to determine their starting language level. The entry test, any other possible test done during the course or at the end of it, is considered part of the lesson.

The maximum number of participants in a course is 10. In the unlikely event there are less than three students of the same linguistic level, their course will be guaranteed but it will be considered as a semi-individual or individual and the length of the lessons will be reduced of 60%. This has to be seen as an upgrade if compared to the booked course.

Lessons are not held on the following public holidays: 01-01; 06-01; "pasquetta" (Easter Monday); 25-04; 01-05; 02-06; 15-08; 01-11; 08-12; 25-12; 26-12. Please note that lessons lost on public holidays will not be refunded.

Certificate of attendance: At the end of the course, every participant will receive a certificate of attendance where the number of the lessons attended, his/her linguistic level and the general content of the lessons will be certified. If you need an intermediate and/or final assessment in order to get credits for a University having an agreement with our school, please talk to the Director of Studies on your first course day.

Accommodation:The accommodation provided by the school is only available to course participants. Arrivals are only possible on Sundays before the course start and departures are on Saturdays following course finish date. If you have any problems related to your flight, it is possible to anticipate the arrival on Saturday and postpone the departure on Sunday. It is not permitted to stay in the accommodation longer without attending the course.

Enrollment and Charges:To enrol you have to fill in the on-line form. With your application you commit yourself to the booking conditions. You will receive your invoice by e-mail. At this point, when the invoice is issued, your booking will be considered effective. A deposit of 25% of the total amount is due when you receive the invoice. The invoice must be paid in full at latest four weeks before departure. The only form of payment we accept is by bank transfer; the account number will be on the invoice. Please write your name, surname and invoice number on the causal.

Visa: In order to issue a student visa, you have to apply to the nearest Italian embassy/consulate providing the school letter of acceptance. According to the Italian law, in order to get the school letter of acceptance, the total amount of the booked course must be paid. In case of visa refusal, the student must provide the school with the letter of refusal issued by the embassy/consulate at the latest 14 days before departure. The school will immediately see to refund the entire sum charged. The visa letter can be sent by e-mail without extra costs or by carrier; in this case all the expenses are to be charged to the student. We advice to book the language course as soon as possible.

Cancellation fees: A cancellation will only be effective when we receive written confirmation of the cancellation. If you cancel within 30 days before departure we will retain 25% of the total booking cost. If you cancel less than 30 days prior to departure, we will retain 50% of the invoice total amount. After the arrival date, there is no refund in any circumstances.
