- The school assumes that the student will attend all the classes pre-paid by the student. However these classes can be rearranged as long as the student notifies the principal or the director of studies at least 24 hours before the class to be missed and the change is agreed and authorised by the principal or director of studies. For students on short-term study visas the rearranged class must be during their booked course period, i.e. not later than the end of the course. For students who are being subsidised, for example by their company or through benefits or grants from their country of residence, these classes would have to be rearranged within the booked course period.
- All fees must be paid in pounds sterling (GBP).
- All course fees must be received before the course starts. Sometimes it can take several days for the money to arrive if you send it through the banks. It is the student’s responsibility to make sure that it arrives in time. All PayPal or bank charges must be paid by the students.
- If a student chooses to pay for the course from a non-UK bank account by bank transfer (for example, by Internet bank transfer), an additional £15 will be charged to cover bank costs.
- If a student pays by credit card or international debit card (in the school) a charge of £3 will be added: there is no charge for UK debit cards, cash payments or cheques.
- Kheiron expects students to follow the rules we set. We expect students to behave reasonably at all times towards other students, school staff and accommodation providers and to respect cultural, racial and religious differences.
- The school can ask students to leave or not accept them into the school or into their homestay accommodation, without any repayment, for anti-social or illegal activity (for example, aggression, under the influence of or possessing illegal substances).
- Students will have to pay for any damage they cause on the school premises or at their homestay.
- Travel, examination fees and the costs of social activities are generally not included in the course price. These will be agreed based on the student’s particular requirements.
- The school accepts no responsibility for loss of students’ property or harm to students’ property. We strongly recommend that students are careful with their possessions and also buy insurance to cover their possessions, as well as medical insurance for themselves.
- The school may cancel or change a course or change the time of a course. If we do this, the school will offer an alternative at least cost-equivalent course, or give the student the relevant cost back subject to visa or subsidy restrictions.
- If the school is not able to offer a class at any time it will give at least two hours’ notice, and normally 24 hours’ notice, and an at least cost-equivalent class at an alternative time or day will be offered to the student or the student will receive the relevant cost back for the cancelled class as a refund, subject to visa or subsidy restrictions.
- Where there is only one person on a particular group course, we reserve the right to offer the cost-equivalent number of individual lessons.
- If your English level is not suitable for the course you have booked, we reserve the right to move you onto a different course or to refuse you admission to the school.
- Students will normally be expected to arrive at their homestay accommodation on Sunday and remain until the following Saturday morning and will be charged accordingly. For students wishing to arrive on another day, a nightly rate will apply (weekly rate divided by seven). All non-Sunday arrivals are subject to availability which may not be possible year-round – please check before booking.
- We will conﬁrm courses, including homestay, on the basis of receiving a deposit of 10% or £200 whichever is the larger at least two weeks before the homestay or course starts.
- A student will be asked to pay at least four weeks in advance for part-time tuition.
Full-time students (15 or more hours per week)
- A student will be asked to pay in advance of the full-time course starting.
- Once the course has started students can increase the number of lessons and will be charged pro-rata for the increase but students cannot decrease the lessons. However lessons may sometimes be deferred or transferred by special agreement with the school although not beyond twelve months and they may not be transferred to another student.
Students wishing to apply for a course needing a short-term study visa
- Kheiron would need the following in order to issue a letter to support an application for a short-term study visa:
- a scanned image of the student’s passport clearly showing the student’s photograph, name, date of birth, nationality and passport number;
- the address and contact details of the residence where the student will be staying for the duration of their course (if the accommodation is not to be organised by the school);
- the English level of the student (they must complete the school’s online placement test);
- the exact dates of study;
- the course and homestay fees in full (if the school is to organise the accommodation).
