October Half Term Course
FAQ

Face-to-Face Course

Yes, you would need to take the full 5 days, Monday - Friday.

We advise taking the full course (all subjects) in order to maximise the benefits of the short 5-day course, especially as the subjects complement and support one another. However, we understand that this is not possible for everybody, so we do allow each student to select the subjects they wish to take in order to tailor the learning to their individual requirements.

Please note that priority will be given to those who book the full course (all subjects).

Please complete your booking form with your desired subjects. You will receive an email with the balance alongside payment details. We will then be in touch in due course to confirm the timetable!

Your space on the course is not guaranteed until full payment is received, so we advise you to make the payment as soon as possible! Our final deadline for payments will be 23:59 on the 3rd October. If we have not received the payment by this date, sadly we will not be able to offer you a place on the course.

We understand that circumstances can change and you may need to withdraw from the course.

We offer 100% refunds up until the 2nd October.

We offer 75% refunds up until 9th October.

Unfortunately from the 10th October onwards we are unable to offer any refunds.
