2. Conditions of payment
Upon receipt of our invoice, which will be mailed to you as soon as we have received your enrolment form, a down payment of 200 euros will be due with final payment due 30 days before the desired course begins. For courses lasting 10 weeks or more, the fees for the first 10 weeks must be sent before the course begins. The remaining fees can be paid in installments upon agreement.
3. Cancellation of enrolment
Cancellation can be made either by fax, phone, registered mail or e-mail. For a cancellation made up to four weeks before a course begins, a fee of 50 euros is payable. Up to 14 days before course start, 200 euros, and thereafter 500 euros is payable. In case of non-appearance without previous cancellation, a maximum of four weeks’ fee is forfeited. The course participant shall be entitled to provide evidence that in a specific case an appropriate amount is substantially lower that the flat rate amount. We recommend purchasing a trip cancellation insurance, so that in case of illness you will not lose your tuition fees.
4. Curtailment of course
A course can be curtailed when at least a four weeks’ notice is given. However, a long-term course with reduced course fees cannot be curtailed before the end of the first 10 weeks.
5. Absence at the beginning or during a course
In case of late entry or absence during a course, no refund of fees will be granted. The obligation to pay is not revoked by a delay in payment. Absence may not be compensated by free extension of the course.
6. School regulations
We request all students to abide by our house rules. In case of a severe offense, the school authorities reserve the right to exclude a student from a course. Partial reimbursement of the course fees is only possible for course durations extending more than four weeks beyond the exclusion of the student. In case of a long-term course with reduced course fees item No. 4 of these general conditions applies accordingly.
7. Responsibility for minors
The director of the Humboldt-Institut and / or an employee authorized by the director will assume responsibility for minors throughout the duration of the language course, i.e., this individual will assume the rights and responsibilities associated with the rights of parental custody.
The Humboldt-Institut will make every effort to duly fulfill the contract. In case of a claim for a refund the amount repayable shall be proportional to the amount paid, but in no case greater than the total amount paid. The Humboldt-Institut e.V. does not hold liability in case of non-fulfillment
of obligations under contract resulting from force majeure or strike.
