A registration or a pre-registration certificate will be issued only after the related due amount has been paid. All course fees and accommodation fees must be paid in full on the first day of the course at the latest.
The secretariat reserves itself the right to modify prices, dates and packages without prior notice.
Withdrawal and Reimbursement
The registration fee that has already been paid cannot be used at a later date neither can it be reimbursed except in the event of force majeure, such as a visa refusal with a written proof from the French Consulate, a serious disease with a certificate from a doctor, death of a relative (parents, brother, sister, child) testified by an official document or an accident leading to an injury certified by an official document.
The Institute may consider the reimbursement of a tuition fee only if one of the cases mentioned above is valid and testified.
Any request for withdrawal and reimbursement must be in written form. You may be reimbursed in the event of a force majeure when the registration is cancelled within 30 days before the starting date of the course or in the case of an anticipated departure. In that case, the school may consider a 50% reimbursement only if supporting documents are presented and if the request has been approved by STRALANG. Professional motives and obligations are not considered as cases of force majeure.
After the final registration, if the student began to attend classes, no refund can be made regardless the reason of the cancellation.
The school reserves itself the right to modify or cancel any course at any moment. If the school finds itself forced to cancel a course, the school will do its best to offer an alternative course to the student.
Private Classes: Any cancellation or rescheduling of a class by the student must imperatively be done before noon the day before the scheduled class; otherwise, the class will be charged to the student.
French Public Holidays / School Closed
Stralang is closed during all French public holidays and during some weeks of vacation throughout the year. The precise dates are posted on the noticeboard of the Institute.
Use of Images
The school may take photos of the students for their brochures or website unless a student expresses his disagreement. This request must be submitted in written form during the registration process.
Privacy and Digital Data
Students' personal data collected during the registration process are only transmitted to any natural or legal person expressly authorised to access said information.
Every student can request his/her personal data from the school and modify said data if need be according to the legal provisions of the “Loi Informatique et Libertés” N° 78-17 of 6 January1978 amended in 2004.
Entry and residency requirements in France for a long stay are regulated and different from those for a tourist visa. People coming from abroad are responsible for complying with French rules and laws (passport, visa, residence permit). They need to purchase a personal insurance in case of an accident, illness, or damages towards people and objects. Supporting documents will be requested.
Important! People applying for a French visa must send their application about two months before the starting date of the course.
European Union and Schengen area citizens are exempt from visa requests. Students from abroad declare having read and understood the requirements for obtaining a visa before starting their registration and payment procedures.
A pre-registration certificate will be delivered after payment of the tuition fee. It will be reimbursed (except for the processing fee of €100) in the event of a visa refusal, upon presentation, one day before the starting date of the course at the latest, of the official document from the consulate testifying the refusal. Past this date, no reimbursement can be considered regardless the reason of the cancellation.
In the event of an anticipated cessation of the course, any course that the student started to attend must be paid in full according to the registration form signed by the student. No reimbursement will be considered in the event of a late arrival or an anticipated departure.
Once the advance payment is credited on our bank account, we will send you upon your request, the pre-registration certificate corresponding to the chosen course(s) (this certificate is required by the French visa department).
Please note! If there is any delay in obtaining your visa, it may be exceptionally possible to delay (only once) the starting date of your course upon presentation of supporting documents. We recommend you to contact each Campus France within French consulates or embassies of said country as the visa application procedure may be different from one country to another and depends on the personal or professional status and financial situation of the applicant for a visa.
In any case, do not hesitate to contact us for any further information.
Only the school management board has the authority to take a decision as regards to a refund or to allow a student to recover a missed course.
Any claims as regards to our services at Stralang shall be sent by registered mail at STRALANG’s headquarter, 16 rue Jean-Henri Schnitzler 67000 Strasbourg France. This claim is to be sent the week following the end of the course.
In case of dispute, the parties agree that the case shall be judged under the jurisdiction of the Courts of Strasbourg.
Before travelling to France, you must check that you are insured for any medical expense or trip cancellation.
It is however strongly recommended to sign up for a complete civil liability insurance covering accidents, illness, theft, etc. The Institute disclaims all liability vis-a-vis their students during their travel and during their stay. Supporting documents will be required.
At the end of your courses, a certificate may be delivered by the Institute. It must be requested at the secretariat the last week of your class. This certificate will only be issued if the student has attended at least 70% of the scheduled classes. Any extended or unjustified nonattendance could lead to a dismissal or may be reported to the competent body of the Préfecture. Registration at any course at Stralang implies full acceptance of Stralang’s internal policy.
