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 submitted in written form. Reimbursement may be considered in the event of a force majeure if registration is cancelled within 30 days before the starting date of the course or in the case of an anticipated departure.

After final registration, if the student has begun attending classes, no refund can be made regardless of the reason of the cancellation.

For a long stay in France, entry and residency requirements are imposed and are different from those for a tourist visa. People coming from abroad have to comply with French rules and laws (passport, visa, residence permit). They need to purchase a personal insurance covering accidents, illness, or damage towards people and objects. Supporting documents will be requested.
Warning: People applying for a French visa must submit their application forms 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 the tuition fee is paid. It may be reimbursed (except for the €100 processing fee) in the event of a visa refusal, upon presentation of supporting documents delivered by the Consulate one day before the starting date of the course at the latest. Past this date, no reimbursement can be considered regardless of the reason of the cancellation.
If the student wishes to stop attending a course, any started training has to be paid in full, as stated on 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 may send you a pre-registration certificate corresponding to the chosen course(s) if you request one (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 in your country as the visa application procedure may be different from one country to another and depends on the personal, professional, family and financial situation of the applicant.
In any case, do not hesitate to contact us for any further information.
Only the school management board is entitled to make decisions regarding refunds and missed classes.
