To book your place on this course a non refundable deposit of £300 must be paid upon registration. The deposit amount is taken off the fee. You can choose to pay more £300 on registration but only the £300 will be non refundable. If the course is cancelled, we will return your payments to you including the deposit.

We will also endeavour to re-organise the course to another date which you can transfer your fees to free of charge.

You can opt to pay the full fee amount on registration or set up a standing order to help spread the payments.

We cannot guarantee a shared room unless there is someone suitable for you to share with who has also booked. The earlier you book the more chance you have of getting a shared room. If there are none available you will have to pay the own room rate.

*Registrations from 26th July to 28th Sept must be paid in full upon booking and may incur an additional £50 admin fee to deal with rebooking of accommodation and additional tutors.
