Payment of fees

A deposit of £300 must be paid on enrolment. £75 of this is a non-returnable registration fee. Full fees should be paid at least four weeks before the course start date. When we have processed your application, we will send you confirmation and an invoice. We will send accommodation information as soon as we can, but only after full fees have been received.

Cancellations and refunds

In the case of cancellations received in writing more than four weeks before the course start date, the registration fee (£75) will be charged. For cancellations received less than for weeks before the course start date, one weeks’ tuition and accommodation will also be charged. No refunds can be made after the course has started.

Insurance

All students are advised to take out insurance against cancellation, as well as comprehensive medical, personal and travel insurance. For students aged under 18, this is a requirement. Please send us the details of the policy and policy number.

Accommodation

For all host family accommodation the following conditions apply:

Host family accommodation is only available for students studying at Bath English Study Tours. The school will try to find alternative accommodation for students who have a valid reason for moving.

If a student requests a change for any other reason, a charge of £25 will be made.

Cancellation of accommodation is subject to one week’s notice.

Airport transfers and meeting services

We will do our best to assist you with airport transfers. Flight details should be sent at the time of booking, and transfers and meeting services should be paid for with the tuition fees. There are no refunds possible for services not used by the student. Please be aware that late arrivals and early departures may mean it is necessary to stay in a hotel at the student’s expense.

Limits of Liability

Bath English Study Tours does its utmost to ensure the safety and well-being of its students. Staff are always ready to respond to any requests for help, or to assist with any difficulties students may have.

Please note, however, that we accept no responsibility for any loss, damage, injury, illness or inconvenience sustained by a student during participation in any activities, whether educational, social, recreational or involving transportation, organised by or associated with Bath English Study Tours, or while in accommodation arranged by Bath English Study Tours. This also applies in the case where BEST acts as an agent, or recommends a third party to provide a service. Any additional expenses that result from a deficiency in the service shall be borne exclusively by the student.

  • have read and understood these terms and conditions;
