Before the beginning of the course:
Students have the right to postpone their course within a period of 6 months. Only one postponement can be made and a written request must be received by the school at least 15 business days before the starting date of the chosen courses. In case of cancellation or absence of the final registration, the administration fees – 150€ - are non-refundable. In the case of late cancellation (3 working days before the beginning of classes) the non-refundable fees are increased to 250€.
After the beginning of the course:
Once the courses have begun, and in case of one or more absences in various courses, no deferment or reimbursement can be made for any reason whatsoever
However, in the case of serious illness and/or incapacity justified by a medical certificate, preventing the student from participating in a course for over 4 consecutive weeks, the student can ask to be refunded for the missed tuition (except the annual registration fee which remains the property of the Nationsorg association) or to postpone the course within a limit of 6 months after the date of interruption of the course.
In case of deferment or refund, the weekly price of classes will take into account the actual number of weeks of classes taken in strict consecutive way, after making the deduction of weeks cancelled or postponed. Thus, if the number of actual consecutive weeks leads to a change of the weekly rate, the calculation base for refund or deferment will be made on the new weekly rate. A written demand, accompanied by all justifying documents, must be received by the Nationsorg association within a maximum of 15 days after the date of interruption of the course. A postponed course will not be refunded or transferred to another student’s account.
If the case of refund of a course, only the students who were present and who signed the attendance sheet at the courses’ office will be refunded in proportion to the number of hours.

Postponing of the date of the training ending will be not accepted.
For groups (mini groups 2-5 persons and groups 6 to 15 persons), cancellation/postponement of a class during a session according to the specific terms COURS PER DEMAND is valid only for the whole group and not individually.
