However, we will transfer your course fee to the next available course. If you would prefer to have a refund, we hold the right to charge an administration fee for work already carried out. This will be subject to circumstances. Please confirm with the Course Co-ordinator that the course is proceeding prior to purchasing non-refundable air tickets.
