Terms and Conditions
Course Bookings are on a first-come-first served basis. Your place is only confirmed when full payment is received. If the applicant stops attending at any stage during the course for any or no particular reason, no refunds are given.
Payment can be made either online, through Card payment or Paypal or at our premises. You can also send a cheque by post or transfer to our HSBC bank account. However in this case you need to contact us so that we can register you provisionally.
Group discount When two or more people book a full course together as a group, the second and additional persons qualify for up to an 8% discount. This discount only applies to the course fee. Places are subject to availability.
Cancellation of Courses by ART CLASSES MALTA
1. ACM reserves the right to cancel or reschedule a course if a minimum number of students is not reached. Students will be notified if this number is not reached by at least 3 days before the first day of class. At that time, they will be given the choice of either enrolling in another workshop, availability permitting, or having their payment refunded. Students may continue to apply to workshops even after the deadline and through the first day of the course.
2. ACM reserves the right to substitute instructors of any course at the last minute or during the course. ACM also reserves the right to reschedule or cancel a course. Reasons for this may be, but not restricted to, low enrollment numbers, weather conditions and tutor availability. We will do everything possible to avoid such cancellations. If the course is cancelled, the student is entitled to a full or prorate refund (depending on the number of cancelled sessions).
3. We may be required to reschedule an individual class, lesson or course due to unforeseen circumstances. Wherever possible we will endeavor to offer the class at a later date. If it is not possible to reschedule the lesson a refund will be provided.
Cancellation by the Student
Once you have enrolled and made your booking and received your confirmation of enrollment you are deemed to have a contract with ACM. It is vital that students should consider both their availability and commitments carefully at the time of booking. You have the right to cancel your booking with us as follows:
1. You can cancel the course up to 4 weeks before the starting date of the course and will be provided with a 90% refund whilst 10% of the course fee is non-refundable and covers administrative costs.
2. If cancelled between 3 to 2 weeks before the starting date of the course a refund of 50% of the course fee will be provided to the student.
3. If the course is cancelled at any time during the week prior to the starting date of the course, no refund will be provided to the student under any circumstances. Last minute cancellations or non-attendance of booked delegates may deny someone on the waiting list for the course and the opportunity to attend.
4. No refund will be given for courses with a specified enrollment deadline if that deadline has elapsed. The same 1,2,3 student cancellation policies will apply for cancellations before the enrollment deadline.
5. If you are unable to attend a particular lesson, no refund will be given since courses are to be booked as a whole. However payment for a course not attended to, will be given as credit which can be utilized for any other future course within the following 6 months.
Parents/Guardians or students under the age of 18, or students if over the age of 18, are obliged to inform ACM and the teacher (in writing by way of a signed note or similar) of any medical, behavioural or allergic conditions relevant to the student’s behavior in class. Whilst ACM, takes all the necessary steps to offer a safe and comfortable environment, it cannot hold itself responsible for injuries which students might suffer during the course and/or excursions.
Students’ Behaviour in Class/Excursions
ACM, reserves the right without refund or compensation to terminate the studies of any individuals whose conduct is disorderly or unbecoming.
