School Extenuating Policy concerning COVID-19

On March 13th, the ministry of Education in Malta announced a complete suspension of all educational establishments extended until mid April, with the aim to slow the spread of COVID-19 in Malta.

In response and in light of such circumstances, we are providing the following coverage for COVID-19 under our extenuating circumstances policy to help protect our learning community and provide peace of mind to all our students.

Policy Circumstance

This policy is afforded to those participants whose activities got directly suspended and cancelled until further notice due to the COVID-19 directive. This includes courses and/or activities which were to commence or were scheduled to continue running between March 13th and mid April (or until suspension period lasts) and which for logistical and learning modality limitations could not be transferred online or which if taught and delivered online would have impacted the student learning experience drastically.

These courses and activities include: Classical realism, and Portrait Drawing and Painting, which courses includes drawing and painting from life models. The plein air workshops and life drawing activities.

Account Credit Policy

Whilst this policy is already included in our General Terms and Conditions all students who fall within the policy criteria will be compensated through full account credit until suspension lasts, which credit maybe redeemed on any future course or activity within a period of 18 months.

 

For all other student and ordinary cancellations our General Terms and Cancellation policy will remain applicable.
