Group courses

Tuition from a group course cannot be transferred to cover the costs of an individual course. To change date, level, and kind of course, the authorization of the director is necessary. The school reserves the right to cancel a group course for underenrollment and to suggest an alternative course of equal value. The starting dates of the group courses are obligatory only for absolute beginners.

Individual courses

Changes in the times of individual lessons, standard and flex, must be communicated by 6.00 pm on the day before the lesson. In the case of lessons arranged on a Monday, changes must be made by 4.00 pm of the preceding Friday. For standard individual classes a maximum of two schedule changes will be accepted (after which all lessons will be as per the schedule and will be charged at the full rate.)

Cancellations

The cancellation must be sent via fax, post, or email. Course balance reimbursements (difference between deposit + registration fee and the total balance) are given only when cancellation is communicated 4 full weeks before the starting date of the course. The deposit and registration fee are not reimbursable in any case.

Housing

Italiaidea provides assistance finding accommodation to students only upon receipt of the 30% deposit for the chosen course. This service has an extra charge of 20 Euros in addition to the registration fee. Accommodation fees must be paid on the day of arrival directly to the landlord/lady.

Student Visa

In cases where a student visa is necessary, Italiaidea furnishes the necessary documentation as required by the Consulate and the Italian Embassy. To receive this documentation, Italiaidea requires the payment of the registration fee and of the deposit for each month of intensive course at Italiaidea (this may vary according to special request from the Italian Embassy in the country of origin).
