pay the balance by the due date will result in the deposit being forfeited.

payment of any outstanding balance and at least and a written notice being received by the academy, who
reserves the right to change and confirm another date – subject to availability. The applicant can make only

course and you will not be entitled to a refund of any fees paid or offered an alternative start date or course.

Classes will not be delayed to wait for latecomers, and teachers are not responsible for repeating work missed.
Class hours can be varied at the discretion of the Academy.
