Private Lessons and Longer Courses

We offer private lessons and longer courses if students require it.

Registration, Contracting Party

To register, use the form in the brochure, and send this as early as possible to Eurocentres or to a Eurocentres contracting party. On confirmation of the registration by Eurocentres, the contract shall be deemed concluded, and the registration shall be binding. The course participant shall be defined as the person who takes part, or intends to take part, in the language course that is the object of this contract. The services listed in the prospectus shall be provided by third parties, and shall only be arranged by Eurocentres, unless it is specifically stated in the prospectus that Eurocentres will be providing the services itself.

Minimum Age

The course participant shall be deemed to be a Eurocentres contracting party, provided he or she is 18 years old or more. In the case of course participants who have not reached the age of 18, the contracting party shall be deemed to be the parent or guardian of the course participant. The registration application must be signed by this person, who must also give his or her exact address. This shall also apply when the age of consent is not 18 years in the country where the language course is taking place, or in which the course participant or his or her parent or guardian is resident.

Special regulations apply for participants under 18 years attending courses in South Africa. Before enrolling, please ask your Eurocentres adviser for a copy of the ‘Supplementary Information concerning South Africa’, and/or consult this on the Eurocentres website.

Information Provided on Registration

The contracting party hereby expressly confirms that the information provided at the time of registration for the language course shall correspond to the truth, and accepts that he or she may be expelled forthwith from the language course at any time should said information prove to be a misrepresentation (e.g. beginners who select a start date on which no beginners courses are available). In such an event the course fees shall not be refunded in any way, not even on a pro-rata basis. Potential participants who are unsure of their language level should tell their Eurocentres adviser that they wish to take the Eurocentres test.

Terms & Conditions of Payment

Course fees and any other fees as well as insurance premiums shall be payable six weeks before commencement of the course. The course fees and any accommodation fees shall fall due six weeks prior to the start of the course. Payment shall be due immediately in cases where registration is made less than six weeks prior to the start of the course. The fees shall be deemed as effectively paid only once they have been paid into the account specified by Eurocentres in the confirmation of registration. Where a client has to leave early, Eurocentres does not offer the option of transferring remaining course time to another individual.

Delay in Payment

Should payment not be effected by the aforementioned date, the contracting party shall be deemed to be in default. In such an event Eurocentres shall not be obliged to admit the course participant to the language course. The existence of a claim on the part of Eurocentres shall remain unaffected by the above.

Proof of Payment

At the start of the course, the course participant shall provide proof of payment of the course fees and, where applicable, of the accommodation and other fees. Should the course participant be unable to present such proof, he or she shall not be admitted to the classes or to the accommodation. In such an event Eurocentres’ claims shall remain unaffected.

Enrolment Fee

An enrolment fee of EUR 110 shall be charged for all arrangements and shall not under any circumstances be refundable.

Change Fee

If you request a change of school, course date or type of accommodation after your initial enrolment has been confirmed by Eurocentres, you will be charged a Change fee of EUR 75 which is payable at the time you request the change. You will not be charged this fee if you choose to extend your course. If we receive your change of booking less than 14 days before the course is due to begin, other costs may be incurred in addition to the booking change fee (e.g. for accommodation), which we will have to pass on to you. If after your initial registration you decide to attend a longer course at the same school, you will not be charged the change fee.

Payment Options

All transactions will be processed in South African Rands (ZAR). We accept credit card payments via the website and on request will supply our banking details should you wish to make payment via EFT or Direct Deposit.

Passport and VISA requirements

Many countries have passport and VISA requirements. Please inform yourself about such regulations and take the necessary measures. We shall be happy to provide information.

Insurance

It is advised that you obtain travel insurance from your home country before you come to South Africa to cover any medical expenses and other losses that might occur.

Minimum Number of Participants

Where the minimum number of 6 students required for each language course has not been reached, Eurocentres shall inform the contractual partner at least three weeks before the start of the course. Where Eurocentres is unable to offer the contractual partner an alternative language course, Eurocentres shall reimburse any paid fees. The contractual partner shall not be entitled to make any claims for having been inconvenienced or for other damages.

Changes to Prices, Dates or Programmes

Provided that no confirmation of registration has been issued, Eurocentres shall have the right at any time to change the dates and prices published in the course schedule, on the Internet or elsewhere. On conclusion of the contract, Eurocentres may amend the published programme of services, provided such amendments are unavoidable and negligible, are made in good faith and do not affect the overall style of the course. If material changes are made to key services, the contracting party shall have the right to withdraw from the contract or to request to join an equivalent language course, where Eurocentres is able to offer him or her such a course. Eurocentres shall immediately notify the contracting party of any such amendment. The contracting party must exercise his or her rights immediately after receipt of such notification from Eurocentres.

Public Holidays

The contracting party notes that the schools at the course locations are closed on public holidays and that no claims against Eurocentres shall accrue in his or her favour as a result.

Data Protection

We only record your personal data if you order a catalogue, ask for an offer, or book a course. The received information shall remain within Eurocentres and is generally not made available to third parties or other organizations.

    Companies that are not part of the Eurocentres organization are highlighted accordingly in the Eurocentres brochure and on the course confirmation.
  • Order the requested brochure as quickly as possible. To ensure quick processing, we may pass on your order to one of our contractual partners in your home region.
  • Comply with statutory regulations. In certain cases, we have to submit your information to the authorities (i.e. immigration authorities).

Your information is stored by Eurocentres, South Africa. Apart from offering you advice and processing your booking, your data is used for providing you with information about Eurocentres product news. Please inform us, if you do not wish to receive this service.
