Booking Terms

Availability

Please check availability during peak season (July, August) directly with the school.

Please note: if you are a complete beginner we do not normally have classes open for your level. There may be a beginner level class open at special times throughout the year but this is not guaranteed and is subject to availability. Please check with the school in advance. The price for a beginner level course is £250 per week – if available. If a student arrives at the school and has not informed us that they are a beginner IH Belfast reserves the right to offer a course of equal or greater value or to refund payment.

Payment

For full fees including course and accommodation supplements please refer to the ‘Dates and Fees’ or contact the school.  For individual bookings a deposit of £100 is required.  Full fees are due before the start of the course. Please note that the client is responsible for all bank charges. We regret that we cannot accept payment by Traveller’s Cheque.  All payments should be made in GBP (£).

When you book a course and arrange payment, you will receive a booking confirmation to confirm the course you have booked, your course dates and accommodation details.  We will also send you a copy of your invoice showing the full fees due. Course and accommodation are only fully confirmed once full payment has been made.

Transfers should be made to our bank account in GBP using the following information:

Bank name Danske Bank
Branch University Road
Full address 49-51 University Road, Belfast, BT71ND
IBAN GB77DABA95014950022241
SWIFT DABAGB2B

Please note that any bank charges (for example exchange fees) incurred are payable by the client and will be added to the total balance of the fees. However, we do not charge commission 0n credit card payments.

You can book your course and accommodation quickly and easily using our online booking system.

Bookings can be held with the payment of a deposit but are not fully confirmed until full payment is received. If you do not wish to book online, you can download an Enrolment Form and send it accompanied by the deposit of £100 which can be paid by credit card, bank transfer or cheque.

International House Belfast charges a placement fee of £50 for accommodation bookings in all cases.

Cheques should be made payable to International House Belfast Ltd., and sent to the school address.

Cancellations

Where a cancellation is received 10 days or more before the course is due to start, the deposit is refunded minus administration charges.  Where a full cancellation is received with less than 10 days’ notice, the deposit is non-refundable.

Refund policy

There are no refunds once the course commences, unless necessary due to exceptional circumstances ( personal illness which requires a student to stay home or return home, illness or death of a relative, etc..)

Refunds can only be made by the original method of payment. IH Belfast will deduct any charges incurred before processing the refund. Please note that the school must be notified of potential beginner level students so that we can check availability in advance of booking. In the case of unexpected beginner students, IH Belfast reserves the right to offer a course of equal or greater value (for example one-to-one classes) or to refund payment.

Holidays

Bank and public holiday dates when the school will be closed are listed on the school’s website and can also be checked directly with the school.  Please note that public and bank holidays are non-recuperable. Any holidays taken by a student during their course are at the student’s own discretion and are non-recuperable.
