Can I receive a refund on my intensive course?

We understand that plans change and you may need to alter your study schedule.

Coto proccesses refunds based on when you withdraw from the class.
In some cases – we can offer a full refund. In other cases we offer a partial refund.

Please note that changing when you study with us is regarded as a cancellation.

So for example – if you were going to start intensive course in June, but then you decided to start in September – this would be counted as a cancellation.

If you are doing this before the required cancellation deadline – there is no penalty and you can shift your start date.

If you are leaving the country – we also offer the option to transfer your existing lesson credits / package to online course credits for our Online Courses

Below we have included our terms and conditions for our refund policies which can also be found in our terms and conditions at the bottom of the intensive application – as well as in full at our support base. (COMING SOON)

Please read the terms below to find out if you qualify for a refund.
