Tuition fees can be settled in installments as follows :

  • Payment will be settled through five direct withdrawals on your bank account (on the 15th of each month, from October to February).

Excerpt from our Study Regulations (clause 16) :

"Tuition fees are set each year by the Board of Directors and due by the stated dates.

If the applicant wishes to withdraw, they must notify the School by registered letter with proof of sending within 7 days following enrolment.
The withdrawal period starts with the sending of the enrolment documents by the School (date of first presentation of the registered letter with proof of sending). By default, the postmark will prevail as a starting point for the application of the withdrawal period.

In the case of a withdrawal after the deadline, the School shall retain the first tuition fee instalment as damages.

In case of withdrawal during the year due to force majeure (e.g. serious illness), the Board of Directors shall decide whether tuition fees are due. Until a ruling is made by the Board of Directors, tuition fees are due in full. In case of expulsion or withdrawal for personal reasons, tuition fees are due in full."
