How to Register and Pay

How to Register

1. Decide which course(s) you want to do. Please check:

  • that the dates are correct. Please remember some of our courses have specific start dates.
  • that you are suitable for the course. Check age, level of English, working background and language objectives. To check your level of English, you can take our online English test.
  • that you understand the fees, including registration fees. Check the fees by clicking on Brochure and Prices page. 

Send your registration details to us in one of the two following ways:

Important information

  1. Please remember that we need full details of your accommodation needs.
  2. We will confirm the arrangements as soon as possible - usually the same day although accommodation normally takes a little longer to arrange.
  3. We understand that travel details may not be available at the time of booking, but if you need an airport transfer, please make sure that you let us have them in advance.
  4. When we confirm your course we will send you a pre-course questionnaire. Please make sure that you fill it in and return it to us as soon as possible.  This helps us to check that the course is right for you, and also helps us to prepare your course properly. 
  5. Please make sure that you give us telephone contact information in case we need to speak to you.  This might be because we want to discuss which course is most suitable for you, or because something has changed and we need to tell you about it.
  6. If you are staying with a school homestay and we are arranging an airport pick-up for you, we will tell your homestay host.  If you are travelling independently it is very important that you tell them when you will arrive or they may not be at home when you get there.
  7. Please make sure that full payment reaches us 30 days before the start of your course.

Terms and Conditions of Payment

Before you register and pay for your course, please make sure you read our terms and conditions.

In particular, please be aware of our rules, below, about cancelling or postponing your course.

Please note that it is your responsibility to arrange suitable insurance to avoid losing fees if you have to cancel or postpone.

Cancelling or postponing a course before you start it

If you want to cancel a course, you must do so in writing. You may cancel on the following conditions:

  • more than 15 working days’ (Monday–Friday) notice before the course begins: no penalty
  • Six working days to 15 working days’ notice before the course begins: 50% penalty
  • less than six working days’ notice before the course begins: 100% penalty.

Each minimum period is regarded as a separate course. (See paragraph one above).

If you want to postpone a course, you must do so in writing. You may postpone on the following conditions:

  • you must pay the full course fees by the original starting date of the course booked, and
  • you must take the postponed course within three months of the original starting date.

If you postpone a booking, we will give you a credit towards the postponed booking as follows:

  • Six working days’ notice or more before the course begins: 100% credit of course fees paid
  • less than six working days’ notice before the course begins: 50% credit of course fees paid.

If you cancel your booking because of a visa refusal, we will refund any fees that you have paid if you send us a copy of the visa refusal letter provided by the British Embassy/Consulate. You must do this at least five working days before your course starts. If you tell us later, we may charge you according to our normal cancellation terms. If you cancel less than five working days before your arrival date, and homestay has been arranged, you must pay for one week’s accommodation, and the accommodation placement fee, even if your cancellation is caused by a visa refusal. Please note that it is your responsibility to apply for your visa in good time.

If you have any questions about our terms and conditions we would be very happy to discuss them with you either by telephone (+44 207 605 4142) or by email at sales@londonschool.com
