How to pay
The amount may be paid in the following ways:
• Bank transfer
Unicredit - Orbetello
ABI 02008 - CAB 72322
(Bank charges are to be met by the sender; from non E.U countries the bank takes about € 13,00)

All group classes run Monday through Friday from 9.15 to 13.15 except during official Italian holidays. Students must present themselves at school on their first day at 09.00 in order to take a level test.
One class hour equals 55 minutes. In the event that after the entrance test level there are only one or two students for a particular level, the 4 hour standard Italian course will be converted into 2 hours of Individual tuition with the possibility to attend for the other two hours the class of the more similar level.
In the event that there are only 3 students for a particular level, the number of hours for the class will be reduced by 1 hour per day (for example: 3 hours instead of 4 for the Standard class) given the more intense nature of a small class size.
In case of complaints, students can address our administrative office to talk to the Director of Studies.
Finding accommodation is a free service for all students regularly enrolled.
Accommodation is at students' disposal from the Sunday before the beginning of the course until the Saturday morning following the end of the course. The arrival time must be communicated to the school or to the owner at least 4 days before. If you fail to inform the landlords, we cannot guarantee there will be anyone at home to welcome you.
Every accommodation available through the school has been carefully selected. If the student decides not to attend classes, or to shorten the stay, he/she is not entitled to any refund.
Adult students who choose to stay in apartments are responsible for the cleaning and maintenance of them. A deposit of € 100,00 must be left, which will be refunded the morning of departure. The deposit or a part of it, can be withheld for any of the following reasons: the lodgings haven't been cleaned, damage to the apartment, its furnishings or objects.
In shared apartments sheets are provided but towels are not; host families provide sheets and towels. Guests are not allowed without the school's permission. Students requesting that their accommodation be changed must offer serious and justifiable reasons. In this case the school, after having evaluated the request, provide alternative accommodation.
In order to claim back full repayment, the student is required to send a written cancellation to the school at least 20 days before the beginning of the Italian course by post or by e-mail. Beyond this date no refund will be made. However, payments can be used as vouchers for other Italian courses that the student may attend within one year after the annulment. The Language school reserves the right to establish the amount and to deduct the costs of remittance of payment and repayment of the amount.
Students coming from countries that require a visa to study abroad need to contact the Italian Embassy or Consulate in their home country beforehand to complete the formalities. A certificate of enrolment is one of the requirements for obtaining a visa. In order to receive a certificate of enrolment the student must pay the full tuition fees.
Students are not insured against illness, accidents, theft or loss of personal belongings, either by the school or by the owners of their accommodation.
Citizens from EU countries need to apply for the European health insurance card at the local health authority office of their home country before departing for Italy in order to be entitled with medical assistance at the local rate by the Italian National Health Service.
Students from non-EU countries should take out a private health insurance for the entire duration of their stay in Italy. We advice our students to enquire about it at their Italian embassies.
