Cancellation If you wish to withdraw from a course you must do so in writing at least five working days before its start date in order to qualify for a full refund. Any individual wishing to withdraw from a programme of study after its start date will not qualify for any refund. On production of a receipt any refund due will be will be returned using the method used for the initial payment.
Cancellation of courses by The Acorn Institute Under the rare circumstances of our being forced to cancel, all fees paid for The Acorn Institute will be refunded. Refunds will normally be paid directly to the student, unless alternative instructions are given to the school by a sponsor.
Insurance The Acorn Institute does not insure students against illness, accident, theft, or against any loss of personal effects whatsoever, at any time during their stay. Neither the school nor its representatives will accept responsibility for any accident that may occur to any student for the duration of a course of study, either during excursions or during any other activities, whether inside the premises or outside the school grounds. The Acorn Institute therefore recommends that students take out full personal insurance cover, including medical and any other foreseeable expenses.
Photography, Filming & Sound Recording During the course of your stay, Acorn Institute may arrange to record, photograph or shoot video footage for its promotional purposes only, both printed and online, without requiring further approval from you. Any student, or parent or legal guardian of a student under the age of 18 years, who does not wish to participate must state this on admission and the same student must state at the time of the recording, photographing or video shooting the wish not to participate.
