General conditions

1. Minimum age

The minimum age for enrollment in general courses is 17 years old and 14 years old for the Summer Course for Young Students.

2. Responsibility

Escuela Internacional does not assume responsibility for acts outside of its control (i.e. natural disasters) nor the actions of the students outside of the study centers.

3. Course levels and schedule

On the first day of the course students take a placement exam to enter in the appropriate level for each student's proficiency and needs. At each E.I. Center there are at least 4 different levels. The majority of the courses are held in the morning, however in the summer/high season there are some courses held in the afternoon.

4. Extending your stay

Students who wish to extend the number of weeks they will attend courses need only to let the E.I. secretary know. All fees for the extended period must be paid before beginning classes in the new period.

5. Accommodations

Reservations are made per person on a weekly basis. You may reserve your room from the Sunday before you start classes until the Saturday after you complete the course. For your convenience it is possible to request additional days.

The price for accommodations in a host family includes laundry service (except in Cuernavaca), bed linens and the number of meals requested.

Students who will live in an apartment in Spain, can pick up the keys at the place and time indicated on the Registration Confirmation. The price of apartments is per person and includes the cost of water and electricity but not gas. Students living in an apartment must bring their own bed linens and towels.

Students are responsible for any broken or damaged objects due to poor usage.

6. Airport transfer service.

Those students who request airport transfer service will be met at the airport by a representative from the chosen center. This person will assist them in arriving to their accommodations. Those students who do not request transfer service may go directly to the address indicated on the Registration Confirmation. In Costa Rica, transfer service is included in the price of accommodations in a host family and in an apartment.

7. Medical Insurance and Visas

Since medical and accident insurance are not included in the cost of the program, we advise those students interested in purchasing medical insurance through E.I. to check the appropriate box on the enrollment form. Those students from countries that need a visa to enter Spain or Latin America should check the appropriate box on the enrollment form so that the school can send a Certificate of Enrollment once registration has been completed.

8. Cancellations and shortened programs

The Central Office of Escuela Internacional must be notified in writing of all cancellations. The enrollment fee is non-refundable.

Spain and Mexico: If E.I. receives notice of a cancellation before the course begins, the student will be refunded all pre-paid course and accommodation fees. The registration fee is non-refundable. If E.I. receives notice of a cancellation or a reduction of the program after the course has begun, the student will be refunded 70 % of the value of the course and accommodation fees not realized.

Costa Rica: Cancellations made seven days before the start of the program or after the program begins will not receive reimbursement of any kind.

9. Changes of center or accommodation

Once the student is enrolled, the student must notify the E.I. Central Office of any changes in writing. There will be an administration charge of 30,00 € for each change in center or accommodation. Once classes have begun, the type of course cannot be changed. Students may request a change of level from the Director of Studies, which will be admitted when it serves to improve the program for the student.

10. Late arrivals and absences

If you will arrive later than the beginning date of the course, it is best to communicate this to the Registration Center in order to reserve your place. If you arrive late for a course, or are absent during the course, no refund will be granted.

11. Misconduct

E.I. reserves the right to refuse admittance in the course and accommodations returning 70% of the course and accommodation fees not realized, to any student who exhibits poor behavior, does not attend classes, or regularly arrives late to classes.

12. Exceptional changes

E.I. reserves the right to change the course dates and prices without prior notice. In the case of cancellation of any course, the student will be reimbursed in full.

13. Acceptance of the General Conditions

Participation in an E.I. course implies knowledge of and acceptance by the student and/or his/her parent(s) or legal guardian(s) of all General Conditions included in the E.I. brochure and Website.
