Terms and conditions for language open courses at Sussex

We reserve the right to cancel courses if minimum enrolment numbers are not reached. In this case, a full refund of fees will be paid or a suitable alternative found. We reserve the right to refuse entry to any of our courses. Unfortunately once a course has started we are unable to refund payments, as otherwise courses would not have sufficient numbers to run. In exceptional circumstances, we may be able to offer a ‘credit note’ (to be used for a future open course) or consider a refund if the request is made within the first 3 weeks of the course. In the case of a refund an administration fee of £50 would be deducted.

A place cannot be reserved on a course until payment is received. Completing the online enrolment form does not guarantee a place on your chosen course. All enrolments will be processed in the order they are received. You will be contacted with confirmation of your enrolment application. Reduced fees are available for those on full state benefits, senior citizens on state retirement pensions only, full-time and part-time students, employees and alumni of the University of Sussex.

All our language short courses are available to everyone who is aged 18 or over.
