  2. Course fee is charged in full, if you do not cancel the course, if you cancel it less than 7 days before the course is due to start or you do not show up.

Refund will be made according to our cancellation policy once you have sent us your IBAN account number. If you have not paid the course fee or cancelled your participation in a course, we will charge you according to our cancellation policy. Course fees are collectible.

Course fee paid by Culture and Sports vouchers cannot be returned. You can arrange for the course fee to be paid once it has been confirmed that the course will start. If you have paid a cancelled course with Culture and Sports Vouchers you can use the sum for another course.

In general, the language of instruction is Finnish. In several courses the teacher is also able to instruct in English or some other language. Please contact the head teacher to find out the main language of instruction.
