Cancellation policy
The Center for European Studies incurs costs for each student we register. CES applies the following cancellation regulations:

  • If a student withdraws 8 weeks or more before the start of the programme, no costs will be charged with the exception of any non-refundable visa fees, where applicable.
  • If a student withdraws between 8 and 4 weeks before the start/arrival day of the programme, CES will charge 25% of the tuition fee per student who is withdrawing + non-refundable costs made for visa applications.
  • If a student withdraws between 4 weeks and the start/arrival day of the programme, CES will charge 50% of the tuition fee per student who is withdrawing + non-refundable costs made for visa applications.

Exceptions to the abovementioned cancellation regulations will be reviewed by CES on a case-by-case basis.
