It must be demonstrated in writing that the Spanish Embassy has denied the visa. The cancellation of the course after obtaining the visa is only possible when the participant demonstrates through the proper documents from the Spanish embassy that has denied entrance to Spain. If the student has already entered Spain, the cancellation of the course is not possible.


INSURANCE
• Desilena School Insurance only covers accidents or injures suffered by students inside the school premises. This insurance does not cover students in case of illness, theft, damage or loss of personal belongings. In addition, Desilena S.L. disclaim liability in respect of the foregoing circumstances. We recommend you to take out full travel insurance that offers coverage in case of medical, money or baggage problems. We recommend that students who are EU citizens, bring the E-111 form or European Health Card to obtain free medical treatment in Spain if they have any medical problem during their stay.

GENERAL
• Registration fee: € 25. Includes: material needed for classes (notebook, pen and photocopies), one or two extracurricular activities per week, course certificate and Internet access.

•  Book: € 18. Only for intensive and progressive courses. If you prefer to take the book on loan, the school has this service available for you. For this, it is necessary to leave a deposit of 20 € in cash that will be returned on the last day of the course if you return the book in the same condition.

• Travel costs and weekend activities are not included in the price.

• A level test is required before the course. We recommend doing it the same day of registration so we will know in advance the student´s level and which class would be best suited to them.

• If the intensive course does not reach the minimum number of three students, the course will be taught, but the number of lessons will be decreased. Thus, for the formation of the group a minimum number of three students is necessary and four lessons will be taught daily. If there were only two students, the number of lessons would be 75% and if there were only one student at this level, the number of lessons would be 50%.

• The maximum number of students per class is eight.

• Classes lost in groups will not be recovered.

• Lesson length is 45 minutes.

• To book the individual lessons for two people it is necessary that both students are of the same level. If they are not of the same level, it is not possible to have a class together.

• If for any reason the student cannot come to the individual lessons, it is necessary to call the school 24 hours in advance in order to be able to recover these lessons. If you do not notify us in advance, the lessons will be considered given.

• If for reasons of rain or wind alert the school closes, there will be no class and missed lessons will not be recovered.

• The school reserves the right to change schedules if it is necessary for organizational reasons.

• To obtain the certificate of attendance it is necessary to attend 90% of lessons.

• We give four levels of Spanish as a Foreign Language established by the European Reference Framework. These levels are: A1, A2, B1 and B2.

• If the student does not show up on the scheduled start date of the course, the total amount paid by the student will be lost. In addition, the student will have no right to any refund if he leaves the course once it has started. In case of absence or sickness of the student, the student will not be entitled to any refund.

• € 50 will be charged for management fees for every course change requested by the student.

• Students from other countries outside the European Union often need a visa to be in Spain, we recommend they inquire at the closest Spanish embassy or consulate. If your visa is denied, we will give you back the quantity paid less a management fee of € 150. It must be demonstrated in writing that the Embassy has denied the visa otherwise there will be no refund.

• Desilena reserves the right to reject a request form from any student and to expel him/her for misbehaviour, irregular attendance or unsatisfactory work (serious cases), without the right to refund of the amount paid.

• Extracurricular activities organized by the school are an additional service. Desilena acts as an intermediary between the student and the provider. The school will be in contact with the provider, but it is not responsible for the activity development. In the event of an accident during the activity, the responsibility falls to the student's travel insurance or the company that carries out this activity.

• Desilena often takes photos and videos of daily life at school. If you do not want your photos to be published on social networks or the school's website, you must notify them on your request form.
