All listed prices are final prices containing all price components. Absence of the registered participant from the class does not exempt the participant from his/her obligation to pay.
The first class unit of the semester can be booked as a try-out class, if the student registers for the full class afterwards, the try-out class will be deducted from the semester fee. The rest of the payment is to be paid in full by the 2.class unit, or in two installments 50% by the 2.class unit, 50% by the 5.class unit.

SEMESTERCLASSES
The number of weekly classes is not a contingent. A replacement for missed classes cannot be requested. If you excuse yourself from the class unit at least 2 hours before the start of the class, we offer the possibility to make up for the missed class in other weekly classes with the same instructor by the end of the semester, after an agreement with the instructor and if the class size allows it. You can also make up a class in advance if you already know you’ll miss your regular class.
