ARRIVAL AND DEPARTURE
On your first day you will take a level test at 8:30 and we will then confirm level and timetable. Classes can be in the morning or in the afternoon depending on the level and places available in each group.
Students who have reserved accommodation should arrive on the Sunday before the course begins. Departure is normally on the Saturday after the course ends. Extra nights might be posible at extra cost.
On arrival students have to pick up their Welcome Folder which includes information about the school, the courses, the accommodation chosen and the city, as well as the accommodation keys if applicable.
Transfers can be arranged by the school at extra charge.
No compensation will be granted for any lesson lost due to the placement test or guided visit on the first day.
Students are not insured by Españolé International House Valencia against illness, accident, theft, damage or loss of personal ítems and the school cannot assume responsibility in case of such occurrences.
You should check if your country has health insurance arrangements with Spain. If this is the case, you should obtain all forms and documentation before leaving your own country. (European Community nationals are insured through the state insurance fund against accident and illness. Non-European Community nationals should have an international health insurance policy that is valid for Spain).
Health insurance is essential for all students, full private insurance is always recommended (travel, cancellation, property loss etc.). Make sure that your medical insurance covers all possible emergencies.
MEDICAL INSURANCE: Españolé offers the possibility of arranging a medical insurance for the students (see price list).
All cancellations must be notified in writing to Españolé International House Valencia.

For cancellations made between a month and a week before the course is due to start, the school will refund all fees paid minus a 25% of the total invoice and the non-refundable deposit (200 €) which will be kept as cancellation fee.
In case a cancellation is made at short notice (a week or less before the course is due to start) the school will return all paid fees minus a 40% of the total invoice and the non returnable deposit (200 €) which will be kept as cancellation fee.
No refund will be made once the course and/or accommodation period has started.
The school reserves the right to cancel courses when insufficient bookings are made and to change students to other courses. If such a change is proposed, a full refund of fees, including the deposit, will be made if requested instead.
