CANCELLATION POLICY FOR SHORT COURSES
The course fee for Evening, One Day and One Week courses will be refunded (less a €25 administration fee) if written cancellation is received no less than 28 days before the start of a course. No refunds will be made for places cancelled within 28 days of the start of a course and payments will not be transferred to other courses. We will relist your place for resale to other customers. If we are unable to sell your place in the time remaining, you will forfeit any course fees associated with your booking. You can transfer/sell your place to another person (16 years or older).
If a person that is booked on a course fails to attend for any reason, they are not entitled to a refund or a rebooking/deferral to another course, again you can transfer the place to another person (16 years or older). No refunds will be made for gift vouchers bought.
No refunds will be made if you fail to attend all or any part of a course.
CANCELLATION POLICY FOR CERTIFICATE COURSES
If a student wishes to cancel a place on the Three Month or One Month Certificate course, the school will make a full refund less 20% of the total course fee to cover administration costs, provided that cancellation in writing reaches Dublin Cookery School not less than 8 weeks prior to the start of the course. Should you wish to transfer to a course date in the future rather than cancel your booking outright, we will transfer your course deposit to that future date.
For cancellations within 8 weeks of the course start, the student remains liable for the deposit paid/full course fees. If the student leaves prior to completion of the course, no refund shall be given.
Withdrawal from any course due to illness, travel problems or any other reason, does not lead to any form of refund. Personal or travel insurance is recommended to cover you not being able to attend or complete a course. Places can be transferred to another person.
HYGIENE, HEALTH & SAFETY
In the interests of both hygiene and safety, you are advised to wear appropriate clothing, including low-heeled shoes with a non-slip sole.
Dublin Cookery School shall be under no liability whatsoever, for any loss, injury or damage to students or their property, whether in respect of any neglect, act or omission by the school, its agents or employees.
If a student is considered by Dublin Cookery School to be unsuitable for any reason, the student may be required to leave, either immediately or within a specified time. If the School considers that you have behaved in an unacceptable manner, the School will be entitled to exclude you from any course you are currently enrolled on or booked in the future. No refunds will be made in this instance for the course you are currently booked on to and no refunds will be made for any future courses you are booked on to unless we can resell those course places to another purchaser.
