  • Once payment has been made, changes or cancellations will only be accepted in exceptional situations set out in these regulations. (See below REFUND POLICY section).
  • Payment can be made only by credit or debit card.

B. REFUND POLICY

BEFORE THE COURSE STARTS:

Idiomes UPF will only refund the full fee for the course (except for the UPF subsidized courses: Catalan, Catalan Landing Program, Spanish and Campus Plurilingüe) and only in the following situations:

  • Cancellation of a course due to enrollment not reaching the minimum required by the administration.
  • Student’s withdrawal from the course before the start date.

ONCE THE COURSE HAS STARTED

Once the course has started, a student can cancell the registration only during the first week of class of each term and only the fee for annual foreign languages courses (English, German, Arabics, French, Italian, Russian, Japanese, Chinese) will be refunded (only the fee for the terms not taken will be refunded), providing this is justified by academic reasons, such as the following:

  • Change in UPF’s degree timetable: a change in the student’s original timetable. In this case, the student will be asked to present writte proof fom the degree administration confirming there had been a significant change from when the student enrolled.
  • Internship: student’s undertaking of an internship period with a timetable incompatible with the course attendance. Written proof from the company where the internship is taking place and the schedule will be needed.

In case the cancellation is due to other academic reasons that are not listed above, the student will have to justify the reason in writing and make the request via the form. The corresponding documentation (form and further documents justifying the cancellation of the course registration) will be sent to [email protected].

Once the necessary information processed, if applicable, Idiomes UPF will proceed to refund the amount using the same credit or debit card used by the student when making the registration, provided that Idiomes UPF is unable to offer a suitable alternative.

Under no circumstances are refunds made for level tests or certifying tests.
