Attendance and students’ holidays

Students are expected to attend lessons regularly and on time. Students are not entitled to refunds if they are late, absent, or leave before the course ends. Students attending courses of 36 or more weeks duration may take a holiday of four weeks without losing their course fee for the period providing at least four weeks’ notice is given.

Course Availability and Cancellation

Every attempt will be made to place you on the course of your choice. However, Language Link London cannot guarantee a particular course and timetable until you have taken an entry test and had an interview. In the event of insufficient applications for a course, the school reserves the right to offer an alternative course of equal value.

Each lesson or study hour consists of 50 minutes of study time.
