Refund Policy
For cancellations before the beginning of a program, a refund will be issued less a 15% cancellation fee if all materials are returned and completely unused and the cancellation is made and materials returned before the date of the first class.

Shipping fees are not refundable. If a cancellation is made after a class begins, refunds are not available.

Certain classes like WSET Level 1 and some workshop fees are non-refundable as all materials are purchased from London or by other providers prior to time of registration.

Registration may be transferrable for the same candidate and course to another session date within 8 months,  provided exams have not been ordered . All transfers are subject to qualification and availability. If exams have been ordered then an exam re-order and rescheduling fee will apply. Fees are dependent on the specific class.
