Terms & conditions

Prospective students with gift vouchers will need to register as normal for classes on the Alliance française d’Oxford’s website after contacting us and upon presentation of the gift voucher. The gift voucher is valid within one year of purchase.

Gift vouchers are not redeemable for cash. Gift vouchers for private tuition may be redeemed for classes depending on availability but gift vouchers for group classes may not be redeemable for private tuition.

Some classes might be full at the time of registration. Students will be notified when space becomes available or the Alliance française d’Oxford might be able to open a class when enough registrations have been made.

Gift vouchers for private tuition will be arranged with our courses director and will depend on tutor availability and are valid only for 1-1 tuition.

Group classes take place online during Government-imposed restrictions to restrict of the spread of COVID-19.

Maximum class size is five students on site until the UK government measures on social distancing due to the limitation of the spread of COVID-19 are lifted. Exclusively online classes will have a different maximum number of people per class. A minimum of four students is required to constitute a class. The Alliance française d’Oxford reserves the right to change any on-site class to an online class if, in the reasonable opinion of the Alliance, this is necessary in order to (i) comply with UK government or local measures or guidelines aimed at limiting the spread of COVID-19; and/or (ii) protect the health, safety or wellbeing of any student, teacher, staff member or member of the public. Fees will not be reimbursed for any on-site class moved online.

In the event of cancellation on your part less than 7 days before the group course starts, fees are non-refundable.

Fees for classes are paid termly or yearly and may not be pro-rated due to student’s absence. The fees can be paid termly if the student is registered for the year at the beginning of the Autumn term. The 10% reduction in fees on group classes only for a yearly registration are valid only for the Alliance française d’Oxford’s academic year 2019-2020 and at the discretion of the management, and The discount is redeemable every term if the full discounted fees are paid termly upon receipt of the termly invoices. Charges equivalent to the discount plus a small administration fee will be incurred if you decide on an early withdrawal from the classes for whichever reason there might be. Payment is due 2 weeks before the date of the first class at the latest. Tuition books are not included in the courses. If the class you choose is full, or if we must cancel a class because of insufficient enrolment, we will contact you about registering for another course.

Filling the online registration form does not guarantee a place in the class chosen, since the class might be full. Your place will be reserved once the invoice you will receive offering you a space in the class has been payed.

In case of private tuition (one-to-one, two-to-one, three-to-one, tutorials, masterclasses, French in the workplace), the package is valid for 1 year from date of purchase, is transferable to a family member but is non-refundable. PLEASE NOTE a 48h-business-hours’ notice is required for cancellations or changes (including modifications to the time or date of the next tuition session) or the session will be charged in full.
