Refunds

  

All sales are FINAL.

Unless you purchase cancellation insurance, which covers you up to the day prior to the beginning of a course, we are unable to offer any refunds should a student decide to cancel their enrollment or is unable to attend their course.

In exceptional circumstances, students who are unable to attend a course may receive a credit on their account to use toward another course if Antique Vines is able to resell a student’s original space to another student. This transfer/credit is solely at the discretion of the Education Coordinator and the student will be charged 25% of the course tuition to process the transfer.

No transfer/credit will be offered if the following circumstances apply:

- a course booking is canceled within 6 weeks of the course date;

- for any course already underway;

- cancellations of a confirmed WSET Class within 45 days before the start of the course.

- students are unable to attend a course due to changes in personal circumstances;

- students are unable to attend a course due to travel problems caused by unfavorable weather or cancellations by travel operators;

For all transfer requests, students must both fill out a transfer form to be approved by Antique Vines and pay 25% of the course tuition as the transfer fee

Antique Vines does not compensate for travel or accommodation expenses should a course be canceled or rescheduled for an alternative date.

COURSE CANCELLATIONS

  

Antique Vines reserves the right to cancel or change a course date. In these very rare circumstances, Antique Vines will normally arrange an alternative date and offer students either a transfer to this new date or, if this date is not convenient an alternative course.


Students must fill out a course cancellation form to be approved by the Antique Vines.

Antique Vines strongly advises that students arrange insurance to cover unforeseen events such as illness, unfavorable weather, or cancellation of a course for which travel and accommodation costs have been incurred.

Enrolling students are advised to purchase Antique Vines’s cancellation insurance (which costs 25% of the course fee), available by e-mail, which covers the cancellation of courses by either students or Antique Vines prior to the course start. The holders of this insurance, in the event of a course cancellation, is entitled to a full refund of their course tuition. All course cancellation insurance costs are non-refundable. This policy does not cover any travel or accommodation expenses that have been incurred by the student; however, Antique Vines strongly advises that students arrange for separate insurance to cover such expenses.

Non-US residents are advised to contact their local insurance broker or issuer to apply for coverage with regards to the recommended cover options above.

Antique Vines will offer students a transfer to another course in exceptional circumstances, and if the students confirmed enrollment can be resold to another student. A fee equal to 25% of the course tuition will be charged.
