2. Classes are organised in advance to ensure teacher availability and are based on student enrolments. Students dropping out of classes after commencement would make the class unviable and disadvantage those remaining for the entirety of the term. Furthermore we do not have the administrative capacity, nor are we able to cover the high cost associated with refunds.
3. As we are unsure when classes are scheduled in future terms, we cannot provide credit towards classes.
