Terms and Conditions

Terms and conditions

General terms and conditions of adult French courses:

  1. Membership is compulsory for all students of the Alliance Française de Toowoomba.
  2. Each term consists of eight (8) weeks.
  3. All fees are payable in advance. Access to classes can commence only after payment is confirmed.
  4. Pro-rata payment is not available, unless at the discretion of the Alliance Française de Toowoomba management committee.
  5. The Alliance Française de Toowoomba reserves the right to cancel courses if minimum enrolments are not received. A minimum enrolment of five (5) students per course is required.
  6. If a course is cancelled by the Alliance Française de Toowoomba, students will be offered a full refund.
  7. Classes are subject to variation due to enrolment numbers and days may be changed at the discretion of the Alliance Française de Toowoomba.
  8. If a class is cancelled by the Alliance Française de Toowoomba due to last minute teacher unavailability, students will be notified as soon as possible.  Arrangements for rescheduling the class will be made in consultation between teacher and students.
  9. The Alliance Française de Toowoomba complies with the Queensland Government COVID-19 mandate. This includes adherence to strict guidelines in relation to vaccination status and QR check-in requirements for all classes.
  10. To ensure the health and safety of its members, the Alliance Française de Toowoomba reserves the right to change a face-to-face class to an online class in order to comply with the Queensland Government COVID-19 restrictions and social distancing rules.
  11. Except in circumstances in which the Alliance Française de Toowoomba Committee must make the decision to cancel a class, no refunds will be provided to students who miss classes or decide to discontinue once payment has been received. Classes are organised in advance to ensure teacher availability and are based on student enrolment numbers. 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 costs associated with refunds. As we are unsure when classes are scheduled in future terms, we cannot provide credit towards classes.
  12. To ensure the best quality in teaching the Alliance Française de Toowoomba reserves the right to redirect a student to another class level if the student's level does not match the other members of the class.
