How to pay

Upon an offer of admission, you will receive a payment link with further instructions for paying by credit card.


It may be difficult to replace a student who withdraws from the program as those on the waiting list are likely to have made other plans. Therefore, refunds can be made only in extreme cases, such as a family emergency. The tuition deposit is non-refundable.
