Students may register for the Summer School Courses at any time before the course begins. However, classes are popular and spaces may fill up quickly, so be sure to submit your deposit and application as soon as possible in order to secure your place.

deposit of €400 is required to be paid after the application form has been submitted and accepted. The balance of fees will be due two months before the course begins.

Student Misbehaviour

If the student attending Summer School Camp is found to have breached any of the rules in the Student’s Agreement that they hereby consign to, it will be reported immediately to their parent/guardian and could lead to their immediate dismissal from all courses. In this situation, no fees are refundable, and it is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to pay for the alternative accommodation and travel arrangements or any other cost resulting from the removal of the student from the course.

Sports and Activities

By signing this agreement parents/guardians also agree to allow students off campus for all sports and activities planned by the staff. Parents/guardians understand that sometimes these activities carry inherent danger, for which the staff members are no responsible. It will also not be possible for a staff member to be supervising the students at all time.

Refunds & Cancellation

The parent/guardian who has signed the application forms must give notice via email or post two months prior the course that their child will not be attending Summer School at Study Academy Vienna if they wish to cancel. We also reserve the right to cancel a student’s place if the balance of fees has not been received by the payment date. In this situation no refund of the deposit will be made. If notice of cancellation is received before the payment date, all payment will be refunded except for an administration charge of 150 euros. If notice of cancellation is given after the payment date then no refund can be made.

Under-subscribed and altered classes

Study Academy Vienna hereby reserves the right to cancel classes in the Summer School Camp should they be under-subscribed. In this situation, students will be given the opportunity to choose another class, enrol for one on one tutoring or have a full refund. One on one tutoring will, however, be at extra cost. We also reserve the right to alter courses should there be any unforeseen circumstances outside of our control. In this circumstance the parent/guardian will be notified as soon as possible, and will be offered a full refund or an alternative course.

Medical Insurance and Injury

Students must have proof of medical coverage and insurance when arriving at the Summer School Camp in order to ensure your child is covered should any injury or illness occur. In the case of such an event, students will be fully cared for by their medical insurance, and may leave the course early should the illness or injury cause it. However, under these circumstances, no refunds will be available for the course. Students from Austria can use their E card whilst those from within the EU may use their European Health Insurance Card to obtain medical care. Students from outside the EU must have private medical and dental insurance.

Study Academy Vienna takes no responsibility for any injury or event that occurs off campus, should they have written permission to leave campus in their free time.

In the event that medical treatment needs to be administered, the parent/ guardian hereby gives permission for their child to be given treatment if recommended by a qualified medical practitioner.

Dietary Requirements and Medication

Study Academy Vienna is not responsible for any harm to the students, e.g. allergic reactions, if specific dietary requirements have not been specified in the medical form submitted with the application.

Any students taking medication during the Summer School course must provide evidence of their medical prescription before the course begins. This can be emailed to us at office@studyacademyvienna.com or sent via post to the address given in our website.

Damage to property and injury of others

Parents/Guardians of the students are responsible for any damage to property of injury to others caused by the student. Study Academy Vienna is also not responsible for any damage, loss or theft of property suffered from the student or a third party.

Off-Campus 

During the students’ lunch break and during any available free time allotted, students could be allowed to leave the campus, but given permission will be needed of the course director or a member of staff.

Failure to present a signed and written letter from the parent/guardian stating that they give permission for their child to leave campus unsupervised in their free time will mean the student will not be allowed off campus save for sports activities or trips planned by the staff and included in the course. Parents/Guardians agree to this by signing the agreement, and recognise that Study Academy Vienna are not responsible for the students when they choose to leave campus by themselves.

Photograph Permission

Photographs will be taken during the course of the students which may be used in the future for our website or in other media.

Should any of the terms and conditions or rules reasonably imposed by the staff failed to be met by the parent, guardian or student, the parent/ guardian hereby indemnifies the Study Academy Vienna staff and directors, agreeing that they are by no means at fault.
