Terms And Conditions
The following terms and conditions apply to use of the Alliance Francaise Christchurch website; and services offered by the Alliance Francaise Christchurch (also referred to as "the Alliance").
PLEASE READ THE INFORMATION BELOW CAREFULLY
Conditions of enrolment
A current Alliance Française Christchurch student registration or Alliance Française Christchurch membership is required for enrolment on any course. Payment of the student registration fee gives you access to a wide variety of services for the duration of the calendar year in which it is bought. Payment of the Alliance Francaise membership fee entitles to you these benefits for a year from the date on which it is purchased. The student registration and Alliance membership are not refundable.
The Alliance Française reserves the right to divide, combine or cancel any class, should it be deemed necessary.
Payment and fees
- Fees are due before the start of the term. You will be charged an additional 10 per cent if you have not paid within the first 2 weeks of the term.
- If a course does not reach a minimum number of 5 students or is for some other unavoidable reason cancelled by the Alliance, the fee will be refunded in full.
- Each lesson must be arranged and paid for in advance. You and the teacher must agree upon a specific date and time via e-mail.

- The Alliance Française applies a strict no refund policy for any student who withdraws more than three weeks (i.e. after the first three classes) of the course.
- Cancellation of any lesson must occur more than 24 hours prior to the scheduled lesson time. Failure to notify Alliance Française Christchurch of a lesson cancelation prior to 24 hours before the scheduled lesson time will result in a full fee being charged for the lesson. All notification must be done by email and sent to both the Alliance Française Christchurch Administration (firstname.lastname@example.org) and the teacher.
- If you arrive more than 15 minutes after the scheduled start of the lesson it will be considered an untimely cancellation and no refund will be given.
