Course Dates, Payment and Refunds Policy
Please note that Ubiqum Code Academy reserves the right to alter course dates. Ubiqum Code Academy’s policy is to always commit to a starting date once 10 students have paid their deposits. If a deposit has been paid and the course date is to be altered, the student will be warned at least 10 days in advance of the course starting. The affected student in this case may request a full refund of their deposit should the revised start date not be suitable.
Once a student confirms they want to join Ubiqum, they have 30 days to make their deposit. For local students the deposit is 400€ and for non-eu nationals the deposit is 1.500€. However in ALL cases, the amount that is non-refundable is 400€ and allows any student to have a reserved spot for the course during the period of one year (you can choose your preferred start date).
There are only two exceptions to this rule.
- 1.- A student may request a refund of their deposit if they have an issue with their VISA that prevents them from studying. In this case, the student must provide written evidence of their VISA refusal.
- 2.- A student may request a refund of their deposit if the Ubiqum Code Academy course date is changed or cancelled from the date they booked. In no circumstance is Ubiqum Code Academy liable for any pre-booked accommodation or external factors to the Ubiqum Code Academy course itself. This should be noted by Ubiqum Code Academy students before they prepare travel and accommodation.
Please note that Ubiqum students should pay their first instalment of the course before the course begins.
If this payment is not received by Ubiqum Code Academy in its bank account before the commencement of the course, Ubiqum Code Academy may, at its option, re-allocate the place reserved for the student to a wait-listed student in which case the original student will no longer be able to attend the course and will not be entitled to be repaid their deposit.
If you require Visa support, Ubiqum Code Academy can assist you personally from the Barcelona office. Ubiqum Code Academy is affiliated with a local university which is certified by the Universidad Politécnica de Catalunya. In order to avail of this support, Ubiqum Code Academy requires a one-off non-refundable payment of 150€ for administrative costs. Ubiqum Code Academy is not liable for student visa rejections, but is here to assist students in the process.
Ubiqum Code Academy provides a list of local accommodation for students’ stay in Barcelona. Some locations have an Ubiqum Code Academy discount, but please note that Ubiqum Code Academy does not offer official accommodation as part of their services. Local on the ground support will be provided, but this is of an informal nature and we cannot guarantee to solve all students’ individual issues.
