Important information about your accommodation booking

  • If your preferred choice of accommodation is not available, we will contact you and provide alternatives. If we can provide you with an accommodation placement, details will be included in your course booking confirmation and payment will be due at the same time as your course fee.

  • Accommodation bookings will begin the Saturday prior to the course start date, and finish the Saturday following the course end date. We are unable to offer alternative check in / checkout dates unfortunately.
  • If students choose to arrive to their accommodation later or leave earlier, they will not be entitled to a compensation and we are unable to alter the accommodation booking.

 

Thinking of booking your accommodation privately?

If you choose to arrange your own accommodation privately, we strongly advise that you carefully research your options and only book accommodation through known and reputable providers. We also recommend that you carefully review the provider’s cancellation policy before booking. Please do not arrange any private accommodation until you receive a final booking confirmation following the application deadline for your course.
