ADOS Spanish School is not responsible for loss of personal items or any personal injury during a course.
2. Age and number of students
The minimum booking age for adult courses is 18 years old. Children must be accompanied and supervised by an adult.
The minimum number of participants in a course is 4. If no group is formed for the expected Spanish level, the student will be offered private classes. The number of sessions for those private classes will depend on the amount already paid by the student and considering their current prices.
3. Arriving, departure and postponement
Students should arrive on the Sunday before the course begins. Departure is normally on the Saturday after the course ends.
On the first day, at 9:00 am, the student will take a level test and then ADOS Spanish School will confirm the level and timetable. It is desirable that the written part is done in advance on the web site of the school: “Courses & prices” > “Test online”. Please note that classes can be in the morning or in the afternoon depending on the level and places available in each group.
The student may postpone the starting date if necessary, by notifying the school a minimum of 14 days before the beginning of the course. All fees will be transferred to a later starting date.
For courses of 12 weeks duration or more: The full price of the course along with the enrolment (€ 60) must be paid two weeks (14 days) before the first day of class.
For courses of less than 12 weeks duration: The full price of the course or its first monthly payment along with enrolment (€ 60) must be paid two weeks (14 days) before the first day of class.
For courses with a special offer (€ 3,500 annual course, special discounts, etc.) the total amount of the course will be paid 14 days before the start of the course, with no option for monthly payments or any other type of payment split.
If the student or group is already in Valencia, payment in full can be made on the first day of class. But in case of last-minute booking, we cannot always guarantee your choice of course and/or accommodation.

a) For students without a D-Type visa
- All cancellations must be notified in writing to ADOS Spanish School.
- For cancellations made up to a month before the course is due to start, ADOS Spanish School will refund all fees paid apart from the registration fee (60€).
- In case a cancellation is made two weeks (14 days) or less before the course is due to start, ADOS Spanish School will not return the cost of the course and/or accommodation. However, the student will always be able to use the purchased training hours in the future, within one calendar year.
- In the case of upfront payment courses (€ 3,500 per year or special discounts), if a student decides to leave any of these courses, they must notify the school in writing, explaining the reasons. From that moment on, the student will have the possibility of recovering the hours paid and not consumed, during an academic year counted from the moment of the written communication. In these cases there is no possibility of any refund.
- The school reserves the right to cancel courses when insufficient bookings are made and to change students to other courses. If such a change happens, a full refund of fees, excluding the enrolment and visa papers fees, will be made if requested instead.
b) For students with a D-type visa, which necessarily requires an official invitation from the school:
(None of the above conditions will aply). The only condition for cancelling the course will be the visa refusal and following the procedure below:
b.1: The student send the refusal to the school.
b.2: The School will contact the Embassy in order to help the student get it.
b.3: If after this the Embassy again refuses to issue the visa, the School will return 90% of the course cost after the official confirmation of the refusal, if the student has already paid the course, but the registration deposit + visa expenses will not be refunded.
If the student refuses to come to School after receiving a student visa, no refund will be made, and the School will also report the situation to the Embassy of Spain.
If the reasons for any of the denials were “when to substantiate the request, false documents or inaccurate allegations have been presented, or there is bad faith” (art. 39.9 b) 2 del R.D.), or other types of circumstances not inherent to our centre, there will be no refund.
c) COVID-19: In the event that face-to-face classes are affected in any way by COVID-19 (travel, quarantine or other similar), they will be replaced by online classes, there will be no refund.
8. Personal discipline
ADOS Spanish School students have to attend all timetabled classes regularly and to call or notify us in case of absence or late arrival.
They will behave with respect and consideration to the other students, the staff and take care of the equipment they use.
In the case of serious misconduct, the student may be requested to leave immediately, in which case no refund will be made. ADOS Spanish School will be the sole arbiter of what constitutes a serious misconduct. All students adjudged guilty of serious misconduct will be required to pay for any damage caused.
9. Holidays and bank holidays:
Except for Christmas holidays, courses that have been reserved in weeks when the school is closed due to a holiday, the sessions missed will be recovered before or after the holidays.
