4.4 ASL reserves the right to combine a course with another comparable course, to postpone it, to hold it online or hybrid or to cancel it due to insufficient number of participants or due to circumstances beyond its control.

4.5 If the course does not take place for reasons beyond the control of the language school, the student may make up the same course at a later date. The course fee will not be refunded unless it is impossible for the student to repeat the course at a later date.
