Under 18 year olds may be required to pay a guardian fee, provide custodianship documents, live in LSI-approved accommodation, book LSI’s airport transfer service and purchase insurance.

Students must report on their enrolment form any mental or physical illness, allergy, disability or condition and details of any associated medicines that may interfere with their ability to successfully complete their programme, that may impact the health and well-being of any other student, host or staff member, that may require monitoring, treatment or emergency intervention of any kind during the student’s anticipated period of enrolment, or that may require special accommodations. LSI reserves the right to reject an applicant or terminate a student’s enrolment in the programme if the student’s continued participation represents a risk to their health and safety or to the health and safety of other students or staff, or if, notwithstanding reasonable accommodations, in the opinion of LSI, the student’s physical or mental condition makes the student unable or unlikely to successfully complete their programme. Any refunds in such circumstances will be made at the discretion of LSI.
Any additional services (transfers, travel, laundry, telephone costs, excursions, medical costs, special diet, exam fees, change of accommodation and enrolment amendments) are not included in any fees unless specifically stated on a valid invoice.
At LSI’s discretion, students may be required to book single room accommodation instead of twin room accommodation.
Travel and medical insurance is strongly recommended at all LSI schools for the duration of your stay, regardless of your course length or course/visa type. For some programme or visa types, insurance is compulsory (please check with the school for further details). It is your responsibility to ensure that you have the appropriate cover before departure and for the duration of your stay. Students may be required to show proof of medical insurance at the school upon arrival and may not be allowed to commence a course until satisfactory medical insurance has been obtained. Travel and medical insurance can be purchased from a third party through LSI when booking. Details of what this covers are available from your LSI representative. You are responsible for the belongings which you bring with you to LSI schools or accommodation and for taking out insurance for your own possessions.
Australia: The Australian government requires all students on Student Visas to join the Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) scheme, a health insurance plan for overseas students in Australia. Payment of AU$41/month for compulsory OSHC for the duration of the student’s visa must be made before a visa can be issued.
New Zealand: Most international students are not entitled to publicly funded health services while in New Zealand. If you receive medical treatment during your visit, you may be liable for the full costs of that treatment. Full details on entitlements to publicly funded health services are available through the Ministry of Health and can be viewed on their website at www.moh.govt.nz. In addition, The Accident Compensation Corporation provides accident insurance for all New Zealand citizens, residents and temporary visitors to New Zealand, but you may still be liable for all other medical and related costs. Further information can be viewed on the ACC website at www.acc.co.nz.
In the event of a course postponement, you may be re-booked at the rates currently in effect at the time of re-booking.
Special Offers must be booked and paid for prior to the stated expiration date. The relevant special offer code must be provided at the time of booking. Promotion prices apply to new enrolments only. Existing enrolments cannot be cancelled and rebooked at the promotion price. Only one special offer is valid per enrolment. Special offers cannot be combined. All special offers are subject to availability and are subject to change.
Students' arrangements with LSI are governed by the law of the country where the particular school attended is located.
LSI reserves the right to change course dates, course curricula, course schedules, tutors, locations and programmes at any time at its discretion. However, in cases where the course is rescheduled prior to the start of the first course and the new date is unacceptable to the student, all fees will be refunded.
Depending on the school, accommodation is booked from either Saturday or Sunday before the course start date until the Saturday or Sunday after the course end date. Please check with the individual school for details. A partial week may be counted as 1 week’s accommodation. Students arriving between 22:30 – 6:00 may be asked to book alternative accommodation in a hotel on their first night due to late/early arrival at accommodation, or be charged an extra night of accommodation. Certain residences may also have set arrival times. Please check with the school for further details.
A refundable deposit may be charged on arrival to students taking residential accommodation. The deposit is returned unless there is damage, loss or extra cleaning to be paid for on the student’s departure. In some cases the deposit may be non-refundable if the booking is cancelled. Please refer to our various accommodation brochures for further details.
If you begin your enrolment late or are absent during your course, no refund will be made for the time missed. Periods of absence cannot be made up with a free extension of the course. Vacation dates are pre-built into the Academic Year and students cannot make changes to these dates. Breaks taken at other times will be marked as periods of absence. For other courses, granting of any Session Breaks after the course has started will be at the discretion of individual schools, according to visa regulations, and may incur a change fee (except in the USA) or be marked as a period of absence.
Classes are normally not held and most school facilities are closed on public holidays. All published course start dates fall on a Monday. If the Monday is a public holiday, the start date will fall on a Tuesday. Compensation will not be made for classes not offered on public holidays.
No refunds or substitutions will be made for meals or classes missed due to exams, excursions, internships, first day orientation or other obligations that fall outside the normal schedule.
If, after the placement test taken on arrival at the school, a student is found to be at a level which is not appropriate for their booked course, the school reserves the right to place the student in an appropriate level class, or LSI centre, which may have fewer lessons and a different curriculum. Students who do not have the ability to follow any course on offer may be required to terminate their studies with LSI. We also reserve the right to cancel courses at short notice due to insufficient demand.
All books and learning materials will be made available to students during their course.
In New Zealand, Australia, Canada, France & Switzerland a materials fee is charged. New Zealand: NZ$20 p/wk (max 20 weeks) & NZ$180 (Cambridge courses), Australia: AU$15 p/wk (max 20 weeks), Canada: CA$70 (Cambridge courses), France: €10 p/wk (max 20 weeks) & Switzerland: CHF14 p/wk (max 20 weeks).
All English lessons are 50 minutes in duration unless otherwise stated. Courses run from Monday to Friday and lessons are scheduled in the morning or the afternoon. LSI cannot guarantee a specific timetable.
A minimum of 2 weeks’ notice is required for any change (2 weeks' notice in USA). If you request a change of school location, course dates, accommodation or programme type after your course has started, you will be charged a change fee of UK: £60, Canada: CAD$100, New Zealand; NZ$100, Australia: AU$100, France: €100, Switzerland: CHF100, Malta: €100, which is payable at the time the request is made. LSI is not obliged to fulfil any change request. If changing to a location where fees are lower, the difference in fees will not be refunded. If changing to a more expensive location or programme, the difference in fees will be charged. You will not be charged a change fee if you extend your course.
All changes are subject to LSI’s discretion and require approval of the Programme Director. It is the responsibility of the student to pay for any course or accommodation extensions. Any change of tuition resulting in a reduction in lessons will be treated as a termination of the existing booking and rebooking (except in the USA), and will thus be subject to the standard terms & conditions governing terminations (see ‘Termination Policy’). In addition, certain visa types may disallow changes to course type and length. Please ask the school for more information at the time of booking.
Any student who commits a criminal offence, violates the LSI Code of Conduct or school policy, has a poor attendance record (based on the school’s attendance policy, whether or not such attendance is in breach of any visa attendance requirements), is absent for 10 consecutive days without notification (USA), or fails to pay an amount he or she is directly or indirectly liable to pay LSI, may be expelled or suspended. No refund will be given and the immigration authorities will be informed.
The liability of LSI, its group companies, their directors, officers, employees, affiliates, agents and partners with respect to losses arising from negligence (except where such liability cannot be excluded as a matter of law), breach of contract or otherwise, will be limited in all circumstances to the full amount paid to LSI or the relevant LSI group company by the relevant student for the particular programme. Such companies and persons will in no circumstances have any liability for indirect or consequential losses or damages.
LSI will not be liable in cases where LSI is unable to fulfil any services to which they are contractually bound because of fire, natural disaster, act of government, failure of suppliers or subcontractors, labour disputes or other reasons which are beyond LSI’s control.

At all LSI schools full attendance is expected. Student visa holders are required to provide LSI with a current residential address and telephone number at all times, maintain satisfactory academic progress and maintain satisfactory attendance, (subject to the school’s own attendance policy). Students who fail to show up for their enrolment or do not maintain satisfactory attendance will be reported to the Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC) in Australia, The Border Agency in the UK, Department of Homeland Security (DHS) in the USA, Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) in Canada, or to New Zealand Immigration Services. In the UK, for students on Tier 4 visas, if 10 contact days are missed consecutively the student will be reported to the UK Border Agency.
Information collected by LSI which personally identifies a student and information regarding a student’s course progress may be shared with the Australian State and Federal or British government, Department of Homeland Security, state and accrediting agencies (USA), designated authorities, the Tuition Protection Service (Australia), students’ parents, LSI staff and representatives. This information may include personal and contact details, course enrolment details and changes, and circumstances of any suspected breach by the student of any visa condition.
LSI has the right to change prices due to tax increases, governmental actions or other events beyond
LSI’s control. Prices are valid for courses starting in 2016. New Zealand: All fees, except homestay fees, are subject to a 15% government tax (GST). Should this be increased, our fees will increase accordingly.
Tuition fees include lessons, orientation meeting, use of computer room and internet in school, placement and progress testing, E-LSI online learning system, and a LSI certificate on completion of the course. LSI reserves the right to withhold the granting of a certificate attained by a student if tuition fees or any other fees remain outstanding, or other conditions are not met.
LSI or its representatives may arrange to photograph or shoot video footage of students or use their written feedback for promotional purposes, both printed and online. Any student who does not wish to participate should advise us at the time of booking and state at the time of the photographing or video shooting the wish not to participate. By accepting these terms and conditions the student (and their parent/guardian if under 18) gives consent to the use of these photographs or video footage without further consent or notification.
Online classes may be recording for training and quality assurance purposes. Changes to or cancellations of on-line lessons must give at least 36 hours notice. Cancellations made after this time will result in a lost class.
Unless otherwise stated, enrolment fees are non-refundable. All other service charges having already been incurred by LSI, including but not limited to, courier fee, accommodation placement fee/deposit and medical insurance, will not be refunded (up to a maximum charge of US$250 for LSI schools in California and US$500 in other LSI USA schools).
On written notification of a visa rejection and receipt of relevant supporting documentation, 100% of fees will be refunded less enrolment fee, accommodation placement and all other (utilised) service charges. In all cases where a visa or visa support documentation has been issued, the relevant immigration authorities will be informed.
