When you book a course and arrange payment, you will receive a booking confirmation to confirm the course you have booked, your course dates and accommodation details. We will also send you a copy of your invoice showing the full fees due.
Transfers should be made to our bank account in GBP using the following information:
49-51 University Road, Belfast, BT71ND
Please note that any bank charges (for example exchange fees) incurred are payable by the client and will be added to the total balance of the fees. However, we do not charge commission on credit card payments.
You can book your course and accommodation quickly and easily using our online booking system.
Bookings are confirmed upon payment of the deposit. Any remaining amount should be paid on the first day at the school, by cash or card. If you do not wish to book online, you can download an Enrolment Form and send it accompanied by the deposit of £100 which can be paid by credit card, bank transfer or cheque.
International House Belfast charges a placement fee of £50 for accommodation bookings in all cases.
If booking homestay accommodation, full payment is made to International House Belfast and we will pay hosts weekly. Students should not make payments directly to hosts.
Cheques should be made payable to International House Belfast Ltd., and sent to the school address.
If a course is postponed, (for example, if there is a delay with the visa application) you must let us know at least two weeks before you are due to arrive, otherwise you will lose your deposit and will have to pay another deposit before we can confirm a new starting date.
If a student cancels a one-to-one lesson, it must be 24 hours or more in advance of the lesson. If less than 24 hours’ notice is given, the lesson will be lost and there may be no refund.
Refunds can only be made by the original method of payment. IH Belfast will deduct any charges incurred before processing the refund. Please note that the school must be notified of potential beginner level students so that we can check availability in advance of booking. In the case of unexpected beginner students, IH Belfast reserves the right to offer a course of equal or greater value (for example one-to-one classes) or to refund payment and cancel the course.
If a visa application is rejected and we receive written evidence at least 14 days prior to arrival, we will refund the fees received in full, less an administrative fee of £100. Where we receive this evidence, the refund will be paid to you by the same method the payment was made within four weeks. If written evidence of a refusal is received less than 14 days prior to arrival then the refund will be paid less the administrative fee and the following non-refundable payments: £100.
