Placement Tests


In order to ensure that the students are placed in the proper level, a free placement test will be offered to all new students who have some knowledge of French language and to students returning to the Alliance Française de Jersey (AFJ), who have not participated in a course in six months or more.



Waiting List


If AFJ plans to open a new class, you can request to be placed on the waiting list. You will be contacted as soon as the number of students in sufficient for the additional class to be created.



Payment

Students are requested to pay the full tuition on the first day of the session or at least two weeks after the class started. Passed this period, 10% surcharge will be levied.

 The cost of course material and books is separate from the tuition fee.



Method of Payment


Payments may be made by personal cheque, cash or bank transfer.



Cancellations


AFJ reserves the right to cancel any course or reduce the number of instructional hours, should there be fewer than four students registered for the course. 

In the event that a course is cancelled, AFJ will offer students the option of transferring to another course, or obtaining a full refund.



Refunds

Tuition fees (for collective, private or corporate courses) are non-refundable unless a student provides AFJ with written notice of his or her withdrawal at least three business days prior to the start of the applicable session. 

An administration fee of £30 will automatically be deducted from the refund. All refunds are made by cheque. Please allow three weeks for processing.


Make-up Classes


For no additional fee, make-up private classes are available for registered students who miss classes. 

Students will be permitted to substitute up to two missed classes during a session. 

In any case, make-up classes to substitute missed classes during a session cannot be arranged on the following session.



Private Tuition


A 5-hour contract should be taken within three months. 

All cancellations require 24-hour notice. With at least 24-hour notice, the lesson can be rescheduled. With less than 24-hour notice, the lesson is charged for as stated and cannot be rescheduled. Replacement classes can be scheduled only within the duration of the contract, provided that the tutor is available. Any other arrangement is at the sole discretion of the Alliance Française; in any case, a maximum of 1 month from the date of the original final class of the contract will apply.

Special Discounts

Introduce a friend, colleague or family member to the AFJ as a new student: 10% discount on your next course. This discount can only be claimed by the existing student/member and is only valid when both persons register at the same time, for the same session, and in person.
