This website has been created and is operated by Look4Course Ltd, a British company with a registered address at 11 Old Rectory Close, Harpenden, Herts AL5 2UD.

Our service is based on information and the services provided by the course providers, host, users and the service providers in general.

4. Making a booking
The "Book Now" button on the Booking Page will take you through a very quick, user-friendly online application system where you enter your personal data and have to pay only a deposit on the booking total fees. Once a course provider has been chosen by you and a deposit has been paid, the service providers will confirm availability of the services you require, once the school confirm availability for those services, you will receive a confirmation email with the balance of fees to be paid directly to the service providers. The payment of the deposit does not mean that your place is confirmed, the confirmation of your place will be communicated to you within 48 hours after the payment of the deposit by email. You will be contacted by the service providers with an invoice for the remainder of the booking fees, and any other fees for services you have requested.
This invoice and the remainder of your booking fees must be paid in full in accordance with the terms set out by the course provider prior to course start date or the terms set out by the host. Your place on any course and/or accommodation is not fully confirmed until such time as these fees have been paid, and the service providers concerned has confirmed this payment. Failure to pay in full prior to arrival may result in loss of your place. We recommend to pay the fees in full at least two weeks prior the course start date.
Prices in our website may fluctuate due to currency conversions. For the pre-payment or deposit, we will apply the exchange rate of the day (per XE.com rate at the time of booking). Your booking will be done in the currency of the school. Your registration (booking) is a binding agreement for you to complete the course and pay the fees in full. If payment is not received in full the student will not be allowed to start the course. Letter of Acceptance will not be issued until full payment has been received. All bank or credit card charges must be paid by you. While we forward the details of your booking to the service providers selected, we cannot guarantee the course booking until all fees due are fully paid. Nevertheless we will do our best to accommodate you in the course of your choice.
Students required to be in possession of a visa to enter a country or territory should book the course and accommodation at least 8 weeks in advance. No flight ticket should be purchased until course provider confirms the student's place on a course. You are obliged to keep us and the service providers informed of any changes of address, your contact details and emergency contacts details.

The general cancellation and refund policy of each course provider is made available on our website at the course provider information pages, during the reservation procedure and in the confirmation email. Please note that certain rates or special offers are not eligible for cancellation or change. Please check the course and or accommodation details thoroughly for any such conditions prior to making your reservation.

We recommend you read the cancellation policy of the service providers carefully. Look4Course.com will not charge any additional cancellation fee. If you cancel more than 4 weeks before the start of the course most service providers may not charge a cancellation fee or will simply charge the inscription fee, which will have been paid as part of the course fees, as cancellation fee. You are strongly advised to take insurance in case you are unable to start or to complete your course for reasons outside your control.
(ii) Cancellation by the service providers
We make all reasonable efforts to provide the courses as set out in our website. Occasionally, the service providers have to make changes to and correct errors in brochure and other details both before and after bookings have been confirmed and cancel confirmed bookings. Whilst the service providers always endeavour to avoid changes and cancellations, they must reserve the right to do so.
Most changes are minor. If we have to make a significant change or cancel, we will tell you as soon as possible. If there is time to do so before departure, we will offer you the choice of the following options: (for significant changes) accepting the changed arrangements or purchasing an alternative course from us, of a similar standard to that originally booked if available (if the chosen alternative is less expensive than your original one, we will refund the difference but if it is more expensive, we will ask you to pay the difference) or cancelling or accepting the cancellation in which case you will receive a full and quick refund of all monies you have paid to us.
Please note the above options are not available where any change made is a minor one. No compensation will be payable and the above options will not be available if we cancel as a result of your failure to comply with any requirement of these booking conditions entitling us to cancel (such as paying on time).
If your reservation has been cancelled by the service providers, you will receive an email to confirm your cancellation. If you do not receive the cancellation email, please check your Spam/junk folder to see if the email is there. If you have not received a cancellation email in your inbox or Spam/junk folder, please contact the course provider directly.
Any amendment to the dates of stay of a Special Offer or Non Refundable reservation will be charged by the service providers and is non-refundable due to the special deal.

All such losses, additional expenses or claims will be borne by you unless otherwise agreed between you and the service provider.
(iii) Cancellation due to visa refusal:
If you have been refused visa you must inform us immediately, failure to inform us with less than 14 days before the course start date will result in refund refusal. In event of visa refusal into the country where you book your course, official documentation of the application refusal must be sent to the course provider before refund can be considered. No refund will be issued where original documents have not been received. You must send these documents by recorded post and scanned by email to the course provider. Where refund is to be issued due to visa refusal full course and accommodation fee will be refunded less bank and/or credit card charges.
Please note each school has their own visa refusal cancelation policy and some fee may be charged by the course provider in this event. You can find the visa refusal policy of the school in the school profile in our website.
