A refund is only accepted under exceptional circumstances. The payment of the course fee guarantees enrollment but does not guarantee a place at the preferred schedule. A copy of the certificate will have an additional cost of 10€. Assessment is done through direct observation in classes, homework and a final exam. The justification of absences is only valid upon presentation of an official document. No exceptional assessment period will be offered to the students. Classes are taught in Portuguese.
