The Small Print

In addition to tuition fees, all students will need:

  •  Accommodation and food for the immersion in Suryalila (prices vary depending on

    accommodation choice/solo or shared rooms but start from £666 for shared dorm room).

  •  Flights to Seville (Ryanair, Easyjet and BA all fly direct, starting at £90).

  •  Transfer to and from Suryalila (we will book this, usually works out around 30 euros pp).

    Half of the tuition fee is due on booking as a deposit, the other half will be due 6 weeks before the course start date. Deposits are non-refundable, but if cancelled in advance of a month before the start date, they can be transferred to another training (for full details see terms and conditions).

Spanish accommodation fee is also payable once you have decided on your room option. If you would like to discuss a payment plan, do let us know.
