INSURANCE

The Spanish Social Security offers medical attention to European Union citizens, upon presentation of a European Health Card issued by their country of residence. Nationals of other countries should consult their insurance company about coverage in Spain before arrival. Students at Quorum are covered by an insurance of civil responsibility while in the school premises. We recommend that students sign up for insurance for cases such as illnesses, accidents or theft.

PLEASE NOTE

We have courses at all levels, but on rare occasions, we may find that we only have one student at a particular level. In this instance we reserve the right to provide a reduced number of individual lessons. Students authorize Quorum to use those photographic material and images taken during their course and on which the student might appear. Quorum reserves the right to use this material for promotions and publicity of its programmes. The photographic materials will not be used for other commercial use other than publicity and promotions.
In case of already starting a course and you want to prolong for extra weeks, the price will be equivalent to the numbers of weeks you choose. Unfortunately, we cannot charge only the price difference because it is an offer which is charged at the moment of booking and paying in advance.
Centro de Idiomas Quorum is a private organization. It is not recognized by the Andalusian Ministry of Science and Education or by another Public Administration. Therefore, the title issued by our centre, officially neither has an academic nor a vocational validity.

ACCOMMODATION CONDITIONS

Quorum will make its best efforts to meet your specified requirements, but reserves the right to provide alternate accommodations as not all accommodations might be available at all times. One week accommodation is considered to be six nights. Accommodations start at 13,00 h. on Sunday and end at 11,00 h. on Saturday. Any other nights carry an extra fee.
