- Payment - Full payment of the course must be made before the course starts.

- Cancellation: It is not possible to cancel your course once the course has started even if you do not attend the lessons. This also applies to students who, for whatever reason, are only in the Netherlands on a temporary basis. Cancellation for other commitments, even if these were not known at the time of registration, is not possible There is a reconsideration period allowing you to cancel 14 days after registering without incurring any fees. If you cancel your course after this period and before your course starts an administration fee of 55 euros will be deducted from your course fee.

- All administrative questions should be directed to the BLTC office in writing (either letter or email) and not to the teachers.

- Complaints procedure
Customer satisfaction and providing students with quality courses is central to BLTC. Right from the start we engage with our students and assess their levels and the suitability of the courses they wish to attend. During the course students are encouraged to give feedback to gauge their ongoing satisfaction and progress. If there is a problem the quickest way of solving this is to talk to our Assistant Director of studies. However, in the unlikely event of a complaint the procedure at BLTC is as follows:
- Please send an email to the Director of Studies at BLTC. Your complaint will be registered and we will contact you to discuss, in detail, the nature of your complaint.
- BLTC will then investigate the complaint in full and will send you an email with the outcome and solution within 14 days. (Should this process take longer than 14 days, BLTC will keep you informed each week of its progress).
- In the case where a student does not agree with the outcome, the complaint will be forwarded to an independent adjudicator, Martha Harel (firstname.lastname@example.org). The judgment of the adjudicator is binding for BLTC and action will be taken within 4 weeks.
- Records of complaints will be placed on file for 2 years.
- Any complaints received are handled with strict confidentiality.
- All complaints must be in writing.
