Non-Covid Cancellation by the Edinburgh Drawing School
If EDS finds it necessary to cancel a class, workshop or session, all participants/students will be notified immediately. If a course must be cancelled completely (out with Covid-19 directive), EDS will give students the opportunity of a full refund or will transfer their payment to another course available at EDS where spaces are still available.
If a singular session of a multi-week course has to be cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances, EDS will contact all students immediately, informing them of an alternative date to make up the total amount of sessions or an alternative tutor to teach the session/s.
Cancellation due to Coronavirus (Covid-19)
The Edinburgh Drawing School (EDS) will respond in accordance with government advice to this unprecedented situation. Cancellations made in accordance and response to COVID 19, such as the decision of tutors or EDS staff to self-isolate, or government imposed lockdown are non-refundable and non-transferable.
Cancellation by You
We will provide a refund if you give written advance notice up to 14 days before the course start date. Please note there is an administration fee of £5 payable in respect of such refunds. You will need to inform a member of administration staff in writing by emailing EDS at .
Please note, if you withdraw for any reason after the course has started you will not be entitled to a refund.
If a student is unable to attend a class due to illness, then EDS must be informed immediately so that the tutor can be notified. If you are missing a class because you suspect that you have developed Covid-19, please let us know immediately so that we can alert fellow student and tutors. Out of normal office hours, please call or text on 07710 968 955 or 07791 121 313. Non-attendance of classes/workshops does not automatically mean a refund, however EDS will assess the circumstances with fair and reasonable consideration.
Abusive or inappropriate language, threatening or disruptive behaviour towards staff or other students will result in you being removed from the course. The course fee will not be reimbursed in this event.
