It is worth remembering that visa applications take different amounts of time for different countries, and that this period is often around 20 working days (or 3 - 4 weeks). If your child requires a visa we advise that you begin the application process as early as possible - most Embassies will accept visa applications up to 3 months before the proposed date of travel. Once you receive the visa we ask that you email us a scanned copy of the child's passport and the visa. We reserve the right to cancel a booking if we have not received a copy of the visa 4 weeks before the course arrival date.
If the Short-Term Study (Child) visa application is refused, then provided we receive a valid visa refusal letter, a full refund will be given, minus a £200 administration fee. No refund will be given in the instance where either or both of the following criteria apply:
- The visa application was not made early enough to allow for the necessary application time period as indicated by the UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI)
- Certain necessary documentation, as indicated by the UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI), was not provided.
Where a visa is refused, the parent/ guardian must be able to prove that all necessary steps were taken to obtain the correct visa. For more information on applying for a visa see the links below:
All students attending our summer school programs must have fully comprehensive travel insurance. Your English Summer, in association with Guard Me International Insurance, provides all students with comprehensive travel insurance the price of which is included in the course fees, unless:
- The parent or guardian explicitly informs us in writing that they do not wish to use the insurance provided by Your English Summer.
- The booking is made through an agent who has declined to use the travel insurance offered by Your English Summer.
