DS will provide all services for courses booked as listed in the DS offer documents (brochure/website). Once a booking has been sent to and confirmed by the DS the client agrees to be bound by the booking and cancellation conditions of the DS.
Any additional chargeable supplements will be specified at the time of booking. Any items not specifically included in the course as a standard item are subject to availability. Any items not specifically included in the course must be requested in writing and must be confirmed in writing by the DS before they will be deemed to be part of the course booking.

Prices are valid for one calendar year and are revised on 1st January each year. It is the responsibility of the client to ensure that they are aware of the current price for the course being booked. The DS reserves the right to alter prices at any other time of the year should unforeseen circumstances require it.
Cancellations & Refunds
All fees paid are non refundable and credits will only be allowed at the discretion of the management of the DS.
In every case a refusal must be appealed. If the appeal is unsuccessful fees will be refunded subject to a properly completed visa application having been made. We will retain an administration fee of EUR 200.
The DS reserves the right not to refund fees in cases where an incomplete or deficient application has been made. An incomplete/deficient application is one where the minimum documentation required by the Irish visa office is not provided as part of the application. The DSE will require documentary evidence of the visa refusal and of the refusal of the appeal and will seek independent verification from relevant government departments before any refund is made.
In the case where an individual makes a fraudulent application there is no refund.
Important: You must retain copies of the visa application, appeal and any accompanying documents. In order to assist with visa applications and to provide a refund we may need to see application documents.
Visa Requiring Nationals
If your course is for longer than three months and you require a visa to travel to Ireland, you must agree to additional terms and conditions as required by Irish immigration authorities.
The DS holds insurance as required by Irish law. The DS does not provide travel insurance for students. Before arrival all persons participating in DS programmes should arrange their own insurance against all expenses that might arise due to accident, illness or loss of luggage, personal effects and money. Providers of activities such as horse-riding, sailing, cycling etc. may require that minors have an insurance waiver signed by their parent, guardian or group leader before commencement of such activities.
Students must notify the DS of any medical conditions that may influence their stay in Ireland. The DS reserves the right to send students home if, in the opinion of the DS management, a medical condition makes continuing a course of study untenable.
Students are liable for any damage caused by them and payment for such damage must be made immediately.
All students will be informed of DS code of conduct and behaviour at the commencement of all courses. Breaches of DS rules of conduct will result in disciplinary action up to and including immediate expulsion for serious offences. If a student is expelled from the DS there will be no refund or credit under any circumstances.
Any disputes relating to services provided by the DS must be brought to the attention of the DS management while the complainant is in Ireland. The DS will not entertain complaints about services provided where these complaints were not reported to the DS at the time. Where necessary any legal disputes will be heard in the courts of the Republic of Ireland.
