You can request a refund up to ten working days after confirmation that your purchase has been completed, provided the course has not started (Saturdays, Sundays or public holidays are not counted as “working days”). Any request for withdrawal after ten days following purchase, or once the course has started, if approved, will receive a credit note which can be used towards paying for entry to a future Capra Course. This will only be offered in the first three weeks of the course.

In cases where a refund is given, 20% of the course fee will be charged as an administration fee. Please note that this is due to the costs associated with using PayPal which are incurred by Capra Course.
