Students are requested to attend all the classes on time and avoid missing any classes. No cover up classes are offered if the student misses any classes on his/her own (if the class is not cancelled by the Alliance Française Dubai), in this case the student needs to cover up the missed classes on his/her own. No credit/refund/discount is possible on the missed class.

3. CANCELLATION, POSTPONEMENT AND REFUNDS
