18. Important Information:

 a) The participant accepts that the mode of the course can change from in-person to online at any time if the health situation requires it. Please note that changes can be made autonomously by the school, but groups can also request the change, requiring the consent of all participants. The initiation of groups requires a minimum number of participants, which varies by course type. Please consider this, especially if planning to travel around the start of the course, and consult the school via email in every case.

 

 b) The participant cannot claim any compensation, penalty payments, or interest in case a course  gets canceled due to insufficient numbers.

 

 c) Our school is committed to social responsibility. Magyar Iskola Kft. aims to reduce paper usage both during the application process and language classes. Therefore, most official documents (application form, level assessment, T&Cs, invoice, proof of language level, etc.) are accessible electronically.

 

 d) For administrative purposes, our school (Magyar Iskola Kft.) can provide a certificate of school attendance for prospective students.

 

Important Update: The new immigration law (Act XC of 2023) establishes new legal grounds, and the previous "Other purposes" category is no longer included. Therefore, this document can no longer be used to justify the purpose of stay.

 

The school can issue the certificate only if students complete our application form and pay the full course fee. The maximum duration is 3 modules (up to 6 months). Please note that course fees are non-refundable once the document is issued. If a student is unable to start the in-person course for any reason, the fee can be applied to our online courses. The student has one year to use the amount (start the course).
