Terms of Sales


To enroll at the ILCF, the student must be 18 years old minimum (17 years old with parental permission) and must have at least a secondary degree diploma, except for monthly intensive courses and summer courses.

Every new learner takes a written and oral test in order to establish his/her level and therefore his/her timetable. DUEF, DELF and DALF diplomas will be taken into account for the placement in a level group.


Any UCLy training enrolment (tailor-made courses, module, session, specific program, semester, year or summer) involves commitment for an education during the duration of the chosen program.

Payments by instalments do not absolve the payer from the debt incurred with the establishment : this commitment is an order and must be fully honored.  The learners must must be liable for his/her debts in order to participate to evaluations, of every kind (oral, written, continuous assessments, exams…). The UCLy reserves the right to forbid any evaluation, with any consequences, to a learner who hasn’t fully paid his/her scholarship

The pedagogical team reserves the right :

  • To modify the course location, its proceeding and, in a minor way, the program content, or to postpone if circumstances make it necessary ;
    To propose a distant learning for a training offered on site in the first place, if circumstances make it necessary ;
  • To cancel the training especially if the number of participants is deemed pedagogically insufficient. In that case, a full refund of the already made deposits will be done, without any complementary compensation ;
  • To refuse any learner’s enrolment for a legitimate and non discriminatory reason ;
  • To expel, according to disciplinary proceeding, a learner who will contradict the goal pursued by the institute ; exclusion will be done without compensation nor refund, even partial.


The enrolment is effective as soon as the pre-enrolment form has been received. Cancellation or drop out must be confirmed in writing (email or post) the ILCF secretary :

  • In case of visa refusal from the country of origin, and on presentation of original proof, the deposit will be refunded, after deduction of operating fees of 150 euros, if the secretary has been informed, in writing, within a maximum of 8 days before the level tests take place. Beyond this date, the whole payment already settled will remain the property of the ILCF.
  • In case of withdrawal before training starts or drop out after training started, no amount will be refunded to the learner. The whole payment will remain the property of the ILCF.
  • A learner starting the training he/she enrolled to will have to pay the totality of the charged price. Nevertheless, if the drop out is a case of force majeure (job loss, move, serious disease) notified by registered letter with confirmation of receipt without undue delay with all the documentary proof, the fees payment will be adjusted pro rata temporis to the effective received training.  In such case, the ILCF reserves the right to bill administrative fees related to the training.

All drop out requests :
