Application for a class transfer must be addressed in writing by e-mail to the Director (adelaide@af.org.au) prior to the third week of term. Students whose attendance is less than 70% may be asked to repeat the same level for the next term if they choose to re-enrol.

Level assessment:

A level assessment is required to determine each student's appropriate class level.

Students with prior knowledge of French must complete and submit a level assessment request form before enrolling in a course.

Class Size and Refund Policy:

 Alliance Française d’Adelaide (AFA) is committed to providing an exceptional learning experience for our students. We strive to maintain a vibrant and engaging classroom environment. In the event that a class has fewer than six students enrolled, AFA reserves the right to take one of the following actions, based on the circumstances:

 a) Class Closure and Full Refund: If the number of students in a class falls below six, AFA may choose to close the class. In this case, enrolled students will be entitled to a full refund of the fees paid for the affected course. AFA will make every effort to process the refund in a timely manner.

 b) Reduction of Class Hours: Alternatively, in certain situations, AFA may opt to reduce the number of class hours in the affected course while maintaining the original price of the course. Such a reduction will be made with the intention of maintaining the educational quality and ensuring a comprehensive learning experience for our students. No refunds will be provided in the case of a reduction in class hours.

 AFA values transparency and will communicate any changes to students affected by these circumstances well in advance to minimize disruption. Our priority is to provide the best possible learning environment while managing class sizes effectively.

 By enrolling in a course at Alliance Française d’Adelaïde, you acknowledge and accept the conditions outlined in this policy regarding class size and potential adjustments.

 Please ensure you have read and understood these terms and conditions before enrolling in any of our courses. If you have any questions or require clarification on any aspect of this policy, do not hesitate to contact us.


Public Holidays:

Classes will not be held on South Australian public holidays, but additional time may be added to some classes or rescheduled within the term. Refunds will not be given to students who are unable to attend replacement sessions.
