Terms and conditions annual courses

Registering and conducting debateX courses

The groups will have a maximum number of 10 participants and will be formed in the order of registration, based on the principle of first come - first served, and the place is guaranteed when the participation fee is paid.

From the moment the courses start, other students can register up to the third session, inclusive. After the third session, enrolled students will be assigned to a group starting in the second semester, which starts in February.

 

Since debating is a team sport par excellence, we cannot form groups that do not meet the minimum number of 6 participants. In this case, we will fully refund the amounts paid as the participation fee.

Sessions from which students are absent (for any reason, including technical reasons unrelated to the organization of the course) cannot be recovered, and the amount related to the missed sessions is not refunded.

Minimum level of English - B2

Because all courses are conducted in English, a B2 level of fluency in English is required at the time of enrolment. Therefore, we are forced to refuse enrollment to those who do not meet the minimum B2 level, respectively to withdraw the right to participate to students who do not meet the minimum level required by the English language, B1-B2 (if the course starts and we find that the English level is not still appropriate). But this does not have to mean a "Good bye!" definitive. We can recommend to students who are in this situation (we have had very few over time) the courses of some of the foreign language schools that are our partners.

At debateX, we want every participant to have the best possible learning experience and provide the most inclusive learning environment possible. So, if you or your child have special learning needs or other needs that we need to take into account, please let us know at the enrollment stage.

Completion of debate courses

To graduate and be eligible to register for the next debate module, students must attend at least 10 of the 14 sessions of a given semester.

 

Participants will receive a graduation certificate at the end of a Study Year, respectively after completing two semesters of debates, whether they are followed consecutively or with a break of one semester.

At the end of a single debate module, at the express request of the learners, we can provide a certificate of completion.

Conditions of withdrawal from debateX courses

If you wish to withdraw from the debateX courses, you must notify us in writing at debatex@ardor-muntenia.ro at least 7 working days before the date of termination of participation. Depending on the corresponding situation, the mentions below will apply.

 

  • If you wish to withdraw before the start of the course, we will fully refund the amount paid;

  • If you wish to withdraw after the start of the course, you can do so until session 3 by sending an email to debatex@ardor-muntenia.ro. In case of withdrawal before session 3, 80% of the paid amount will be refunded;

  • After the start of the module, there can be no transfers from one group to another, except in exceptional situations, such as a change of school timetable. Any transfers will only be made if the experience in debates, the age category and the minimum and maximum number of participants for all the groups involved are respected.
