Enrolments are accepted on condition that students have no illness or infirmities that they do not mention and explain in advance. In the event of discovery of any serious health problem/contagious illness, mental or physical handicap not disclosed at the time of booking, Vivi l’Irlanda Experience reserves the right to terminate the course and repatriate that student at their own cost and without refund of fees.
