We will give a 100% refund on cancellations received before the end of the first week of the course. After the first week we can discuss a refund or transfer you to a later course under special circumstances, such as ill health.

You can take as many or as few courses as you like in any order you like. Having said that, the Introduction to Hinduism courses make a good starting point for their excellent overview of the topics that other courses specialise in.
