Parnassos course terms and conditions


  • By enrolling you agree to the course terms and conditions and to the payment of the full course fee.
  • Places are allocated on a "first come, first served" basis until the maximum number of participants per course is met.
  • Course fees will not be refunded, unless a course is cancelled due to organisational reasons. An exception is made in case of auditions: a refund of the audition fee will be made if a participant is rejected for a role in the production. In case of prolonged illness or injury a refund may be granted if a medical certificate is provided. The same rules apply for students who receive private tutoring. They are entitled to a refund of 2/3 of the course fee for any missed lessons caused by medical complications.
  • Parnassos reserves the right to either cancel or postpone a course in case an insufficient number of participants have enrolled.
  • Should you enrol for a course in price category 1 or 2, you will need to show a Student Card, employee number or an Alumni Card to verify your right to this discount. We will check all cards and employee numbers during the first class meeting.
  • Parnassos has made arrangements with a number of other universities within the Netherlands. Students at these universities are eligible for price category 1. Please check the list of participating universities at Price categories. If your university is not listed, you are NOT eligible for this discount.
  • If your contact information and/or price category change, contact the course administration before enrolling for another course.
  • Comments, questions or complaints about courses can be sent by e-mail to the course administration at Parnassos cannot be held responsible for any direct correspondence between you and the teacher.
  • In the case of private tutoring, a time will be arranged for lessons, which will be given weekly or every two weeks. Arranged times cannot be changed, unless the schedules need to be changed due to organisational reasons. If this is the case, the student will receive notice by e-mail or by phone to arrange a new time.  
  • No rights can be derived from any possible misprints or mistakes in announced activities or prices. As course programmes are planned months in advance, the course day, course time or teacher is subject to change, and may differ from any previously-issued publications.
  • If a lesson is cancelled, the lesson will be rescheduled before the end of the course period. This may differ from the usual day or time. Due to this, students will need to take into account that a course may last several weeks longer than indicated.
  • If the minimum number of participants is not met, a course could still start if all prospective students agree to having reduced hours for the same fee.
  • If a student cannot attend a class, he/she should contact reception as soon as possible by phone (030 253 8448).
  • If a course has entry requirements (as specified on the website) and the teacher feels that the student is struggling to meet them, Parnassos reserves the right to move the student to another course. Any change in course fees will be adjusted accordingly.  
  • Participating in a course is entirely at the student’s own risk.
  • Students should adhere to general norms and values. Parnassos reserves the right to refuse a participant further access to the course if we, in our opinion, feel that he/she does not meet this requirement.
  • Photographs may be taken during courses or activities by a photographer from Parnassos. These pictures will be used for publicity, such as folders, flyers, posters, pictures on our website etc. Unless you raise an objection in writing prior to the course (Parnassos, Course Administration, Kruisstraat 201, 3581 GK Utrecht, stating the course you’re participating in), Parnassos will assume that you agree with the use of these pictures. Alternatively, you can also tell the photographer you do not wish to be photographed.
