Payment in full will confirm your enrolment and is required before commencing the term/workshop. You can pay online, or over the phone with Visa or MasterCard, or at the office with EFTPOS or cash during business hours.

Willoughby Arts Centre reserves the right to amend any class, tutor or schedule. In such circumstances, we will endeavour to provide a substitute class or tutor of equal standing. Should a class have to be cancelled due to insufficient enrolments, any student enrolled in that class will be contacted and an alternative class or refund arranged. Enrolment is dependent on availability. Minimum enrolments are required for all courses.

Priority bookings: Current students have priority and will be automatically re-enrolled for the following term. Students are requested to confirm enrolment with payment in full by the due date.

Only students enrolled may attend courses. Willoughby Arts Centre reserves the right to refuse enrolment without explanation and a refund will be processed in those circumstances.

The Centre is closed on public holidays. Should your class fall on a public holiday, you will be advised of a replacement class date.

Full payment must be made prior to commencement of the course. The Willoughby Arts Centre cannot accept responsibility for changes to students' personal circumstances that prevent attendance. Classes missed are the student’s responsibility and are non-refundable. Students are not entitled to a discount or ‘make-up’ class if they miss a class in any course they have enrolled in.
