Cancellation and refunds

If you find out you cannot attend anymore, having already paid the participation fee, please let us know. We will refund part of the fee you paid. The exact amount will depend on when you cancel your attendance:

  • Before 31st May: 75% of the paid fee will be returned
  • Before 30th June: 50% of the paid fee
  • Before 25th July: 25% of the paid fee

Insurance

We are doing our best to ensure the Summer Academy is as safe as possible, however just in case, you are required to have medical insurance valid in the Czech Republic arranged for your whole stay at Discover. This is especially important for students from outside the EU.

Arrivals and departures

The arrival time is Sunday 5th August 12:00-17:00 and the departure time is Sunday 12th August after 14:00.
In case you cannot find a connection home on Sunday afternoon, there may be a possibility to stay at the academy venue until Monday (13th August) morning.

Since we have a very full programme planned for you, missing even a part of it would be to your own loss. It is thus very important that participants are able to stay at the academy for the whole length of the programme. Leaving earlier or coming late is not going to be permitted unless you have serious reasons for it.
