Terms & Conditions

OUR TERMS & CONDITIONS FOR OUR PRODUCTS AND BOOKS

If any product or book sold in our shop is faulty for any reason then we of course offer a full refund. Furthermore, if your product or book is purchased as a gift that would then like to be exchanged, then full exchange is available on all products or books.

OUR TERMS & CONDITIONS FOR EVENT BOOKINGS

If you attend one of our events and are not satisfied with your experience, then (in return for some constructive feedback) we will offer you a full refund. We are always looking for ways to improve, so please always let us know if you have any feedback.

Bookings

Your booking will be confirmed after registration with an email from our ticketing partner Ferve.

The price for each Event is displayed on the website and must be paid in full, and in the currency stated, by debit or credit card at the time of booking. On very rare occasions, the price might change due to unforeseen events, but you will always have the opportunity to cancel in the event that the price increases.

Gift vouchers must be used within 12 months of the purchase date. So if someone has been kind enough to buy you one, or if you’re buying a voucher for someone else, do make a note of the purchase date and remember to use the voucher before it expires.

If you have any special dietary, health or other requirements, please notify us at the time of booking. We will try to accommodate you, although we cannot guarantee that we will be able to at all times. In view of this, it is your responsibility to email us in advance to obtain confirmation via email that we can accommodate you.


Concessions

Valid concession cards: Health Care, Seniors (State Government Issued), Pension, and current student cards.

Cancellations or changes to bookings

We want you to book with confidence, and as such we will accept cancellations up to 7 days before an event, refunding your money or transferring your ticket. You must notify us by email at melbourne@theschooloflife.com.au, and we must receive your email, in order to receive a refund or transfer. Fewer than 7 days before an event, though, we will use our discretion, and in most circumstances we won’t be able to offer you a refund or transfer.

Our ticketing policy is communicated on each classroom page and within your booking confirmation. It reads "please note that we are unable to offer refunds or transfers with less than 7 days cancellation notice before the original class date".

If we need to cancel an event for any reason, we may do so at any time before the event is scheduled to begin. We do not expect this to happen except in exceptional circumstances, and of course we’ll refund your ticket money in full, or offer you a choice of alternative date or event, but we won’t be able to compensate you for any other expenses you’ve incurred in connection with the Event.
