Guaranteed satisfaction or your money back
In case of a complaint referring to a service that does not correspond to the description in the web of the Spanish Courses Unamuno (SCU), you must present it in writing to the administration of the school before finishing the first week. SCU will rectify the situation within a period of 24 hours. If the service that caused the complaint had not been modified in agreement by the web, there are two possibilities:
If we agree with you, we will return to you the total amount of the course and the accommodation.
If we do not reach a friendly agreement with you, the complaint will be handled by the competent authorities of the Committee of Castile and León that will solve the case in favour or in opposition to the refund of the corresponding money.
