Booking Terms

Our students are at the heart of everything we do; our aim is to provide great courses, great customer service, and to be as accommodating and flexible as possible. Our courses require lots of planning, and our terms and conditions are in place to ensure we provide a smooth and seamless experience to all of our students. Please read the following prior to booking one of our courses.

Temporary COVID-19 Terms

We have been required by law to do a risk assessment prior to re-opening to make our courses COVID-safe, meaning that there are precautions we must both take to ensure a mutually safe environment. We will send you copies of our Track and Trace Declaration and Student Check List when you book, so you are fully aware of what is involved.

If you are unwell and think that you may have Coronavirus, we will not charge you a fee for cancellations made within less than 24 hours. We would advise you to review the guidance from the NHS if you are unwell. We are recording all instances of cancellations, and will attempt to contact you after the relevant period to check your condition. If you are unable to attend your course we would appreciate you contacting us at the earliest opportunity, as any missed courses without contact will still be charged at the full amount. This means that you can re-schedule without penalty as long as you contact us asap to let us know.

When You Book

Bookings should ideally be made at least two weeks before the course date. We will send you a deposit request after your course date has been agreed with the tutor, which is payable immediately. If your deposit isn’t received within three days of this request, and we haven't heard from you, then we will assume that you no longer wish to book and the date will be re-allocated to another student. Your final balance payment must be made no later than two weeks before the course date or the course will be cancelled or re-allocated. Deposits are non-refundable should you fail to pay the balance as requested. Late bookings (i.e. within two weeks of the course date) must be paid for in full within 24 hours of our payment request, or we will assume that you no longer wish to book and the date will be re-allocated. Please note that it is your responsibility to send your payments on time - we do not send out payment reminders or "chasing" emails.

Cancellations and Refunds

We're unable to offer refunds if you want to cancel your training course unless you cancel your booking within 24 hours of making the original booking by email. You will receive a refund excluding any credit card or other administrative fees, and an additional cancellation fee per booking will be charged at £20. Refunds will be made to the credit or debit card used to make your booking. This also applies to bookings that have been agreed at short notice with payment to be made on the day, and for which a confirmation email has been sent.

Courses arranged at our Haworth venue, on a non-scheduled date to fit around your schedule, carry a 25% surcharge. The total course fee is payable at the time of booking, and is non-refundable should you change your mind.

If we have to postpone or cancel a course for reasons beyond our control we will always transfer you at no additional cost to another course date at the same venue and with the same tutor. If you choose not to transfer to an alternative date then your deposit is non-refundable.

Exceptional Circumstances

In exceptional circumstances such as a bereavement, we will offer you a transfer onto a later course date with no penalty fees. This decision is made at our sole discretion and will only be considered if the bereavement relates to an immediate family member, for example a partner, child, parent or sibling.

Name Changes

Names of students may be changed on payment of a fee of £20 per student, per booking up to the day before the scheduled booking. In addition, if there is a difference between the original fee paid and the current fee available at the time the change is made, the customer will be required to pay any increase fee since the original booking. No refund will be given if the new fee is lower.

Course Transfers

The following charges will apply if you wish to transfer your booking to a later course date:

A £40 re-booking fee will apply

If you have purchased your course at a discounted price you will have to pay the the full course price.

The choice of course date must be specified at the time of transfer, or the instruction will be considered a cancellation.

The option to transfer a course date can only be used once, after which any additional request will be considered a cancellation. All outstanding payments will remain due, irrespective of the number of working days notice given for the cancellation.

Course Dates and Venues

Yorkshire Massage Courses reserves the right to alter course dates and venues without liability.

Our courses run on weekdays. If you can only attend on a Saturday a surcharge will apply.

In the event of a cancellation where an alternative cannot be provided in respect of that course, a full refund will be offered.

Yorkshire Massage Courses will not normally reimburse travel or accommodation expenses, and is not able to offer refunds for cancellations outside our control, including adverse weather conditions, flooding or industrial action.

Course Content

In order to respond rapidly to changes in market demand Yorkshire Massage Courses reserves the right to alter its course content and/or tutor.


We put your safety and comfort first at all times, and as with any treatment there are contraindications to consider which may affect your participation in a class or whether it is appropriate for you to attend. Please let us know at the time of booking if you have a medical condition, are receiving any form of medical treatment, or are taking medicines for any ongoing condition from your GP or any other medical practitioner for any reason. If you have any concerns we are happy to cover these before the course.

Late Arrivals and No-Shows

You are accepted onto a course on the understanding that you attend on the date and at the time specified in your confirmation email. Classes will commence promptly at the time stated, irrespective of whether all students are present, and are not delayed for late-comers. Tutors are not responsible for repeating notes or stages missed, and can refuse to admit you at their discretion. If you arrive later than 30 minutes after the time specified in your confirmation email your course may have to be postponed to a later date, which will incur a £40 re-booking fee.


Paying for and/or attending a course does not guarantee the awarding of a diploma or certificate. Diplomas are gained by the successful fulfilment of the criteria set out by Yorkshire Massage Courses and its accrediting bodies, and the awarding of diplomas is at the discretion of the tutor. In the case of a dispute the decision of the Principal is final. Should you lose your original diploma a replacement can be issued, at our discretion, as long as you can confirm the date(s) you attended your course. An admin fee of £5.99 per diploma (inc P&P) is payable.

Other Terms

1. The use of camcorders, mobile phone cameras and audio equipment during a class is not permitted.

2. All courses, fees and discounts are subject to change without prior notice.

3. Students unable to understand or speak English must arrange a private course at an additional fee of £50, and bring a suitably qualified interpreter.

4. These conditions form the main part of the contract between Yoorkshire Massage Courses and the Student. Only the Principal shall be authorised to alter or waive any of the aforementioned terms and conditions.


If any student behaves improperly either before or during an assessment, or damages or removes any equipment belonging to Yorkshire Massage Courses, they will be asked to leave immediately and no refund of fees will be given.
