Prices

Each program has its own price, financial aid, duration, materials, etc. The following are general conditions that are detailed in the corresponding information page of each program.

On-line courses

TUITION: Distance learning tuition have their own unique expenses, mainly related with private student support services and graduation coaches. On-line version of a course is usually similar or cheaper than in-person version of the same course.

It's also important to consider the cost savings that online programs allow. Online students pay zero commuting costs, zero parking fees, and zero childcare costs because they don't have to leave home to attend class.

It is our policy to offer all the courses at prices that are actually hundreds of euros less than what it actually costs to be a student at AMST. Even students who don't receive financial aid are already receiving a considerable subsidy to study here! And there is also a generous scholarship and financial aid program (see below).

MATERIALS: As a general rule, the materials are not included in the course price. Usually we can supply them to you at our reduced cost.

We do all our own so you won't need to spend a lot on books and material. Those extra expenses are usually optional and you will incur on them only if you consider it necessary and can afford them.

In-person courses

TUITION: It is our policy to offer all the courses at prices that are actually hundreds of euros less than what it actually costs to be a student at AMST. Even students who don't receive financial aid are already receiving a considerable subsidy to study here! And there is also a generous scholarship and financial aid program (see below).

MATERIALS: As a general rule, the materials are not included in the course price. In some cases, when stated, you can bring your own materials or purchase them from us at our reduced cost. If the instructor supplies the materials, their cost would be added.

LODGING:  Securing local lodging is the learner's responsibility. We can suggest some comfortable lodgings at various rate levels nearby.

VEHICLE: Going every day to the course location and back is the learner's responsibility. We usually select places well linked by public transport. Please see the information in each program page.

Scholarships, Grants and Financial aids

Our policy is that if you are admitted to follow a course, you shouldn't be worried about how to pay it.

We offer several scholarships, grants and financial aids which characteristics can be better described in each program information page.

Scholarships

We offer almost full scholarships to some of the first admitted students. There are several reasons the courses are not fully free: to avoid abuse, which is easy in the internet medium and to engage student involvement.

These scholarships are conditioned to a measure of academic effort and merit. As consideration for such a low price, all we ask is genuine interest in the study and dedication to the commitment and adequate dedicationdo doing all the study and homework specified by the tutor.

Other financial aids

In addition to the above scholarship, more than 85% of all AMST students who apply for aid receive an scholarship. This is money that does not have to be paid back. Quantities vary from 75% to 25% of the total price.

AMST confers financial aids on the basis of financial need. We do not award this money based on any measure of merit - academic, artistic, or anything else. For the students that do receive financial aid, the size of the award depends entirely on their own family's financial situation.

To apply for these aids, you must provide official documents on your financial situation, your family and your job or business. The study will be conducted independently and objectively by an evaluation committee which will have the data, but not the identities of the applicants. Any document submitted will be treated confidentially and will be destroyed after the process.

Payment Schedule

Except otherwise indicated,

  • We require a 20% retainer of the total course cost (refundable only as described below), which must be included with a signed letter of agreement that we will send you after we settle on the details. The signed agreement and payment must arrive back to us as soon as possible, or you may find that the slot has been made unavailable by another deposit which arrived sooner. The retainer will be applied to the course fee.
  • 60% will be payable on the first day of the course and
  • The remaining 20% at the end.
  • We need to receive the materials fee four weeks before the start date to be sure that they can be all ready from the first day.

Refunds and Cancellations

The Letter of Agreement that we will exchange will specify dates and the course specifications, but most importantly it will specify that you've read and accepted our refund and cancellation policy.

As far as refunds and cancellations, if you cancel, whether we return the retainer or return it in part will be at our own discretion, and will depend on several factors, including how close to the start date you cancelled; if you've cancelled for an emergency situation; and if we can find a person on the waiting list that can jump in to your spot. "I just changed my mind" won't work. Remember: We've pushed aside several weeks of paying work to accommodate you! That's what deposits are for!

We reserve the right to be able to cancel for good cause. Now, if we have to cancel, the deposit/retainer can apply to another course at another mutually agreeable time, or will be refunded, as you prefer.
