* Availability is not guaranteed as limitations apply (maximum 30 places). The accommodation shall be granted based on the principle “first come, first served”. Be aware that if your application for accommodation is rejected, your application for the program will remain valid and binding. 



Given that Plan ₿ shall reserve to students one of the places available on the program and the fact that it is not possible to fill the vacancy left by a student, enrolled students shall not be entitled to refund of tuition fees. 

No refunds will be made in case of a student’s suspension or dismissal for disciplinary or academic reasons. For the school’s mandatory terms and rules of behaviour, see https://www.fus.edu/sites/default/files/inline-files/FUS-student-handbook%2021-22.pdf.

No refund for Residence charges will be made after the student checks into the residence. 



The relationship between the parties shall be governed entirely by Swiss substantive laws, excluding conventional and private international law norms. 

Any dispute arising from or simply related to the Plan ₿ Summer School shall be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Ordinary Courts in the City of Lugano (Switzerland).
