What is Brewlab’s deferral policy?

The opportunity to study and travel internationally is something we hope all students can experience. In the event that Brewlab cancels a program due to an infectious disease outbreak such as COVID-19 or should a student choose to not travel internationally at this time, we encourage all applicants to consider deferring to a future program. A student can defer their application to the same program next year or to another upcoming program that fits their academic or career goals. As long as the student makes this decision 61 or more days prior to the program start date, all deposits can be transferred to the future program.
If Brewlab cancels a program, the Program Coordinator/Manager will invite students to consider deferring. If a student makes the choice not to go abroad before Brewlab has cancelled, they can simply email us to defer their enrolment. Please note that the standard withdrawal policy will be applied to the new session and the application deposit is non-refundable unless a student is not admitted into the Brewlab program or the Brewlab program is cancelled.

If a student prefers to withdraw from a program, they will need to alert the Program Coordinator/Manager in writing, as soon as possible.
As global COVID-19 guidelines and restrictions continue to evolve, so too will our policies in response to the current pandemic. We will do our best to keep our students informed directly and through our social media.
