At IW we pay close personal attention to each of our students, as we want you to have the best of experiences when in Buenos Aires. Please feel free to get in contact with us when studying at IW. We will be very glad to help you.
By the end of your course we will ask you to complete a Feedback Survey to evaluate the results of your program as well as your experience at IW. This is part of our policies to keep improving our services.
IW is open from Monday to Friday. Our group courses are generally scheduled during the morning, yet we have a very wide and flexible schedule.
We remain closed during Agentinean public holidays. We will do our best to rearrange the lessons you miss in a different schedule.
On the other hand, in the case of group courses, once your group course has started we don't refund cancelled lessons, and in the case of individual lessons you will need to give us notice 24 hours in advance for a rescheduling. Otherwise, we will not refund the money.
Absences and delays will not be refunded.
Certificates of Attendance will be issued upon request and by the end of your course. If you are interested in continuing your studies in other cities in Argentina or online, please feel free to ask. We have some interesting options.
You may obtain Academic Credits for your course with us. We are an accredited school through an Argentinean University. Yet, please get in contact with the Study Abroad Department at your home university before leaving your country. We will be happy to send our programs and all other details your home university might need.
It is the student's responsibility to have all the required documentation to travel abroad as passport, health insurance, visas, etc.
If you book a home stay with us, please take into account that host families are not hotels. You are supposed to keep music low, alcoholic beverages are not allowed, if you want to invite a friend you need to ask your host family for permission, you need to tell the family if you are going to be late, you are not allowed to use the kitchen freely, and you must not eat whatever you find in the fridge, and you will have to pay if you lose the key or break something.
On the other hand, host families will treat you as a member of the family and will share with you their experiences and knowledge. Host families are not always a married couple with two children but a single person or a retired couple who enjoy the idea of having students around. In all cases, host families are open-minded and eager to help you.
Lessons and home stays must be paid at the start of your course. We accept US dollars and Argentine Pesos. We accept credit card payments through Paypal as well.
