We review the number of enrolments one week before the start of the course. Volksuniversiteit Amsterdam may cancel or postpone a course if there are not enough enrolments. Make sure you have completed your enrolment at least seven days before the course begins! If we have to cancel your course, we will notify you, and offer an alternative course or refund your course fee.
The name of the teacher is provisional. A different teacher may be assigned to your course without notice.
The programme book gives the maximum number of enrolments for each course. However, we may deviate from this number in incidental cases.

Cancellation of a course is only possible till eight days before the course starts. Then we will refund your course fee, less an administration charge of € 13,50. No refund will be possible after this day. We do not refund course fees for activities costing € 21,50 or less.

Waiting list

If the course of your choice is fully booked, we can place you on a waiting list. If an enrolment is cancelled or in case we organise an extra group, we will let you know.
