In addition to the registration fee, those students having applied for accommodation at Las Llamas Campus or in La Playa Residence have to pay the accommodation reservation (€60) that shall be discounted from the total cost of the requested accommodation. The remaining amount will be paid upon confirmation of your place in the accommodation. If you fail to pay for the accommodation 3 weeks before the course starts, the booking will be cancelled.
