- pay the enrolment fee stated on page 2, without which the application is not valid.
- accept the school regulations, which will be presented for signing on the first day of the Course.
3) ENROLMENT METHODS –Enrolment is made by completing and signing the Application Form according to these General Conditions, paying the Enrolment Fee indicated on page 2 and sending it together with the required Documents either by e-mail (scanned in) to email@example.com or posted to the following address: ADLM S.r.l., Via Montenapoleone 5, 20121 Milano, Italy. NB This Application Form must be printed, filled in by hand in BLOCK CAPITALS and signed before being sent. ADLM reserves the right to accept this application. ADLM will notify the Applicant about the acceptance or non-acceptance of this application (by e-mail to the relevant e-mail address given by the Applicant on page 1 of this Application Form) within 15 days from the date of receipt of the application itself (received either through e-mail or post). If the application is accepted, enrolment onto the course is provisionally completed until the admission procedure is definitively completed according to Article 4 below.
3a) 3-YEAR COURSES- Enrolment onto the second or third year of a 3-year course will be possible once the Student has successfully completed the relevant course requirements for the previous year.
4) ADMISSION – To be granted admission onto the Course, the Student must have previously paid both the Enrolment Fee and the Tuition Fee indicated on page 2 in full by bank
wire transfer, as stated in Articles 5 and 5a below.
4a) CONDITIONAL ADMISSION- Students who are currently either still in their final year of high school/university or are still attending an English or Italian language course (and who therefore have not yet completed their final exams and/or have not yet received their final certificate to prove that they have finished their studies) can apply for a course at ADLM. If a candidate who is still in their final year of high school/university or who is still attending an English or Italian language course wants to apply for a course, a formal letter from their current school/university/place of study attesting the qualification they are currently studying for, the date they will finish their studies, and the expected date they will receive their results/official certificate must be presented together with the rest of the Documents listed at section 22 below. This document will act as a temporary substitute for the final certificate which must be sent as soon as the student has received it. If a student who still studying at high school/university or who is still attending an English or Italian language course formally applies for a course and their application is accepted, they will be given a CONDITIONAL OFFER of a place on their chosen course until they have successfully finished their studies, passed their exams, and have presented the official certificate to ADLM as proof of this. Such candidates complete the standard admissions procedure as described in articles 3 and 4 above, with the only difference that the completed admission is conditional. In the event that a student who has been conditionally admitted onto a course fails to achieve the required qualification, he/she can either request a total reimbursement of all fees paid, or request for the fees to be deferred to the next academic year (on condition that they obtain the required qualification) as stated in articles 7 and 8 below. In both cases, failure to achieve the qualification must be documented and proven by means of a formal letter addressed to ADLM from the school/institution where the student is currently studying.

Preparatory Courses) and are marked out of thirty with a pass rate of 18/30. In the event of a fail (a mark lower than 18/30) in up to a maximum of 3 modules, the student concerned
