  5. Course level assignment / class size
    5.1. Placement in course levels is based on the placement test conducted at the Goethe-Institut.
    5.2. Our courses have at least eight and at most 12 participants. If enrolments are insufficient on the starting date, we reserve the right to cancel or postpone the course. In this case we will offer the participants the opportunity to move to another course or to receive a full refund of the course fee. We regret that we can only conduct courses that have the minimum number of participants by the end of the enrolment period. To avoid cancellations of courses that would have taken place if participants had enrolled in time, we advise students in their own interests to register before the deadline.
  6. Responsibilities of participants
    Participants are obliged to comply with the course rules and house rules applicable to the Goethe-Institut.

    Students who are following the course at present are requested to produce the Course Receipt/Student No. for the next registration and all other transactions.

    Certificates should be collected within 01 month during "office hours" after the announcement of the result. Thereafter Goethe-Institut is not responsible for the same.

    If you wish, you can receive a confirmation of attendence at the end of the course term if the student has 70% attendance of the class and satisfactory result. The confirmation after each full grade is free of charge and for intermediate confirmation, a fee of 1000 LKR will be charged. 

    Please come in person for Course/ Examination Registration.

    For any inquiries please come during office hours between 08.30am & 01.00pm or 03.00pm to 04.30pm.
  7. Liability of the Goethe-Institut
    The liability of GI and its staff is limited to intent and gross negligence. GI also accepts no liability for the cancellation of its services due to force majeur (e.g. natural disasters, fire, floods, war, official orders and all other circumstances beyond the control of the contractual parties).
