In order to register for our programs, it is necessary to send K2 Internacional:

Changes are subject to availability and should be justified. There is no extra charge for making changes, and the student will only need to pay if there is a price difference.

INSURANCE

K2 Internacional has Civil Responsibility insurance that covers incidents occurring within the school or any accidents students may suffer on their way to or from their accommodation, as well as during activities organized by the school. We recommend that students take out insurance in their country of residence covering:

  1. Medical assistance (especially for those not belonging to the European Union). EU students should request the International Health Card in their country.

  2. Costs of trip cancellation, civil responsibility, and loss of luggage.

VISA

Citizens of EU countries do not need a visa to enter Spain. Students from other countries should obtain information on visa requirements from the nearest Spanish Embassy or Consulate. Certificates confirming a student's enrollment at K2 Internacional can only be signed, sealed, and sent by authorized K2 Internacional staff. The school is not responsible for rejected visa applications. These certificates have no official validity and only serve as confirmation of a course at one of our schools. Such documents will only be sent to cover the duration of the course initially contracted by the student. K2 Internacional will send, free of charge, to any student who requests them:

  1. Confirmation of the chosen Spanish program.

  2. Invoice for the total program cost (course + accommodation).

If a student visa is rejected, K2 Internacional will refund the program cost minus €200 and any additional basic costs. The student must provide formal proof (original copy) of visa rejection to K2 Internacional to receive a refund. If this original copy is not received by K2 Internacional, 100% of the program cost will be charged.
