General conditions

The Language Academy is part of UvA Talen B.V. Where you see The Language Academy written in the following conditions, you can also read UvA Talen B.V.


  1. You enroll in one of our online courses through the website. Tuition for the course is paid upon enrollment. You will receive the invoice by email showing the applicable sales tax of 0%.
  2. The course in which you have enrolled will be available for the duration you have selected (3, 6 or 12 months).

Cooling-off Period

  1. A Language Academy course is a digital product. From the moment you enroll and pay, you have a legal right to a 14-day cooling-off period to reconsider your purchase. You cannot use the product during this cooling-off period. In order to give you the opportunity to assess the course, you can work through a free demo comprised of the two first chapters.
  2. If you want to use the product within this 14-day period, you can waive the cooling-off period. You can indicate this on our website and then start using the product immediately.



  1. If after completing a Language Academy course you decide to take a subsequent course at The Language Academy, within a limited six-month period you can take advantage of a €25.00 discount on the course you want to take. This six-month period starts from the moment that the duration of the course you have already purchased ends, or at the moment you have completed the course by downloading your certificate.


The Language Academy gives you the option to purchase an extension so you can use your course for a longer duration. You can purchase the extension up to the last day before the end of the course contract.
