date. For one-day courses, you are advised to book at least
two-weeks in advance.
Please make sure that you check the detailed course information
sheet prior to enrolling for a course. These are available on

Medway Adult Education reserves the right to make changes to
published details including dates, times, locations and prices.
If your chosen course is full and there are no suitable
alternatives, you can be put onto a waiting list. If places become
available we will contact you.
Courses will run when they have reached the minimum numbers for
viability. In some cases there may still be places available, which
can be enrolled when the course has already started. For most
courses the fee charged to enter a course that has already
commenced will be a pro-rata amount calculated on the length of
time that a course has left to run. For many courses it is possible
to join at any time but examination courses cannot be joined after
the end of the third week. If there is a course you are interested
in, please enquire at the office, phone 01634
338400 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
