For all courses a deposit is necessary to secure a place. For the year classes this is £300 and for the Introduction and Bodywork classes this is £80. The deposit for the 2016 July immersion is £150. Deposits are generally payable from 9 months before a course starts.


The balance is payable either:

(1) Complete balance two weeks in advance of the course  (2) Monthly payments by standing order (for Foundation/Apprenticeship)

Please note if for any reason you have to leave the Foundation or Apprentice program early, the balance is payable at the time of leaving – the cost of the course is as a whole, not per session.

Cheques can be posted to Ruskin Apothecary, Ruskin Mill, Old Bristol Road, Nailsworth, GL6 0LA and made out to Ruskin Apothecary

Course payments by Bank Transfer should be sent to: ‘Ruskin Apothecary‘ Sort: 40-43-21, Ac: 71628917



Short courses: Please note that should you need to cancel, we can only refund the deposit if the space is filled. As a rule of thumb if you cancel more than a month before the course starts this should be fine for courses such as bodywork, subtle listening, three day introductions and the July immersion. Any cancellation within the last month before a course is not eligable for a refund because of the additional administrative work load (and stress!) this creates – though we always have a waiting list, many people find they are unable to commit to 3-4 days blocks at such short notice.

Longer courses – the Foundation and Apprenticeship: If you choose to pay by standing order through the year, you agree to commit to pay the full amount even if you should cancel, unless you give us notice of cancellation two months before the start of the course in the case of the Foundation and six months in advance in the case of the Apprenticeship. If we can fill your place, no further unpaid fees are due and we will refund monies already paid for the current year, minus adminstration fees.
