  • Atelier 9 does not arrange accommodation for students, however we will be glad to process an accommodation request as soon as we receive the enrolment from the student. Our partner agency will be glad to contact the student directly for all accommodation details including the invoice which is directly issued by the agency. We have arranged for accommodation for many students from Language Course in the past and we are very confident with the service provided by the accommodation provider. Our partner agency handles the bookings for accommodation directly with the student to make communication easier.
