Terms and conditions

Classes comprise a maximum of 15 students. Classes with fewer than 3 applicants might not open. In the case where there is a great demand for a particular course, the AFMM might have to divide the students into 2 classes in order to obtain an equal number of students.

Unless otherwise indicated on the course’s brochure, textbooks and/or examination fees are not included in the course fees.

Should there be insufficient applicants to a particular course, the course might be cancelled and fees fully refunded. Should a student wish to cancel a registration before the course is due to start, fees will be refunded less a €15 administration fee. The AFMM regrets that there will be no refunds for classes not attended or for the cancellation of a course by a student once the course has begun. Course fees are non-transferable.

Given the covid-19 situation, courses might be held either online or at the AFMM’s premises. Decisions will be taken at the discretion of the AFMM, depending on the government’s recommendations. As the context is independent from the AFMM’s control, no refund will be possible.

Students applying for any course may opt to become a Member by paying a membership fee of €20 (€25 – Family rate). Membership is valid for one year and gives its members a reduction on AFMM courses, exams and activities. The Mediathèque annual subscription fee is €10 and gives its members access to AFMM physical library as well as to Culturethèque, the French online multimedia library of the Institut Français.


In keeping our membership records, personal data is inevitably kept about our members. The processing of such data is necessary in order to offer a better service and to keep track of our mutual obligations. We may also use it to ensure that we comply with Maltese law, or to send you further information about our courses and services. We do not share your details with third parties other than as necessary to perform our contract with you.
