3. EFFECTS OF THE PRESCRIPTION
The pre-registration form must be filled in by the student and sent to the email address email@example.com but just doing so does not imply the enrollment of the student at the chosen course, nor the confirmation of the chosen accommodation or other commissioned services. In fact, the student will receive, within 7 days of submitting this form, the official confirmation of the quotation from the School, the availability of the chosen accommodation and other relative documentation.
4. CONFIRMATION OF THE REGISTRATION AND PAYMENT OF THE ACCOUNT

6. METHODS OF PAYMENT
The payment method that InMalta recommends to the student is the bank transfer. As Malta is in the "Sepa" area, the acronym for "Unique Payments Area in Euro", bank transfers to Malta are not considered "international", so they generally have a very low cost and they can be done once the student’s bank receives the IBAN code and the BIC or SWIFT code of the beneficiary beyond the normal data to perform a bank transfer.
The required bank details will be sent to the student along with the official quote of the School.
It is also possible to pay by credit card or Paypal, some schools may charge an extra fee that can be up to 5% of the payment to be made.
InMalta advises the student to ask if the School provides for extra fees if paying with credit cards before paying. In fact, extra fees, if not paid, may be required by the School to the student during the vacation studio.
7. LAST MINUTE PRESCRIPTIONS (RECEIVED LESS THEN 15 DAYS FROM THE START OF THE COURSE)
If the student submits this form less than 15 days from the beginning of the course or from providing the required services, payment must be made in full.

It is mandatory for the student to promptly send the payment receipt to the email address firstname.lastname@example.org
8. GUARANTEE OF NO AGENCY COMMISSIONS
