The fees for a four-week elective course would be 899 British pounds (1395 US dollars), comprising:

  • 299 British pounds ( 465 US dollars) towards food, accommodation, local travel, and pick up/drop off from Calicut or Mysore by car.
  • 600 British Pound (930 US dollars) tuition fees.

The doctors and other staff involved in the program volunteer their time; hence, the fee is treated as a donation to ASHWINI to be used entirely for the health program. Some students raise this as a donation from friends and well-wishers.

Each extra week would be 125 British pounds (200 US dollars) covering both tuition fees and boarding/lodging charges.

Payment details:

Payment for the electives is required to be made in two installments:

Advance to confirm booking

100 British pounds needs to be paid as advance to the account mentioned below. Once we receive this advance, your booking will be confirmed and you will be intimated. This advance amount is a non-refundable deposit.

If you would rather prefer to pay the entire fees in one go to minimize bank charges, we welcome that too and your booking will be confirmed immediately.

Balance Fees

If you pay only the 100 pounds advance amount, then the balance amount needs to be paid at least 2 months prior to the beginning of the course.

Cancellation Procedure

If for any unavoidable reasons, the students are not able to participate in the program after paying the entire course fees, they can request for cancellation. ASHWINI will make arrangement to return the balance fees to the students.
