Terms & Conditions

Terms & Conditions

We reserve the right to make amendments to the Molecular Bar Academy courses content and recipes without notice.

Application requirements

You must be 18 years or over to attend any course.

Skill Levels

If you are unsure of your skill requirements for a course, please phone us so we can help ascertain your level of experience before booking. We rely on students being able to self assess their own skill level and we are happy to assist with this, but we cannot be held liable if you book a course much higher or lower than your actual skill level.

Please send as an email to info@molecularbaracademy.com if you are in doubt.

Equal Opportunities

We are committed to ensuring that no students receive less favourable treatment on the grounds of race, sex, religion, marital status, nationality, ethnic origin, disability or sexual orientation.
All students will be provided with the appropriate training for their needs, regardless of their race, sex, religion, marital status, nationality, ethnic origin, disability or sexual orientation.  The Molecular Bar Academy will make no distinction based on such grounds between the training, facilities and benefits it provides to its students.
It is the responsibility of all students to ensure that they abide by this policy, and you can contribute in particular by:

  • Not discriminating against fellow students, tutors, suppliers, The Molecular Bar Academy staff and members of the public with whom you come into contact with for the duration of the course.
  • Not inducing or attempting to induce others to practice unlawful discrimination.

If you consider that you are a victim of unlawful discrimination, you should raise this issue through the grievance procedure. You should be ensured that The Molecular Bar Academy will at all times take such allegations seriously and will carry out a full investigation and take appropriate measures against unacceptable behaviour.

Health & Safety

All participants should wear shoes with flat, non-slip soles and covered toes. You cannot enter the training area unless you are wearing the correct footwear, you must wear your uniform at all times, long hair must be tied back in the training area and if necessary wear a hairnet. We are not responsible for any damage that occurs to your clothing.
Please inform us in advance of any allergies, disabilities, diabetes, pregnancy, epilepsy, learning difficulties and anything that we may need to know for your own safety and the safety of others.
The Academy takes the matter of illegal drugs very seriously. We are aware of the hazards of training under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Substance abuse at the academy is a matter taken very seriously. The alcohol/drugs can heighten feelings of disorientation and may potentially create hazardous situations for both students and staff. If a student is attending our courses under the influence of alcohol, solvents or illegal drugs, then there will be consequences such as a fixed period exclusion. More serious disciplinary consequences will be considered, dependent upon individual circumstances.

Certificated Courses

You will receive your certificate once you completed your course.

Course Programme

Syllabus is subject to change based on the country where the course will be held to meet the legal requirements of such country.

Class Hours and size

The set hours and training location within The Molecular Bar Academy development are 9.00 – 17.00. This can change on a daily basis due certain tasks/sectors taking different amounts of time. Students will be expected to clean the station that they have been working at.
We require a minimum of 5 students on each course. If we do not have 5 students enrolled for any course, The Molecular Bar Academy has the right to postpone the course start date. This will be communicated at least 7 days before the course is due to start.


Although our courses are highly practical, students will be required to sit a written assessment upon completion of the course. The assessment is based on the skills and techniques learnt during the training.


All of our courses require payment in full at least eight weeks before the course start date.
All of our courses require a 10% deposit (this is non-refundable) and must be paid at the time of booking to secure a place on the course. The full balance of the course must be paid at least eight weeks before the course start date. Failure to do so may result in losing your place on the course and retention of your deposit.
We accept: MasterCard/Visa credit and debit cards and Switch/Solo/Maestro cards (for the deposit payment only).

Cancellations & Refunds Policy

The Molecular Bar Academy courses are secured with a non-refundable deposit, with the outstanding balance being due eight weeks prior to the start of the course. If you choose to have the didactic kit, this is also non refundable.

Cancellations made more than 42 working days from the start of your course (EU Students only)

Should you wish to cancel your booking more than 42 days from the start of the course, you will be entitled to a full refund of the course fees paid, minus the £500 deposit which is non refundable. Should you wish to transfer to a course date in the future rather than cancel your booking outright, we will transfer your course deposit to that future date, you have six months from the original starting date to book. 

Cancellations made less than 42 working days from the start of your course (EU Students only)

Should you wish to cancel your booking less than 42 working days from the start of the course, we will relist your place for resale and try to find a replacement on your behalf. If we can resell your place, or you are able to provide a suitable replacement, we will refund your course fees (not including the deposit). If we are unable to resell your place and you cannot find a suitable replacement, you will not be entitled to a refund.

Cancellations after the course start date

If you cancel the course on or after the course start date, you will not be entitled to any refund, as we are not able to resell the place.

Cancellations by The Molecular Bar Academy

In the unlikely event of cancellation of a course by ourselves, we undertake to offer a suitable transfer to an alternative date or course, or a full refund (within 28 working days) of any course fees.
