Class schedule

Our classes are packed with exciting content, projects and activities! In order to benefit completely from the course, for your convenience and that of others, kindly keep the following points in mind::

  • Timings – Classes start at 10am sharp! Please do factor in all possible reasons for delay and ensure you arrive at least 10 minutes before.

  • Lunch – A one hour lunch break is included in the schedule. Lunch will not be provided by BHARCS. However, most students opt to order as a group on Swiggy. We will confirm to you, a few days before, on what the ordering in options around the venue are. We will try to arrange for a microwave at the venue, if possible. 

  • Pet Stretches – Every hour, there will be a short break for the dogs to stretch at the venue. Meanwhile, you are welcome to help yourselves to tea or coffee.

  • Q&A – We will aim to finish the class by 6pm each day and there will be a Q&A session within it. There can be additional Q&A after classes end.

  • Missed Classes – If students miss classes for genuinely unavoidable reasons, they can reserve the next available slot in future batches. However, seats cannot be guaranteed and unfortunately BHARCS does not provide refunds.

Venue

This is the new model of classes. Our venue is no longer a fixed one. We will be holding the classes at different venues that host us. Please contact our office to get the exact address of the venue your class is being held at. Ensure that you have done this early enough so that you can refer to maps and find out exactly where you need to be. Do not arrive late for the first day of class.
