how to cancel a contract with a private school?

I go to a private cosmetic school in Zurich.
We do have a contract that says there is no way to quit. One can stop appearing in school, 100% fees must be paid though.

Another student and I want to cancel the contract because the school is a total mess. No good organisation, we do not follow the schedule (some stuff we didnt learn/ only saw for 3 min and thats all).

There are also many other reasons why we do want to quit.

We spoke to the owner about things we are not happy with. She promised it would get changed.
Nothing has changed.

Is it enough to write a letter with the reasons of quitting the school?

Or should we go to a lawyer?


Any help is appreciated

Re: how to cancel a contract with a private school?

Take the contract to a lawyer, they will:
1) Explain what type of contract it is
2) Make you aware of all terms and conditions
3) How/If you can cancel the contract
4) Answer any further questions

Talk to a lawyer. If you can prove that the course was misrepresented to you, for example, or they've failed to deliver what was promised, you may have grounds for breaking the contract.

Also, if you have some kind of liability insurance, there might be some basic legal advice benefit which is part of the coverage, and may be useful.

There are also very basic, free, legal advice services available offered by the courts .

None of us have this insurance.

I was afraid there was not a thing I could do to cancel the contract!
I will get in touch with a lawyer.
