Terms and Conditions
Application and payment deadlines
The application deadline is 15 June 2017, but applications may still be accepted after this date if places are available.
Places on the summer school and accommodation options are filled on a first come, first served basis, so early application is strongly advised.
To reserve a place on the summer school, and any accommodation chosen, a non-refundable deposit must be paid. The deposit is £400 for those attending for the full two weeks, and £200 for those attending for just one week.
The balance of the summer school fees is due by 30 June 2017. Failure to pay the balance by this date may result in the summer school place being offered to another applicant.
Cancellation and refund policy
If an applicant must cancel their place on the summer school, the following refunds shall be offered:
A full refund (excluding the non-refundable deposit) if the place is cancelled by 30 June 2017
A 50% refund (excluding the non-refundable deposit) if the place is cancelled by 13 July
A 25% refund (excluding the non-refundable deposit) if the place is cancelled by 28 July
After 28 July 2017 no refund shall be made
Academic courses and social programme
The summer school will endeavour to provide the academic courses and social programme as described on the website. In the unlikely event that an instructor has to withdraw their course due to illness or other exceptional reason, the summer school will seek to offer a replacement course in the same subject area. In the unlikely event that, for reasons beyond its control, the summer school is unable to provide elements of the social programme as described, suitable alternative activities shall be offered.
The College is unable to accept liability for any loss or damage to personal property.
All applicants are strongly advised to take out sufficient travel and medical insurance to cover the duration of the summer school, together with any journey to or from the UK. They should also take out vacation cancellation insurance.
In submitting an application form to the Lifelong Learning Summer School, applicants agree to abide by the College rules.
