The College makes all reasonable efforts to ensure that the contents this website are accurate and that programmes of study and other services and facilities are delivered in the way described. The College will provide students with the tuition, learning support and other services and facilities it describes with reasonable care and skill. However, the College shall be entitled, if it reasonably considers it to be necessary (including in order to manage its resources and pursue its policy of continuous improvement appropriately):
- to alter the timetable, location, number of classes and method of delivery of programmes of study, provided such alterations are reasonable;
- to make reasonable variations to the content and syllabus of programmes of study (including in relation to placements);
- to suspend or discontinue programmes of study;
- to make changes to its regulations, policies and procedures which the College reasonably considers necessary;
- not to provide programmes of study or to combine them with others if the College reasonably considers this to be necessary (for example, because too few students apply to join the programme for it to be viable).
In the unlikely event that the College discontinues or does not provide a programme of study or changes it significantly before it begins:
- the college will inform relevant individuals as soon as reasonably practical;
- an individual will be entitled to withdraw his or her application within 14 days of being informed of the change;
- for those individuals that are either enrolled on a course which is discontinued or withdrawn their application under paragraph 2 above, the College will make an appropriate refund of tuition fees and deposits paid.
Upon acceptance by an applicant of an offer of a place at the College, the relationship between the applicant and the College becomes contractual. In entering into that contract, neither the student nor the College intends that any of the terms of the contract will be enforceable by virtue of the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 by any person not a party to it.
The College has a disciplinary procedure which is available in the student handbook and on the intranet. The College reserves the right to withdraw any offer of a place if information becomes available which has not been declared in this application form.
The College will not be liable to you for any representations or descriptions in this form, or in any other College documents and publications including website publications, and/or made to you verbally, unless and to the extent confirmed in the terms as outlined above. The College does not exclude any liability which it would be unlawful to exclude.
The College will not be liable to you in any manner whatsoever for any failure or delay, or for the consequences of any failure or delay, in performance of any contract with you if it is due to any event beyond our reasonable control including, without limitation, strikes, lockouts or other industrial action or disputes (whether involving our workforce or any other party), acts of God, pandemic, quarantine or widespread illness (whether affecting our staff and/or student body or otherwise), governmental requisitioning, emergency planning or provision, war, protests, fire, flood, storm, tempest, explosion, an actual, suspected or threatened act of terrorism, riot, civil commotion, national emergencies, breakdown of plant or machinery, or default of suppliers or sub-contractors.
