    Terms & Conditions

    What it means to study with Pembrokeshire College Online

    Pembrokeshire College Online offer a range of live online IGCSE and A-level courses.

    These courses follow the awarding body specifications to offer a complete study programme with teacher set and marked homework assignments throughout, which include feedback and support via the online learning platform.

    Timetabling

    Each subject includes timetabled live online lessons at a set time each week. Learners are expected to either attend these lessons live or watch the available recordings in a timely manner and submit any homework set in each lesson.

    Learners are expected to set their own study timetable to complete homework and prepare for upcoming lessons. Teachers will not chase learners to submit work. To receive the best support

    and results it is in the learner’s best interest to regularly attend lessons and complete homework.

    Plagiarism

    If work is submitted that is not 100% the learner’s, this could be considered plagiarised.

    Pembrokeshire College Online is able to refuse to use that work when predicting grades or calculating assessed grades.

    It is in the learner’s best interest to submit their own work. By agreeing to these Terms and Conditions the learner agrees to submit their own work unless agreed otherwise with the Pembrokeshire College Online Team.

    Breach of this term may result in further action taken with the Pembrokeshire College Quality Team.

    Age

    Pembrokeshire College Online learners can enrol at any age. If the learner is under 18 they must notify the Admin Team of a parent/guardian/teacher who can act as a mentor for the duration of their studies.

    Mentors receive a separate login to the online learning platform where they can view the learner’s progress and contact teachers directly (online). Mentors will also receive the notifications sent via the platform and copied in on administration emails from the Admin Team.

    Mentors will not have access to the course itself.

    Mentors are expected to support the learner with timetabling their studies, progress and exam booking and administration.

    Textbooks

    Included in the IGCSE and A-level courses are textbooks, which are provided to the learner as part of the enrolment procedure. If the learner is outside of the UK, we will arrange and pay for the shipment of these books, however some countries add an additional import tax, which is not covered by the course fee and is the recipient’s responsibility to pay.

    Additional Resources

    With some courses there may be additional resources or books suggested that are not included within the course fee.

    Exams

    Learners are expected to find an exam centre of their choosing, book and pay for their own exams. We strongly recommend finding a centre as close to home as possible.

    If the course includes a Non-Exam Assessment, Pembrokeshire College will enter the learner with the examination board, however, you have the option to complete your written exams at a centre of your choosing under the Transferred Candidate Option. The Transfer Entry fee is not included in your course fee

    UCAS

    Pembrokeshire College Online can support learners with subject references and predicted grades for standard January applications. Should the student require additional UCAS support, including for medical, veterinary, dentistry, or Oxbridge applications, the learner will be required to pay for the additional Pembrokeshire College UCAS Team support.

    For all UCAS requests the learner must complete at least 75% of their homework by the UCAS application deadline and the teacher(s) must be confident the work is the learner’s own submissions.

    Pembrokeshire College Online reserve the right to not provide a subject reference if we are not confident with the learner’s work.

    Practical Endorsements

    Pembrokeshire College Online and BioGrad work in partnership on a referral agreement. When you enrol to the practical endorsement, your details are passed onto BioGrad to secure a booking. Once the referral takes place the agreement is between the learner and BioGrad, dates and bookings arranged directly with BioGrad.

    Personal Data

    As a Pembrokeshire College Online learner, we will store some personal data in a secure location.

This information will be deleted from our system completely 3 years after the learner has completed the course.
