Terms and Conditions
The conditions below are the terms of contract between the student and Bloomsbury International (UK) Ltd.
To confirm a reservation for the course/accommodation, the following deposits are required:
• 150 GBP for the course (non-refundable and non-transferable). Full course fees must be paid by all visa applicants
• 50 GBP registration fee
• one week’s accommodation fee (non-refundable and non-transferable)
• 50 GBP accommodation arrangement fee
No course or accommodation confirmations or visa documentation will be sent until the deposit(s) has/have been received.
- Registration Fee
A £50 registration fee is charged for any new enrolment. Students wishing to re-enrol within one year of the start date of their first course will not be charged the registration fee again.
Full payment must be received no later than two weeks prior to the course start or accommodation arrival date. Please allow 5 working days for bank transfers and ensure all bank charges have been paid. We require 5 days for cheques to clear from when we receive them. Bloomsbury International reserves the right to cancel the reservation if full payment is not received by this time. Students will not be allowed to start the course unless full payment has been received. All payments must be made in pounds sterling.
Any cancellations must be received in writing at least two weeks before the start date. Fees paid, less the non refundable deposit(s), will be returned to the person or agency that paid the school for the course. You may transfer your deposits to another course within one year of the cancellation date. There will be no refunds for cancellations received less than 14 days before the course begins.
- Cancellation due to a visa application refusal
In the event of visa refusal, the original refusal letter from the British authorities must be provided before any refund can be considered. If a refund is to be made, fees paid, less the non-refundable deposit(s), will be returned to the person or agency that paid the school for the course.
If a visa is refused on criminal grounds or as a result of giving false or misleading information, no refund will be made, except in extenuating circumstances which will be taken into consideration at Bloomsbury International’s discretion. In all cases of extenuating circumstances, proof must be provided.
- One-to-one cancellations and changes
For cancellations please refer to paragraph 4 above.
Changes to one-to-one lessons must be made at least 48 hours in advance. Any changes made between 48 hours and 2 weeks prior to your one-to-one lesson will incur a 25 GBP charge.
There are no refunds of tuition fees after arrival or compensation for missed lessons in any circumstances once your course has started, except in extenuating circumstances which will be taken into consideration at Bloomsbury International's discretion. In all cases of extenuating circumstances, proof must be provided. In the event of a refund being granted it will only be made at the original end date of the course to the person or agency that paid the school for the course.
As school fees are not refundable or transferable you are strongly advised to take out comprehensive insurance which covers reimbursement of your fees. Please contact the school for details/premiums and for our recommended partners who specialize in student travel insurance. The insurance should also cover visits to the GP, and general health problems for non EU students.
- Administration Charge
Once a student has started his/her course any changes to the course or accommodation have an administration charge of £25 which must be paid before the change is processed. Any holiday requests made outside the two weeks’ notice period will also incur the £25 administration charge.
All efforts will be made to meet your accommodation requests. The school reserves the right, however, to place you in an alternative type to the same standard paid for. Requests to change or cancel accommodation must be received with two weeks’ notice in writing. For changes to your accommodation the administration charge of £25 will apply in addition to the difference in fees for the new accommodation. If you cancel your accommodation you will be refunded the outstanding fees less the amount for two weeks’ accommodation and the £25 administration charge.
All students staying in the Bloomsbury Student Residences must adhere to the House Rules. Breach of these rules will result in extra charges to you to cover any repairs.
- ID on Arrival
Upon arrival, an appropriate ID will be required including visa page if applicable and a copy taken for our records. All information will be stored in accordance with the Data Protection Act.
There are no fee reductions for public holidays or compensation for missed lessons. You are allowed a holiday period in accordance with your course duration. A maximum of 4 weeks may be taken at any one time. Two weeks’ notice must be given in writing for holiday requests otherwise an administration charge of £25 will be made.Course length in weeks8-1011-1415-2021-2829-3233-3637-4041+
