If our ability to provide the course and any accommodation is affected by an event outside our control then we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimise the effect of the event on the course and any accommodation. Provided we do this we will not be liable for any failure, delays or alterations to these services caused by the event, but if there is a risk of substantial delay you may contact us to end the contract and receive a refund for any of the course and accommodation you have paid for but not received. No compensation is payable if any aspect of the course has to be changed or altered due to such events. Events that that our outside our control include (but are not limited to) the following: war, terrorism, riot, natural or man-made disaster, pandemics, epidemics (including COVID-19), fire, adverse weather, technical problems, breakdowns, closure or congestion at airports or ports, industrial dispute, any law or any action taken by a government or public authority, including imposing a quarantine requirement.
In the event of a Government shutdown, all courses will be moved online, and students will be very welcome to stay in their accommodation and remain in the UK or return home and continue studying from there. If they do not wish to transfer to online courses, they will be offered a credit note valid for 2 years from their last day studying with us. No refund will be given for the course. If they return home the balance of their accommodation will be refunded.
