  5. Students are required to attend all lectures, take all tests and submit assignments set by their tutors. Failure to adhere to these guidelines/deadlines may render the student liable to certain penalties such as re-sit, which may in turn affect the student’s duration of studies, fees, completion etc.

Bookings and Payments: all students must complete the application form provided by KBM BSE specifying the course/courses chosen, the accommodation and or other services needed and they must provide any other important information regarding their health or any specific medical condition known by the student (food allergies, illnesses, specific needs for medication etc.). KBM BSE requests a deposit of 250 pounds for the course and of 250 pounds for the accommodation. The remaining total amount should be paid no later than 14 days prior to the course start date.

  14. Refunds, cancellation fees, changes: KBM BSE reserves the right to retain all fees paid, should the student cancel their course within 2 weeks of the course’s start date.

  15. After the course has started, the student must give 10 days’ written notice to the relevant school Principal of changes to or cancellation of a course. A cancellation fee equivalent to 1 week’s course fees will be charged. Refunds cannot be made for non-attendance, absence due to illness or any other cause.

    If a student wishes to be absent from the course for 1 or 2 weeks for the purposes of taking a holiday the student must give the relevant school Principal at least 2 weeks’ notice in writing.

    If a student wishes to exchange his/her original choice of course for one of greater value the student must pay the difference between the two at the time of requesting the upgrade.

    Any refund or other money due when a course is changed or cancelled, or a holiday taken, will be transferred to the bank account from which the payment originated at the end of the booked course.

    Money due in relation to a course booked by the student will therefore be returned to the student.

    If a student is denied a student visa or a study permit and KBM BSE is provided with a copy of the rejection letter on or before the first booked day of classes, KBM BSE will not refund the amount paid to KBM BSE.

    KBM BSE reserves the right to cancel a course, or make changes to course arrangements, without liability, if forced to do so for reasons beyond its control. If this happened, KBM BSE would seek to offer alternative arrangements, dates or venues.

    Where payments are made to external operators, such as for tours or accommodation, the terms and conditions of the external operators apply.

    If KBM BSE cancelled a course booked and paid for by the student in accordance with these terms other than for reasons beyond its control, and did not offer an alternative reasonably acceptable to the student, KBM BSE would pay compensation as follows:

    Important

    Where the cancellation is before the start of the course, compensation equal to the deposit paid by the student

    Where the cancellation is after the start of the course, compensation equal to one week's fees.

    Where the booking involves external operators for any of the activities, such as accommodation or transfers, the student becomes subject to their terms and conditions in regards to cancellations and refunds, KBM BSE will provide the student with General Terms and Conditions from other external operators in the booking phase so the student is aware of all conditions and cancellation policies.

  16. Insurance:Students must have adequate health, accident and travel insurance while attending any of our programme. KBM BSE can request to review a copy of the insurance.

  17. Force Majeure:KBM BSE is not liable in the event of the school being unable to supply services as per its obligations, if the failure is occasioned by any cause beyond KBM BSE’s reasonable control. Refund will not be made in such circumstances such as war, threat of war, civil strife, unusually adverse weather conditions, nuclear disaster etc.
