TERMS & CONDITIONS
In these terms and conditions, the word ‘School’ refers to Loxdale English Centre.
BOOKING ADULT ENGLISH LANGUAGE COURSES
A booking becomes binding for both student and School once the booking fee has been paid and it has been confirmed in writing by post, fax or e-mail to the School. The person who signs the booking form agrees to pay the course and accommodation fees as shown in price lists.
TO BOOK YOUR ENGLISH LANGUAGE COURSE
Fill in the booking form (either in paper format or from our website) and return it to the School.
The booking form must be signed by the person accepting responsibility for the payment of fees, and must be accompanied by the booking fee of £80, or, if it has been sent through a bank or Uni-Pay, you must send a copy of the transaction.
All fees must be paid in full, at least 21 days before arrival (or immediately in the case of late bookings). Our preferred method of paying is through Flywire.
Students are not insured by the School or by the homestay family, against illness, theft or loss of personal effects. We accept no responsibility if any of these occurrences, and therefore, strongly recommend that students take out personal insurance cover before travelling to Britain. Students on the Internship programme must show proof that they have personal liability insurance.
We do our best to check the quality of the service, but journeys arranged in hired or owned transport are made entirely at the students’ own risk and School can accept no liability for such journeys.
PAYMENT OF COURSE FEES
Please click on our website and click ‘Booking, Prices & application’. Payment can be made through Flywire by local bank transfer or credit card. It is a secure and simple way to pay.
With all such payments it is important to quote the student’s name and invoice number.
CANCELLATION & CURTAILMENTS
The School should be told as soon as possible of any cancellations. In the case of cancellation, the following charges will apply:
Cancellation 30 – 1 day before course start: 30% of course fee & 1 weeks’ accommodation
Non-appearance: 100% of course fee & 1 week’s accommodation
There can be no refund of fees once a course has started unless on medical grounds supported by a British doctors certificate. Accommodation payment will be refunded less one week.
LATE ARRIVAL AND NON-ATTENDANCE OF COURSES
Where students fail to attend a course that they have paid for, or arrive late without informing the School in advance, there can be no repayment of fees unless a valid medical certificate is shown.
Where a student wishes to postpone his/her course, the Loxdale English Centre office must receive written notice of this at least 14 days notice before the original course start. In these instances the payment already received can be held until the next start date and will be valid payment for this.
Unless otherwise agreed, accommodation is reserved from the Sunday before the course start date until the Sunday of the last week of the course. Only full weeks are calculated for payment purposes.
Students wishing to leave their accommodation for whatever reason, must give one full week’s notice or pay one week’s accommodation charge. The School acts as the middle-person between the student and the private home, or hotel/guesthouse. We reserve the right to change accommodation bookings when the need arises. We regret but we can only arrange accommodation for students attending a course at the School.
STUDENTS AGED UNDER 18
If a student aged 16 or 17 wants to study on an adult course at Loxdale, we need their parents to sign a Medical Parental Consent Form and a Curfew Consent Form. The student will have to respect the School curfew and safeguarding rules. The Medical and Parental Consent Form must also be filled in by the parents of any young learners wishing to study at Loxdale.
OVERNIGHT TRIPS FROM BRIGHTON
Students under the age of 18, wishing to stay away from their host family overnight, must have written permission from their parents or guardian. Such requests should be presented to the School, well in advance of the occasion with the address and contact details of the person hosting the student.
Loxdale English Centre is entitled to recruit international students who require visas under the Short Term Study Visa and 11 month Study Visa scheme through Accreditation UK.
As part of the school’s responsibilities we do the following:
1. Copy all students’ passports on arrival and make note of when the visa is due to expire.
2. Report any students who do not regularly attend class.
3. Point out to students that they are not eligible to claim for any state benefits or apply for work.
For further details see www.gov.uk/check-uk-visa
The School shall not be liable for any acts or omissions of any third parties including a Travel or Student Agency.
The School’s liability to the student shall, as far as is permitted by law, in no event exceed the course fees paid by the student in the previous 6 months prior to the claim.
The School shall not be liable for any indirect or consequential losses by the student.
These terms are governed by English law. Any disagreement in relation to these terms is only dealt with through the English courts.
RIGHTS OF THIRD PARTIES
The contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 is expressly excluded from these terms which means that no third party (a party other than the School and the student) shall be entitled to enforce or receive any benefit of any of these terms.
Students are awarded certificates for attending courses at the School. Where a student is consistently late, or misses lessons, no such certificate will be awarded. Students must attend a minimum of 85% of their course in order to qualify for a certificate.
PHOTOS AND PUBLICITY MATERIALS
If a student does not want their photo on School publicity material, they must let the School know within a week of starting their course. We cannot be held responsible for any photos in the public domain or social networks.
Students may take one week’s holiday per three months that they study at Loxdale. At least two week’s notice must be given in writing. Students must pay a 50% retainer for their accommodation during the holiday period.
The School retains the right to end, without notice, the course of any student who often misconducts him/herself in School or in the accommodation arranged by the School or is deemed to be a security risk to themselves or others or breaks UK laws.
There would be no refund of School fees in these instances but students would receive a refund of all but 1 week’s accommodation charges.
