GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS
The student, applicant, account/fee payer, lawful guardian and/or sponsor will herein collectively be referred to as the “Student”. Upon acceptance to Oxbridge Academy Online, the Student shall be jointly and separately liable for the fulfilment of all terms of the agreement.
Oxbridge Academy Online reserves the right to cancel a Student’s registration without having to give a reason for such cancellation. Students who are on monthly payment plans will not and cannot claim any refund if Oxbridge Academy Online cancels their registration, since the monthly payments are for the availability and/or delivery of items and tuition up to the end of the current month for which the Student has paid. If Oxbridge Academy Online chooses to cancel the registration of a Student who has paid for the course in advance, such a Student is not entitled to a refund.
In the event of any Student desiring to terminate his/her studies, for any reason whatsoever, this shall not absolve the Student from full liability for the payment of fees and any other charges and shall be dealt with in accordance to the cancellation and refund policy. The Student’s failure to make progress with his/her studies, or to complete a programme of study, for whatever reason, shall in no way entitle him/her to a reduction in fees, nor will it absolve him/her from full liability for the payment of fees and other charges.
No cancellation of this contract shall be of force or effect without written consent thereto by an authorised office of Oxbridge Academy Online.
The right to tuition and examinations is not transferable.
The Student hereby accepts that Oxbridge Academy Online shall have the right to vary the course syllabus at any time, without prior notification and without furnishing reasons. Oxbridge Academy Online shall have the right, at its sole discretion, to cancel any course or subject initially advertised and offered on the basis of insufficient demand.
In the event of the signatories to this agreement, other than Oxbridge Academy Online, having completed this form incorrectly or the payment details herein not being in accordance with the requirements of Oxbridge Academy Online, such incorrect information or payment details shall be deemed to have been amended so as to be in accordance with the requirements of Oxbridge Academy Online, without further notice.
Oxbridge Academy Online shall be deemed to include any division of Oxbridge Academy Online or any other juristic person to whom the rights and obligations of Oxbridge Academy Online, as contained herein, may be ceded and/or assigned.
