I consent to the collection, use and disclosure of my personal information in accordance with the Privacy Notice above.

I understand confirmation of course enrolment will be subject to viable numbers.

I understand a refund of tuition fees may only be made in accordance with the refund policy.

I understand that after passing the date where I am no longer eligible for a refund, I cannot claim a discount for credit transfers.

I agree that all fees incurred are to be paid in full, and should I default in full or in part, the total value of outstanding fees may be passed on to a Collection Agency for further action and costs may be added to outstanding fees, and my enrolment may be cancelled.

I understand that I will not be eligible for my Testamur or Statement of Attainment for this course until all fees are paid.

I declare that the information I have provided, to the best of my knowledge, is true and correct.
