Enrolment Terms & Conditions
Variation/cancellation of courses
The College reserves the right to make alterations to courses, tutors, fees or venues without prior notice provided such alterations shall not substantially affect the course content or qualification and such alterations shall, at best, only entitle the participant to reimbursement of course fees paid.
The College reserves the right to cancel or reschedule courses at their discretion if in the opinion of the College there are insufficient enrolments or attendees. In such cases the participant shall be offered transfer to an alternative course.
If not appropriate/acceptable a full refund of course fees will be made within fifteen College working days of the cancellation or the student declining the course rescheduling. In such cases the College liability shall be restricted to a reimbursement of any fees paid to the College.
In the event of cancellation of courses or classes for a reason outside the control of the College, the College shall be under no obligation to provide any reimbursement. In the event of any reimbursement being made, it shall be a gratuitous payment made without obligation or liability.
You must be aged 16 or over to enrol on our Cirencester College Adult & Community courses.
If you cannot attend the first session of your course but wish to continue on the programme, you should inform the College immediately by writing to the Student Advice Centre. If you fail to do so we reserve the right to offer your place to an applicant on our waiting list. The College reserves the right to ask a student to leave for reasons of unacceptable behaviour or gross misconduct.

Liability and Insurance
The College shall not be liable for any loss or damage suffered by a student in connection with the provision of any course or service except in the case of death, personal injury or loss suffered as a result of the College’s negligence.
The College shall not be liable to the student for any delay in performing, or any failure to perform, any of the College’s obligations, if the delay or failure was due to any cause beyond the College’s reasonable control.
The College does not insure students’ personal belongings and students are responsible for making appropriate provision in respect of insurance arrangements to protect their property and person.
Upon signing the College’s enrolment form the student enters into a legally binding contract with the Cirencester College. You have the right to cancel your enrolment at no cost within seven days of receipt of your application by the College. Such cancellation must be in writing to the Manager, Student Advice Centre, Cirencester College, Avon Street, Cirencester BA1 1UP. In the event of cancellation under this clause, reimbursement of any fees paid will be made in full within fifteen College working days of receipt of the cancellation request by the College.
Access to information
Information about College activities is generally available for public inspection on request. Details of documents available for inspection can be obtained from the Student Advice Centre, the Learning Centre or from the Director of Corporate Administration.
Data Protection Act 1998
The College collects and processes information about students to make admissions decisions, to provide education and training and for administrative, health, safety and welfare and security reasons. Some of the data about you may, because of its nature, be classified as ‘Sensitive Personal Data’ within the meaning of the Data Protection Act 1998.
Since we cannot operate the College effectively without processing this information we need you to sign the ‘Student Data Processing’ clause on the enrolment form. If you do not do so we will be unable to offer you a place on a course and may withdraw any offer already made.
If you require further information, please contact the Student Advice Centre in the Roper Building.
