UK Pre-university and Foundation programmes

Last updated March 2016

Kings reserves the right to change prices/course timetables etc. at any time prior to registration and to make additions or amendments to these terms and conditions by giving one month’s written notice to all affected parties.

Offer of a place

This includes a study plan outlining the most appropriate course for your academic goals based on your academic ability and English language level and will detail costs for tuition and your selected accommodation option.

Acceptance of a place

To accept your place you will need to make an Acceptance Payment and return a signed copy of our Acceptance Forms. Your place on the course and in homestay accommodation is not held until these are received. It does not hold a room in residence. To secure a place in residence a minimum of one full terms fees is required.

The Acceptance Payment comprises:

Registration Fee £75, Advance Fee £2000 (deducted from first payment), Refundable Deposit £1000 (refunded to the fee payer at the end of the course minus any sundry charges) and the relevant insurance fee. If you already have insurance, please include proof of cover with your acceptance payment. If you are a visa national, then there will be a charge of £21 for a Certificate of Acceptance to Study (CAS).

Visa documentation

Once we have received your Acceptance Payment and a full set of application documents we will provide all relevant visa documentation including a CAS. Please advise us as soon as your visa is granted.

Payment of fees

All fees are due one month prior to the start of your course. Your place may be at risk if we do not receive payment on time. Details of how to pay are included on our invoices and booking confirmations. Payment by termly installment is available on request for courses of a minimum of 3 terms. The first two terms are payable 4 weeks prior to the start of the first term and the third term is payable prior to the start of the second term. Fees generally increase by inflation annually so payments by installment may be subject to fee increases. In the event of late payment a monthly interest charge of 2% will be applied. You will not be allowed to attend classes as long as fees are outstanding. You may be required to leave the course.

Cancellation

Due to visa refusal
The Advance Fees and Deposit (but not fees for CAS and Registration) will be refunded to the fee payer on production of the visa refusal letter. Any accommodation costs incurred after the beginning of the course while waiting for a decision on a visa application will be deducted from the refundable deposit. No refunds are given if the visa application was refused because it was not considered to be genuine.

For any other reason more than 4 weeks prior to the start of the course
The refundable deposit will be refunded.

For any other reason less than 4 weeks before the start of the course
A full term’s tuition and accommodation fees will be retained and any balance refunded. To avoid cancellation fees, a full term’s notice must be given in writing to the Principal of the College. For example, if your course finishes in June and you wish to cancel the Summer Term, you will need to notify us of this before the start of the January term to avoid cancellation fees. We are obliged to notify UKVI if a student holding a current UK visa cancels a course at one of our Colleges. We strongly recommend you have an insurance policy in place which covers cancellation fees.

Refunds

Bank charges: all refunds are paid minus any bank charges.
Visa refusal: Advance fees and Deposit refunded to the fee payer on receipt of a visa refusal letter.
Tuition Fees: any fees paid in excess of one term refunded to the fee payer if notice has been given to cancel/withdraw.
Deposits: refunded to the fee payer minus deductions for any disbursements or damages within 21 days after student’s departure.
Late arrivals: no refunds or deductions for tuition or accommodation for students who arrive after the start of term.
Exclusions: no refunds are given for students excluded from school for disciplinary reasons.
Insurance: no refunds are given.

Withdrawal

A full term’s notice in writing to the Principal is required to withdraw from a course or accommodation after it has started. Any refunds are given after a term’s tuition fees are deducted as a cancellation charge in lieu of notice.

Academic decisions

The Colleges reserve the right to determine the best course of study for any student and to exclude from class any student who, for reasons of ability or performance is not qualified to enter or remain in that class. Students will not be allowed to start any part of their study plan for which they have not reached the minimum entry requirement.

Discipline

If your work, attendance or conduct is unsatisfactory, you will be subject to the College’s disciplinary procedures. These procedures may lead ultimately to exclusion. In the event of exclusion, fees are not refunded. Attendance is compulsory for all students and is a condition of a UK visa. Non attendance of visa nationals is reported to UKVI.

Accommodation

Homestay:
Kings acts solely as agents (and not as principals) in the arranging and providing of homestay accommodation for students. Prices are per week (7 nights). No refund is given for early departure but a charge will be made for any extra nights.
Notice to withdraw from homestay or residence is one term. Students who move out without the proper notice period will be charged one term’s fees in lieu of notice.
Private accommodation:
Students under 18 wishing to move into private accommodation must seek approval from the Principal and provide written consent from parents.
Vacation accommodation is subject to availability, at an extra charge, usually only in homestay. Homestay students may have a change of family for the vacation.

Guardianship

This is a legal requirement for all students under 16. At Kings it is a minimum requirement until the end of the term in which the student becomes 16. However if we believe that a student will be adversely affected by the lack of a guardian we may insist that parents retain a UK based guardian for longer than the legal requirement.

Personal, Social, Health Education for under 16s

Personal, Social, and Health Education for under 16s is a compulsory part of the National Curriculum in the UK and your child/ward will receive sex education as a part of their GCSE studies unless you request in writing to the principal that you do not wish your child/ward to participate in these lessons.

Consent for activities for under 18s

The trips and activities covered by this consent include:
all term-time educational visits/trips and adventure activities, and off-site leisure and sporting fixtures whether organised by Kings or by a third party provider (including residential trips), which take place during the term of the course but may occur during or outside usual teaching hours or at weekends.
We will send you information about any trip or activity before it takes place if we believe that it presents an unusually high risk. We shall take a common sense and proportionate approach to any risks posed by an out of school activity. We shall ensure that any providers of activities or transport are appropriately licensed (under such legislation as the Adventure Activities Licensing Regulations 2004). You can, if you wish, tell the school that you do not want your child to take part in any particular school trip or activity. Details of the type of activities and trips we consider covered by this consent are set out in our literature and brochures and can be viewed on our website.

Liability

Kings Education will not be liable under any circumstances for any failure to provide services whatsoever if that failure is caused directly or indirectly by industrial action or by circumstances beyond the College’s control. Any damage caused by a student to College property, to the homestay property or to a residence, whether intentional or accidental will be charged to the students responsible. Students in residential accommodation are jointly and severally liable for shared facilities and the College reserves the right to recover costs or damage and exceptional cleaning.

Insurance

All Kings’ students must have appropriate accident and medical insurance. Insurance to cover personal property, breakages, loss, damage and cancellation fees is advised. Kings recommend Endsleigh Insurance which will be arranged for you on receipt of your Acceptance Payment unless proof of alternative cover is provided.

Publicity materials

Permission is given by the student, their parents or guardian with acceptance of these terms and conditions for the use of student’s results, comments, opinions, images/video of students in Kings promotional materials and social media sites.

8. Academic Decisions

Kings and/or Pine Manor reserves the right to determine the best study plan for any student and to exclude from class any student who, for reasons of performance or ability, is not qualified to enter or remain in that class. For Undergraduate/ Graduate Preparation, students are accepted into a study plan with understanding that successful completion of the study plan is contingent on satisfactory attendance and attainment of specified grades.

Students who do not meet the criteria for successful completion will not be allowed to proceed with their original study plan. Students may be offered alternative study options, including, but not limited to, retaking their course, and/or a change in their study plan. A change in study plan may involve additional time and cost with regard to tuition and accommodation fees.

Students are accepted in good faith into the Kings program on the basis that the certification they provide meets the admissions criteria. If, however, the results from assessments upon arrival indicate that a student’s level of English or academic proficiency is significantly different than the one claimed and is lower than the one required for their program, then the student will be formally advised of the results and of applicable options. A change in study plan may involve additional time and cost with regard to tuition and accommodation fees.

A student, either individually or through his/her representative, who has submitted any documentation or certification to meet the admissions criteria which is later found to have been falsified is subject to immediate expulsion from the Kings program.

8. Academic Decisions

Kings and/or Rider reserves the right to determine the best study plan for any student and to exclude from class any student who, for reasons of performance or ability, is not qualified to enter or remain in that class. For Undergraduate/Graduate Preparation, students are accepted into a study plan with understanding that successful completion of the study plan is contingent on satisfactory attendance and attainment of specified grades.

Students who do not meet the criteria for successful completion will not be allowed to proceed with their original study plan. Students may be offered alternative study options, including, but not limited to, retaking their course, and/or a change in their study plan. A change in study plan may involve additional time and cost with regard to tuition and accommodation fees.

Students are accepted in good faith into the Kings program on the basis that the certification they provide meets the admissions criteria. If, however, the results from assessments upon arrival indicate that a student’s level of English or academic proficiency is significantly different than the one claimed and is lower than the one required for their program, then the student will be formally advised of the results and of applicable options. A change in study plan may involve additional time and cost with regard to tuition and accommodation fees.

A student, either individually or through his/her representative, who has submitted any documentation or certification to meet the admissions criteria which is later found to have been falsified is subject to immediate expulsion from the Kings program.

9. Discipline

If your work, attendance, or conduct is unsatisfactory you will be subject to Kings and/or Rider disciplinary procedures. These procedures may lead ultimately to suspension or expulsion. Travel and other costs incurred as a result of suspension or expulsion must be met by the student or student's guardian.

8. Academic decisions

Kings and/or Canisius reserves the right to determine the best study plan for any student and to exclude from class any student who, for reasons of performance or ability, is not qualified to enter or remain in that class. For Undergraduate/ Graduate Preparation, students are accepted into a study plan with understanding that successful completion of the study plan is contingent on satisfactory attendance and attainment of specified grades.

Students who do not meet the criteria for successful completion will not be allowed to proceed with their original study plan. Students may be offered alternative study options, including, but not limited to, retaking their course, and/or a change in their study plan. A change in study plan may involve additional time and cost with regard to tuition and accommodation fees.

Students are accepted in good faith into the Kings program on the basis that the certification they provide meets the admissions criteria. If, however, the results from assessments upon arrival indicate that a student’s level of English or academic proficiency is significantly different than the one claimed and is lower than the one required for their program, then the student will be formally advised of the results and of applicable options. A change in study plan may involve additional time and cost with regard to tuition and accommodation fees.

A student, either individually or through his/her representative, who has submitted any documentation or certification to meet the admissions criteria which is later found to have been falsified is subject to immediate expulsion from the Kings program.

9. Discipline

If your work, attendance, or conduct is unsatisfactory you will be subject to Kings and/or Canisius disciplinary procedures. These procedures may lead ultimately to suspension or expulsion. Travel and other costs incurred as a result of suspension or expulsion must be met by the student or student’s guardian.
