It explains who we are, how we will deliver the course to you, how you and we may change or end the agreement, what to do if there is a problem, and other important information.

E We are not officially affiliated with any medical school or university and our course, advice & guidance provided is no guarantee of a place at university.
3 Forming a contract between you and us
a If we accept your booking and a deposit or course fee is paid by you, a contract between you and us (referred to as ‘the agreement’ in this document) will come in to force, and these terms and conditions will start to apply, when we send you an email confirming that we have accepted the booking.
b If we cannot accept your booking based on accurate information you subsequently provide to us as part of the application process (the Assessment Form/Personal Statement), we will tell you this and endeavour to provide a suitable alternative product. If a suitable alternative product is not available, we will not charge you for the course.
c If you want to change the course you have a place on, you must contact us as shown in 2b. We will decide whether or not the change is possible.
4 Delivering the course
a We will deliver the course in line with the spirit of the advertised course on our website.
b We can make any changes to the course if:
- we need to do so to keep to any law or safety requirement that applies; or
- the change does not affect the nature or quality of the course in a significant way.
- we believe that changes to the course will result in a better experience for you.
- timetable or staff needs require changes to the course
c We will tell you about any changes we are making to the course.
d We will deliver the course using reasonable care and skill.
e If an event outside our control prevents us from delivering the course on time, we will tell you as soon as possible and let you know what we will do to minimise the effect of the delay.
5 Your obligations
a You must always keep to the most up-to-date student agreement on our websites at www.educationprojects.co.uk
b If you have any disability, restriction of movement, or medical or learning needs, you must tell us about this so we can make any reasonable adjustments necessary for you to make full use of the course.
c You accept that your age at the start of the course will be considered to be the age you are throughout the course, and your accommodation, meals and so on will be based on that age. You must apply for the course for which you are the correct age on Day One of the course; we will transfer your application to the appropriate equivalent if you apply for a course for which you are not the correct age.
d You must co-operate with us in all matters relating to the course.
e You must give us any information we reasonably need to deliver the course effectively. Not providing the information we reasonably need may impact our ability to provide the requested course and may result in you not being able to attend the course or the removal from the course.
6 Charges and payment
a The course fee and a breakdown of what is included in the course are set out on the course pages on the website. All course fees are collected by Medical Projects Ltd.
bi When booking a residential course, you must pay the deposit at the time of booking and the remaining balance payment in full no later than 90 days before the course starts. If you make your booking less than 90 days before the start of the course, you must pay the deposit at the time of booking and the remaining balance payment within 7 days.
bii When booking an online or in-person (excluding residential) course, you must pay the full course fee at the time of booking.
c The course fee does not cover:
- travel fees;
- visa fees;
- personal items such as souvenirs; or

You are responsible for paying these.
d You are responsible for all costs relating to your baggage and personal belongings.

f You must pay all amounts due to us in full without taking off any amount, even if we owe you any amount, or you do not think the full amount is correct or fair, (except for any deduction required by law). We may, without limiting any of our rights, take any amount you owe us off any amount we owe you. This is called set-off.
g We will hold you responsible for any damage to the accommodation or equipment, except for reasonable wear and tear that can be expected.
h You have 14 calendar days to cancel the contract under the Consumer Contracts Regulations (Consumer Credit Act 1974) with full reimbursement, unless you have started the course. The cooling-off period starts the day after you agree to go ahead with the service.
7 Limit of our liability
This clause is important because it states our liability if we are unable to run a course or if there are any injuries sustained whilst on our course. We take great care to protect students at all times but these terms protect you and the company.
a If we cannot meet any of our obligations under the agreement, or are delayed in meeting them, because of:
- something you have done or failed to do; or
- something you have failed to tell us; or
- you not meeting any of your obligations under the agreement;
we will not be liable for any losses you suffer as a result.
b Except where the circumstances in 7e below apply, we are not responsible for any loss or damage that:
- could not be predicted or expected; or
- you or we knew might happen when the agreement came into force.
c Except where the circumstances in 7e below apply, we will not be liable to you for any indirect loss arising under or in connection with the agreement.
d Except where the circumstances in 7e below apply, our total liability to you (if any) under or in connection with the agreement will be limited to the total amount you have paid under the agreement.
e Nothing in the agreement will limit or remove any liability which cannot be limited or excluded under any law that applies, or our liability for:
- death or personal injury caused only by our negligence, or the negligence of our employees only
- fraud or fraudulent statements, assurances, promises or claims.
f This clause 7 will continue to apply after the agreement ends for any reason.
