Programme Detail


I confirm that I have completed the application process (online) for:


• The Lancaster University USA Trip to Boston & New York April 2018


Paying Fees Due


If my application is successful, I undertake to pay the fee by the due date communicated to me or to
provide, on demand, evidence that my fees will be paid by another person or organisation. I note
that if I do not pay the fee at the time due then my registration in the Programme will be ended.


Cancelation


If I choose to cancel my participation in the Programme I understand that costs reasonably incurred
on my behalf will be deducted from the fees I have paid before any refund is made. I understand
that the closer to the departure date I cancel the greater the likely costs incurred on my behalf e.g.
many flights become non-refundable once booked in a traveller’s name.
I understand that in exceptional circumstances the University may need to cancel the Programme. In
such cases the University’s liability will be limited to a full refund of fees I have paid. Examples of
exceptional circumstances are flood, landslide, outbreak of infectious disease, imposition of
quarantine, government or other official intervention, the threat or outbreak of war, riot, civil
commotion, the threat or an act of terrorism, loss, theft or damage to strategic equipment,
hijacking, nuclear disaster or other circumstance beyond the control of the University.


Variation of the Programme


I understand that the University makes all reasonable efforts to ensure that the information in the
Programme prospectus is correct at the time of publishing but that reasonable changes to the
Programme may be necessary, for example, the ordering of content delivery and methods of
teaching / assessment. The University Policy is described here:
