2. Payment of Course Fees
The most cost effective way to pay for your course is to pay in full in advance of the start date. As part of a payment plan we may also offer you the option to reserve your place with a deposit to be followed by a balance payment. If you choose to pay in this way, then the balance of your course fee will be deducted automatically from your nominated account 28 days after your course start date as displayed on your Enrolment form. There is a surcharge for this option. Paypal is an automated system that will automatically collect your balancing payment. This agreement is set up for you when you enrol on your course and pay your deposit. Please note that payment via Paypal is subject to the terms and conditions you agree with Paypal and Quantize Courses shall have no liability in relation to any dispute regarding such agreement. If you wish to arrange instalment payments via another method (eg. Standing Order or Cheque) then please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that if balance or instalment payments are not received on the due dates, then access to your course materials will be suspended until such time as the fees owing have been paid.
3. Withdrawal From Your Course
Students are asked to make sure they are booked onto the correct course for their ability. If you need to withdraw from your course then you must notify us in writing at least 7 days before the commencement date, stating the reasons for your withdrawal. A “course” is defined as one or more course modules booked in a single enrolment. Refunds may be given only if written notice is received within the required time period. Please note that if you pay the course fees in full, you can only apply for a refund of the full fee (less deposit) before the 7 day notice period. If you withdraw from the course when this notice period has elapsed, then the fees are non-refundable. If you opt to pay in instalments it is still necessary to give 7 days’ notice if you wish to withdraw. If you do not do so, then your instalments will remain payable in the normal manner. If you have deferred your course then the 7 day notice period is calculated from your original start date. For the avoidance of doubt, you cannot defer a course and then later decide to withdraw to avoid the 7 day notice period.
4. Amendments to Course Schedule
Upon booking your course you will be sent a course schedule via email. Students who wish to make changes to their schedule must apply in writing at least 14 days before any change they wish to make. No changes can be made after this point.
5. Course Timetable
Quantize Courses reserves the right to make changes to the dates, times, prices, tutors and contents of the courses without prior notice.
6. Student Project Deadlines and Tutor Feedback Videos
Students must submit their projects to the Quantize drop box as detailed in their welcome pack on or before their project deadline or they will not receive a tutor video feedback for that project. The project deadlines will be detailed in the students enrolment email sent to them on the start date of their course. Quantize Courses will not be liable to offer either a full or partial refund for missed feedbacks or alter a students schedule in any way.
7. Student Conduct
We expect all students to treat the staff due respect. Quantize Courses reserves the right to exclude or expel any student who violates this condition.
8. Grievance Procedure
If a student has a complaint or grievance about any aspect of their course, it should be raised with the admissions team via email at the earliest opportunity. Quantize Courses will make every effort to deal with complaints sympathetically.
