Missed Lectures
Lectures missed in the year for which registration has been made (or equivalent lectures if the titles are not available) may be attended in the following year. Two such days (which will be the equivalent to 4 sessions if attending missed sessions) may be attended without additional charge but thereafter a fee of £80 will apply for each additional day.
Application acceptance
The application form and the terms and conditions must be completed and signed when applying.
If you are claiming undergraduate status, a copy of the certifying document letter from your parent institution is required and must accompany the application form.
Fees and Payment
The full payment of the course is to be made and cleared before attending the first session of the academic year. The Faculty accepts cheques, bank transfers and net funds bank transfers, all in sterling: any additional banking costs incurred by other currencies must be borne by the student.
Examination fees
The Faculty has a limited number of bursaries to offer undergraduates toward the examination fees; these are available on a first-come first-served basis. Applications should be made in writing to the Faculty Coordinator. Please note that if the Faculty offers a bursary, this must be used towards the fees for the examination that must be taken in the same year as the Course. However, when a student wishes to exercise the option to take the exam at a later date then the bursary may not be used and the student will need to pay the full exam fee.
Cancellations and refunds
Cancellations must be made in writing.
Cancellations received more than 14 days before the first day of the course will receive a full refund. Later cancellations will incur an administrative fee of £25.00, which will be deducted from the fee to be refunded.  
Students withdrawing from the course will be charged £80 per day or part day attended plus an administration fee of £25.00.
Changing Course
Requests from students wishing to change to another course within 4 weeks of the start of the course for which they have registered will be considered on a case by case basis.  The outcome will depend in part upon whether there is a place available on the other course. 
Attendance Requirement
Students will need to attend at least 70% of the course; the lectures are one hour long and count per session. Attendance is recorded using the signing-in sheets that are provided on each course day.
N.B.  The regulations governing the respective Diploma examinations require that a course completion letter signed by the Course Director is obtained before entry to the examination can be approved – see the relevant Guide to the Diploma, available to download from the Examination section of the web site.
