Disclaimer

Bridgwater College makes all reasonable efforts to deliver the courses and other services and facilities in the way described on the website. It will provide students with the tuition and learning support and other services and facilities it describes with reasonable care and skill.

However, the College shall be entitled if it reasonably considers it to be necessary (including in order to manage its resources and pursue its policy of continuous improvement appropriately):

  • To alter the timetable, location, number of classes and method of delivery of courses, provided such alterations are reasonable
  • To make reasonable variations to the content of courses
  • To suspend or discontinue courses (for example, because a key member of staff is unwell or leaves the College)
  • To make changes to its regulations, policies and procedures which the College reasonably considers necessary. Such changes if significant will normally come into force at the beginning of the following academic year, and if fundamental to the course will normally come into force with effect from the next cohort of students.

In the unlikely event that the College discontinues or does not provide a course or changes it significantly before it begins:

  • The College will tell relevant individuals at the earliest possible opportunity
  • An individual will be entitled to withdraw his or her application by telling the College in writing within a reasonable time of being informed of the change
  • The College will make an appropriate refund of tuition fees and deposits paid

The College will make available to students such learning support and other services and facilities as it considers appropriate, but may vary what it provides from time to time.

Upon acceptance by an applicant of an offer of a place at the College, the relationship between the applicant and the College becomes contractual.
