b)      Educational programs are such educational events, learning materials or similar events and / or documents which are publicly offered by BSBI on their website and / or in other analogue or digital publications.

c)      These general terms and conditions of business may be amended upon changes in the legal situation, changes in the case law or changes in the economic situation.

Then the student has a reasonable time to reject the changes. If the deadline expires without success, then the amended version of the general terms and conditions shall apply.

7. Open Day offer

The €500 discount amount is awarded at the school's discretion. This discount will be applied to the total cost of the programme tuition fee when a student registers and attends our open day on the 25th July 2018 in our Berlin Campus or when the student holds an offer letter and pays the deposit by the 31st of July 2018.

The offer is valid for all our undergraduate and postgraduate programmes.

For the avoidance of doubt, the above offer will not be retrospective and students enrolled on upcoming intakes who have already made their payments will not qualify for a refund or discount of any kind.

Where the student's tuition fees are being paid by another organisation, the student must ensure that the paying organisation complies with the deadlines for payment.

All remaining fees (if any) must be paid before the end of the programme, with a pre-arranged payment plan. Students who fail to pay their remaining fees as required will relinquish their entitlement to the discount, and their remaining fee will be the original full fee.

The discount is not transferable to another student.

This offer can be used in conjunction with any other offer or promotion, including scholarships and/or bursaries.

Subject to your explicit prior approval, the school may feature your interview/photo/profile/story on the school’s websites and/or other school publications. We will always ask for your permission/approval prior to publishing this.
