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.

The student remains bound by the school Terms and Conditions at all times.

The school reserves the right to withdraw the offer at any time.

8. Refunds policy

a) Once letters have been issued confirming full time status, no refunds or course transfers are permissible other than in the instance of visa refusal subject to clause 4 (c) and
(d) below.

b) Subject to section 4 (c) and (d), if a student’s visa application has been refused, then fees paid will be refunded less an administration charge of €150.00 (plus any courier and transfer charges) on production of the following documents:

(1) Copy of the visa refusal letter (APP200)

(2) Copy of the student’s passport showing both a photograph and signature; and

c) If a visa application is refused on the grounds that the student was unable to provide the necessary documents, demonstrate adequate financial support or for other reasons for which the student is accountable, BSBI accepts no responsibility to refund under section 4 (a) and (b). The student is held responsible if the visa application has been made late and their BSBI enrolment has already been processed.
