Agreement

By accepting these Terms, you agree to be bound by the following regulations and publications which together form your contract with the Company:

Participation agreement

By accepting these Terms, you agree that:

E-Submission

The intellectual property in the assessments that you do will normally be owned by you (see Intellectual Property Rights Policy).

The Company may require you to submit certain pieces of work by way of E-Submission. The E-Submission system may use the Turnitin platform (or any other suitable platform or service), and work that you submit may be used by Turnitin (or such other platform or service as may be applicable) for the purpose of checking the originality both of your work and other students' work. By agreeing to this terms and conditions you agree that your work may be used in this way.

By making the Student Declaration you agree that it may be used in this way, and additionally that:

The submitted work is your own;

The sources of information and material you have used in the preparation of your work, including those obtained online, have been fully identified and properly acknowledged (as stipulated by the relevant writing style employed in your programme of study);

If there is suspicion of unfair practice the Company reserves the right to follow due process and investigate in accordance to the regulations of the partner University.

Criminal convictions

By accepting these Terms you are confirming that you have no unspent criminal convictions (excluding motoring offences). If this is not the case you must notify the Company prior to enrolment so that the Company can consider whether such convictions are compatible with participating in the Company's Services.

Student ID

The validation period of a Student ID is subject to the level of the programme that the student is enrolled (i.e. for undergraduate programmes the Student ID validity is for 5 years from the date of issue, and for postgraduate programmes the validity is for a period of 3 years). Students should pay the cost of the student ID which is set to the amount of 20 USD.

Fees and payment

It is your responsibility to make sure your tuition fees and other payments to the Company which relate to programmes you are studying, Services you are using, or accommodation are paid in full within the set deadlines. By accepting these Terms, you are bound by the Company's regulations on the payment of fees, and other expenses relating to the Services offered to you. No refunds are made for any payments made.

Despite the percentage of scholarship that a student may receive (100% and/or less), there are specific fees that are not covered by any percentage of scholarship. Such fees include the Application Fee, the Graduation Fees, the Transcript Fees and any other extra fees where commonly as a practice cannot be covered by the Scholarship (e.g. Graduation Ceremony Fees and/or Seminar Fees). The applicant and/or the student shall pay the foregoing since they are not subject to the scholarships. The retake fees are calculated according to the initial cost of the module and the percentage of the scholarship granted. If a student is awarded a 100% scholarship the retake fee will be 50% of the initial cost of the respected Module.

In order for you to receive your Award you must clear all your financial obligations to the Company including any administrative fees added upon completion of your programme of study.

When making any payment to the Company it is essential that you let us know what the payment relates to (for example tuition fees, application fees, etc.). This is to enable the Company to correctly allocate your payment against your various accounts. If you do not tell us what a particular payment relates to we will use reasonable efforts to contact you at the address, email address or telephone number you have provided to ascertain what the payment relates to. If we cannot contact you in this way within a reasonable period of time, we will automatically allocate your payment to the tuition fees.

Referral Programme

Referred Applicants/Students:

By accepting these Terms and Conditions, you agree that if your application is a product of the Referrals Programme, your Referrer shall be notified from time to time for the progress of your application. You agree and consent that your referrer shall receive from Unicaf specific data of yours (i.e. your name and email account) for the purposes of the Referral Programme.

Cancellation and refund policy

The purpose of this section is to provide guidance on when refunds of tuition fees will be made by the Company and how they will be calculated. This policy relates to the portion of the tuition fee that is paid directly by the student or by a private sponsor for studies relating to our online or blended learning programmes or short courses or other related Services.

As a general rule there are no refunds for any fees paid. Any refund of tuition fees and or reduction in tuition fees is at the sole and absolute discretion of the Company's Finance Office. In all cases, any other debt owing to the Company will be subtracted from any refund of fees if applicable.
