7. Visas
7.1 We recommend you contact the Embassy in your own country to check visa requirements before you book.
7.2 If you cannot attend because you have not obtained a visa to enter the UK, no refund will be offered.

8. Certificates
8.1 On completion of a non-credit bearing course, UWE may provide you with a certificate of attendance. The name given on the booking form will be the one that appears on the certificate. It is not feasible to examine and grade your ability of work or depth of knowledge, therefore the certificate of attendance is not a qualification.
8.2 If you do not receive your certificate at the end of the course for reasons that we are responsible for, we will post certificates free of charge. If you do not collect your certificate for reasons that we are not responsible for, e.g. you miss the last session or leave early, we will post it to you (subject to you attending 70% of the course) but you must supply a self-addressed A4 envelope with a first-class stamp.
Replacement certificates can be produced up to one year after completion of your course but will incur a fee of £2.50 plus postage and packaging.

9. Disabled participants
We will make reasonable adjustments for participants with specific requirements. Please contact us before booking a place to discuss your requirements.

10. Participant conduct
Participants are expected to conduct themselves in a professional manner and to recognise that other delegates also require support and assistance. If a delegate becomes persistently disruptive, we reserve the right to offer a verbal or written warning and, if this does not resolve the situation, we may, at our discretion, ask the delegate to leave the event.

11. Force Majeure
We shall not be liable for any failure or delay in the performance, in whole or part, of any or our obligations arising from or attributable to acts, events, omissions or accidents beyond our reasonable control including, but not limited to strikes, lock-outs or other industrial disputes (whether involving our workforce or the workforce of any other party), act of God, war, riot, civil commotion, malicious damage, compliance with any law or governmental order, rule regulation or direction, accident, breakdown of plant or machinery, fire, flood, storm, pandemics, epidemics or other outbreaks of disease or infection, failure in the public supply of electricity, heating, lighting, air conditioning or telecommunications equipment.
