ACCOMMODATION BEYOND THE PROGRAMME Should you wish to stay with us beyond the programme duration (eg. if you intend to enrol at CATS College in September 2018), we may be able to assist with finding accommodation although there will be a separate charge for residency. 5. DETAILS OF THE PROGRAMME The course outline and sample timetable featured in marketing is illustrative only. We reserve the right to make changes without prior notice. The student must abide by the College rules as may be published or announced by the College from time to time. Failure to abide by these rules may result in expulsion from the programme - the college reserves the right to require a student’s immediate withdrawal from the college for serious disciplinary or behavioural matters including continued or repeated misconduct, or absence from the programme. No refund in fees will be made in these circumstances. It is mandatory for students under 18 years of age to attend the evening activities and Saturday excursions, trips and off-site activities.

PERSONAL PROPERTY The College does not accept responsibility or liability whatsoever, including liability through the acts, omissions or negligence of its employees, agents or assignees for the student’s personal property, and the student is advised to take out personal insurance to cover any loss or damage to personal property which may occur while the student is at the College although the student, parents, guardians or carers for the student, and the person responsible for the payment of fees, should take independent advice on the content of such policies before committing themselves. 9.

“I liked everything! I enjoyed the international environment and getting to know other perspectives and world views. I also enjoyed being able to communicate in English and have lessons in English. I like the school and the modern feel. The university open days were good, and the subjects were enjoyable especially economics, critical thinking and politics as I had not done these before.� Kateryna Popova Careers in Law, Business and Finance
