Terms and Conditions

The following page sets out our terms and conditions for the use of and access to our website www.ehdacademy.co.uk as well as the terms and conditions to all students accepted to study at EHD Academy (a trading name of Energy House Digital Limited, 2-4 Great Eastern Street, London, EC2A 3NW registered in England & Wales No. 6244208)).

EHD Academy Terms & Conditions

By applying for a course with EHD Academy or paying a deposit for a course you confirm acceptance of these terms and conditions as legally binding until successful completion by you of the course, unless terminated or cancelled earlier in accordance with these terms and conditions.

  1. Course Attendance,Conduct and Course Structure
    1. EHD Academy courses are demanding and require a serious commitment from all students. EHD Academy wants to ensure that all students on its courses have the best possible opportunity to succeed and therefore reserves the right to suspend from the course any student who in any way disrupts the course environment or fails to make satisfactory progress. Other than in the event of serious disruptive behavior we will seek to resolve any issues collaboratively by way of dialogue before taking more serious steps.
    2. If we find (acting reasonably and having undertaken a thorough investigation) that a student is failing to keep up with the demands of the course they have chosen, and after consulting with the student we decide that the student is not likely to successfully complete the course, we reserve the right to require the student to leave the course. Provided we are satisfied, acting reasonably and taking all reasonable circumstances into consideration, that the student has made a good faith effort to succeed on the course we may choose to refund a pro-rata amount of the course fees paid by a student who is required to leave (based on the number of hours of the course remaining after the student was required to leave, as a percentage of the total number of course hours). In any other circumstances the terms of section 4 (“Payment of Fees if the course is not completed”) below will apply.
    3. Students will be required to comply with all rules and regulations of EHD Academy and the premises in which EHD Academy courses are held. EHD Academy reserves the right to exclude any student for failure to do so.
    4. EHD Academy runs part-time and full-time courses. Full-time courses run Monday – Friday, while part-time courses run Mon-Friday evenings and/or weekends. Please see the EHD Academy website for an up to date timetable of courses.
    5. Every EHD Academy course is constantly reviewed and improvements are made. This means that the course you attend may not be identical to previous courses, and, whilst it will be materially the same, may not be identical to that described on the EHD Academy website.
  2. Deposit, Course Fees and Payments
    1. Once accepted on an EHD Academy course students will be required to pay a non-refundable deposit to secure their place on a course.
    2. Following payment of the deposit, the student must pay 100% of the published fee for the relevant course, less the deposit, so that it is received in EHD Academy’s bank account no later than 10 days before the commencement of the course. The fee is non-refundable if the student withdraws from the course within the 10 days prior to the start of the course.
    3. If payment in full is not received by EHD Academy in its bank account within 10 days prior to the  commencement of a course, EHD Academy may, at its discretion, reallocate the place reserved for the student to a wait-listed student in which case the original student will no longer be able to attend the course and will not be entitled to have their deposit refunded .
    4. EHD Academy will direct students to the payment services provider used by EHD Academy so that the student can pay the deposit and course fees online. Alternatively, students can pay the deposit and course fees by bank transfer to EHD Academy’s nominated bank account.
    5. Course fees are subject to change however payment of the non-refundable deposit will secure the course at the price advertised at that time.
    6. Third party providers may offer EHD Academy courses via their systems. These providers are entirely independent of EHD Academy and EHD Academy assumes no responsibility or liability for services that they offer.
    7. If a student fails to complete a course, EHD Academy reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to charge the student the full amount of fees outstanding (being the full course fee less the deposit paid) immediately following confirmation that the student will not be completing the course for any reason. In exceptional circumstances EHD Academy may, in its sole discretion, agree to waive payment of part or all of the outstanding fees.
  1. Refund Policy
    1. Any deposit or course fee paid by a student in accordance with the payment plan selected by the student set out in section “Deposit” above is non-refundable unless the course on which the student is enrolled is cancelled (whether prior to the course commencing, or after its commencement) by EHD Academy, in which case any course fee which has been paid by the student will be refunded in full.
  2. Right to Study
    1. All students must have the right to study in the UK under applicable UK rules, and hold a current visa if necessary. A guide to these rules can be found at: http://www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/visas-immigration/studying/
    2. As a general rule you will not need a visa if you hold a passport issued by the UK or any other country in the European Economic Area (EEA) or Switzerland.
    3. Please note that EHD Academy is not currently an accredited institution for the purposes of the “student visitor” category.
    4. Students will be required to produce an EEA or Swiss passport on enrolment on a course. If you intend to rely on other documents, you should provide full details to EHD Academy when applying for a course.
