Changes to enrollments
We reserve the right to charge an administration fee of $100 each time course details are changed after documentation has been issued and sent with confirmation. This charge will not apply to extended courses.
Students taking any medicines should give their medicines to our staff as soon as they arrive on the campus. Clear written instructions (in English) on how the medicines should be administered must be obtained from the student's parent(s)/guardian(s) and given to our staff as well. Students should also inform us of any allergies they may suffer from.
If students feel ill during their course they should tell a member of staff immediately. We will then be able to provide any assistance that may be required.
Every student must have a comprehensive insurance package before leaving home. This should cover loss and/or damage to personal belongings, medical expenses in the event that the student is ill, and course fees in the event of an unexpected cancellation or curtailment of the student's course.
We accept no liability for the loss of, or damage to, any person's property while on the summer school premises, or while engaged in leisure activities outside the campus.
Group Leader responsibilities
Group leaders are responsible for coordinating the requirements of the students in their group. They should liaise regularly with our staff to ensure the smooth running of the program. Regular meetings are arranged between the school management and group leaders (normally at least twice a week) and group leaders are required to attend these meetings. Group leaders can only be responsible for students within their group.
Group leaders are responsible for the conduct of members of their group and maintaining discipline. It is important that group leaders ensure that their students arrive on time for scheduled activities and excursions in the interest of all students on the course.
All group leaders will be asked to sign a form stating that they are a fit and proper person to be allowed unrestricted access to under 16s.
We will also issue all group leaders with clear guidelines of what they can expect from us and what the school can expect from them. Both a member of the staff and the group leader must sign this form.
Cancellation before arrival
You must inform the office in writing. Cancellation fees are charged as follows, and any balance is refunded less any bank charges and non-refundable items:
- Cancellation received more than 40 days before the course begins: cancellation fee in the amount of the tuition deposit.
- Cancellation received 40 to 28 days before the course begins: cancellation fee in the amount of the tuition deposit plus 20% of the program fee.
- Cancellation received less than 28 days before the course begins: cancellation fee in the amount of the full program fee (including any deposit).
All refunds are made no later than 30 days after the denial letter (or a cancellation notice - in case a visa was not required to visit Canada) has been received by IPSA.
Cancellation after arrival
In no case money will be refunded once the course and/or lodging has started. Deposits and fees are not transferable from person to person. Students are advised to take out cancellation insurance with their local provider in case they need to cancel their courses within 40 days of the start date, or while they are on the course.
