15)   Force Majeure

i.        OSA shall not be liable for any failure, delay or part-performance in performing their obligations where such failure or delay results from any cause that is beyond their reasonable control. Such causes include, but are not limited to: power failure, Internet Service Provider failure, third party service or facility withdrawal, industrial action, civil unrest, fire, flood, storms, earthquakes, outbreak of contagious or other notifiable human or animal infection, disease or condition, air traffic disruption, acts of terrorism, acts of war, governmental action or changes in legislation/regulation, any direction of a competent local or national authority (or fear of such), or any other event that is beyond the control of OSA.

OSA shall not be required to offer such an alternative place, does not guarantee that it will do so, and shall not be required to offer any refund or monetary compensation to the Student in such cases. For the avoidance of doubt, the occurrence of a Force Majeure Event shall in no circumstances place any requirement on OSA to make any form of reimbursement, compensation or refund


16)   Promotional activities

i.        OSA staff members may ask the Student to participate in photographs, videos or other promotional activities during the Programme, for use in OSA’s future publicity. Online Courses may also be recorded and the recording may be made available publicly to enable other students and parents to be able to watch the recording, or for promotional or other purposes.

17)   Relationships

i.        OSA is an organisation which contracts with St Peter’s College, Corpus Christi College, the Blavatnik School of Government, the Saïd Business School and other such organisations for the use of facilities, but which has no formal connection with The University of Oxford.


18)   Lost Property

Please note, the following section is only applicable if the Student is attending the Summer School:

i.        OSA can’t be held responsible for any items deemed to be lost property. Lost property handed to or found by OSA staff will be kept for 8 weeks before being donated to charity or recycled. Loose, unnamed paperwork will be recycled immediately. OSA staff will endeavour to return property of high value or official hard copy documents containing personal data where the owner can be easily identified. If it is not possible to do this within the nominated time period, these items will be donated to local registered charities, or if not suitable for donation, the items will be destroyed. Items will be returned in the condition that OSA received them in

ii.        Many students choose to leave property behind in their rooms after they depart the Summer School, so as not to take it back home (please note, the cleaners may dispose of these items so it is important that students make sure they take home all items which they want to). As such, OSA’s policy is not to inform students that they have left property behind. Any lost property recovered from a student room will follow the lost property procedure above


19)   Departure

Please note, the following section is only applicable if the Student is attending the Summer School:

i.        After graduation, the Student will be allowed to sign out from the summer school and travel home independently unless their parent/guardian has specifically asked for this not to happen.


20)   General

i.        Nothing in this Contract shall be construed as creating a partnership with the Student

ii.        The Student may not subcontract any rights under this contract to another person or company without the consent of OSA

iii.        OSA may assign all or any of its rights under this Contract to any person or company without any requirement to notify or obtain further consent of the Student

iv.        No amendments of this Contract shall be effective unless confirmed in writing and signed by both OSA and the Student

v.        No waiver by OSA of any breach of these terms shall be considered as a waiver of any subsequent breach of the same or any other provision. A waiver of any term, provision or condition shall be effective only if given in writing and signed by the waiving party and then only in the instance and for the purpose for which the waiver is given

vi.        Whilst every effort has been made to ensure that this Contract adheres strictly with the relevant provisions of the Unfair Contract Terms Act 1977, in the event that any of these terms are found to be unlawful, invalid or otherwise unenforceable, that term is to be deemed severed from this Contract and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of the remaining terms. This term shall apply only within jurisdictions where a particular term is illegal

vii.        The headings in this Contract are for convenience only and shall not affect the interpretation of the Contract

viii.        Words imparting the singular shall include the plural and vice versa

ix.        References to any gender shall include the other gender

x.        OSA makes every effort to provide an accurate description of the Programme, but can make no guarantee about the content or structure, which may change

xi.        OSA reserves the right to cancel Programmes (for reasons including, but not limited to, insufficient numbers of students signed up for the course), in which case OSA will make every effort to transfer the Student to another Programme

xii.        OSA reserves the right to modify or cancel the Programme, and to make alterations to the programme, terms, rules, policies, courses and tutors at any time before or during the Programme without the Student’s consent. OSA shall not be held responsible for any inconvenience caused and extra expenses incurred

xiii.        Wherever possible, OSA will try to accommodate the Student’s reasonable requests for a change to his booking (e.g.: change of course or change of dates) but cannot guarantee and is under no obligation to do so. Students may change from the Summer School to an Online Course any time before 1st April, but after this date won’t be allowed to move (this is because OSA needs to book the appropriate number of bedrooms for the Summer School)

xiv.      OSA may occasionally share its premises with other students or individuals, and will take all appropriate measures to safeguard its own students

xv.        Photographs are provided as an example only and OSA’s accommodation, tutors, classrooms or other facilities may be different to those displayed.

xvi.        Where any OSA policy differs with these Terms and Conditions, these Terms and Conditions shall prevail

xvii.        OSA does not intend any term of this Contract to be enforceable pursuant to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999

xiii.        This Contract shall be governed by the laws of England and Wales

xix.        Each party irrevocably submits to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of England and Wales, to settle any dispute or question relating to this Contract, or any other matter
