F4A will not enter into correspondence with anybody or organisation representing the applicant, except for: the Ombudsman; a parent or guardian (only in the case where the applicant is a minor); a person representing a relevant accreditation body or institute; or the Applicant’s lawyer.
F4A will specifically not engage in further servicing, in all forms, with an applicant once that applicant has cancelled. The cancellation process brings to an end the relationship between F4A and the applicant.
The contracting party (the applicant) hereby warrants to F4A that the signatory (representing the applicant) has the required legal capacity to enter into, and be bound by these terms and conditions. The contracting party accepts all the terms and conditions of the entire agreement.
Adhering to Entrance Criteria
The applicant is responsible to ensure that he/she is on the correct course and that he/she adheres to the latest and correct entrance criteria. F4A will not accept applicants who do not adhere to the entrance criteria for the course on which they register. F4A will cancel applicants who register without adhering to the entrance criteria for the course on which they register.
F4A will have the right at its sole discretion, to cancel any course or subject initially advertised and offered, on the basis of insufficient demand. In the event of the signatories to this agreement, other than F4A, having completed this form incorrectly, or the payment details herein not being in accordance with the requirements of F4A, then such incorrect information or payment details shall be deemed to have been amended so as to be in accordance with the requirements of F4A, without further notice.
F4A will be deemed to include any subsidiary of S-I- S or any other juristic person to whom the rights and obligations of F4A, as contained herein may be ceded and/or assigned.
F4A automatically updates the study material periodically. Once an applicant has requested, paid and received a specific set of study material, F4A remains responsible for keeping that material up to date for a period of three months. If in that period there are significant changes of an academic nature to the study material, F4A will send the applicant updated study material at no cost.
If there are significant changes of an academic nature to the study material issued to an applicant, but these changes happen more than three months after the applicant was issued with the study material, F4A will inform the applicant of the changes, and give the applicant the option to buy the updated study material from F4A.
If the applicant made payment in full, study material will be supplied to the applicant in parts as and when assignments / portfolios are assessed. If the applicant opted for the Payment plan option, only the study material for the Programme relevant to the application will be supplied. Postage on all material sent to F4A is payable by the applicant. The replacement and postage of such study materials will be for the account of the applicant.
Capacity to enter into Agreement
The applicant, account/fee payer, lawful parent/guardian are herein collectively referred to as the “Applicant” or “Student.”
F4A reserves the right to use the student’s information to provide the materials to the student and otherwise perform its obligations and enforce its rights under this Agreement.
This agreement is subject to acceptance by F4A. This agreement constitutes the whole agreement between the Parties.
Cancellations and Refunds
The student has a 7-day cooling off period after the dated on the application form, within which the student can cancel with full refund minus the cancellation fee of R100-00. After the 7-day cooling off period, this agreement is binding and the student is fully responsible for all fees.
If a student pays course fees in full and then cancels, the student might be eligible for a partial refund of fees.
F4A will refund the “unused” part of such fees paid in full by a student. The “unused” part of the fees are calculated by adding up the cost of learning material dispatched, courier or postage fees, assessment and moderation fees plus a cancellation fee of R 500; and then subtracting this amount from the monies the applicant paid in full, minus any exam, membership or other institute fees (where applicable). Institute related fees are not refundable.
F4A reserves the right to cancel a student’s registration without having to defend its reason for such cancellation. If F4A chooses to cancel the registration of a student, such a student is entitled to a refund as per the cancellation policy. In the event of any student’s desiring to terminate studies, for any reason whatsoever, this shall not absolve the student from full liability for the payment of fees and any other charges.
The student’s failure to make progress in his or her studies or to complete a programme of study, for whatever reason shall in no way entitle him/her to a reduction in fees, nor will it absolve him/her from full liability for the payment of fees and other charges. No cancellation of this contract shall be of force or effect without written consent thereto by an authorized officer of F4A.
The right to tuition and examinations is not transferable.
If a student is not satisfied with the services delivered by F4A, but continues studying, F4A will continue to service the student and work towards solving the student’s concerns. F4A will also continue charging the student in this period. The student is specifically not eligible for a refund based on the period in which the student is or was registered with F4A. The only way a student can stop F4A charging for the availability of
services, is to cancel. As long as a student is not cancelled, the student is responsible for all fees up to and including the end of the current month. A student who has failed academically shall not receive any reimbursement of their tuition fee.
