UNI-Prep's Terms and Conditions
1 - Booking Confirmation
Once we have processed your booking, we will send you a confirmation email with an invoice. Your place is guaranteed once payment has been received, both for online and in-class courses.
2 - Payment
Payment must be received in full in advance of the training course for in-class and online courses. Payment can be made through:
a) Credit Card or PayPal on the website
b) Bank wire transfer or Western Union
c) Telephone or e-mail (through a credit card)
2.1 - Fees & Shipping
UNI-Prep training courses may be subject to sales taxes, in which case they are inclusive in the fee. Course fees include tuition on the day(s) of the course offering, all relevant course materials and taxes (if applicable). Courses which include free shipping of certificates or other materials require 4-6 weeks for arrival at destination.* All shipped items are sent through regular postal service without tracking. No guarantee is provided that shipped items will arrive at the destination. If items do not arrive at the destination, UNI-Prep will provide proof of shipment to the address provided and students agree that this will render shipping services complete and will alleviate UNI-Prep of further responsibility or liability related to shipping. Students have the option to pay for premium shipping services which can guarantee delivery. In such instances, a handling fee is charged, along with any related shipping fees. Students can also pay for regular shipping (which includes a UNI-Prep handling fee and all related shipping fees) in case materials do not arrive at destination through no fault of UNI-Prep. UNI-Prep will be deemed free of fault upon providing proof of shipment.
*Note: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, international shipping services may be impacted or delayed in various countries. Please contact us for up to date information on whether shipping to your destination country has been impacted.
2.2 - Early Bird Discounts
The early bird discount applies to various UNI-Prep courses as listed on a course by course basis. The discount is not available in conjunction with any other offer and places are subject to availability.
2.3 - Registering Without Payment
At its discretion, UNI-Prep may offer a promotion allowing students to register in a course without advance payment. The payment for the course will be due when the student completes the course. A student is considered to have completed a course when they make a request to be issued a certificate or diploma from UNI-Prep. UNI-Prep will not issue an electronic or physical copy of any certificate or diploma until the payment has been made in full. The payment amount will be determined based on the price of the course on the date of registration in the course.
3 - Special Requirements
UNI-Prep will make every effort to accommodate special requests and requirements that have been notified in advance in writing. Please provide ample notice for special requests.
4 - Course Instructions
5 - Course Transfers
6 - Cancellations
To receive a refund, you must notify UNI-Prep in writing via e-mail at least 28 days before the start date of a course. If you do so within 28 days before the starte date of the course, you will receive a full refund minus an administration fee of 40% (plus any sales taxes) of the course fee. If you withdraw for any reason within the 28 day period prior to the start of the course, you will not be eligible for any refund. This policy applies to in-class courses only.
Should a participant require an invitation letter from UNI-Prep, we are able to provide this as long as full payment of the course fee has been received. UNI-Prep is not able to act on behalf of the participant and is not responsible for any costs incurred by failure to obtain a Visa.
6.1 - Non-Attendance
If you fail to attend the course on which you are booked and have not given prior notice in writing to UNI-Prep according to the conditions listed above then the course fee will remain payable in full and no transfer will be allowed.
6.2 - Cancellation by UNI-Prep
Where circumstances dictate, UNI-Prep reserves the right to change published courses, trainers, fees or venues without prior notice. In the event of a course being cancelled, a refund of the course fee will be made, but no compensation will be paid for any additional costs incurred by registrants. UNI-Prep reserves the right to expel any students from its course at its sole discretion. All students are expected to adhere to academic policies and conduct in a professional and respectful manner with UNI-Prep employees, staff, teachers, contractors and other students. Failure to do so may result in expulsion from courses at the sole discretion of UNI-Prep along with any other reprimand as determined by UNI-Prep. Students that have been expelled are not eligible for refunds and may only receive refunds at the sole discretion of UNI-Prep.
7 - Venues & Dress Code
Details of the specific venue will be sent in the course instructions for all training courses. There is no dress code; however, most participants choose to wear smart casual clothing.

10 - Refunds
11 - Notarization & Authentication
UNI-Prep Institute does not provide notarization or authentication services for certificates or diplomas, either to existing or former students. It is the student's responsibility to notarize, authenticate, legalize or apostille certificates and diplomas. Typically, students are able to have certificates or diplomas notarized and authenticated by contacting the appropriate governmental bodies and following the required steps. In some instances, the certificate or diploma may need to be notarized, either in the state of California or in another location. UNI-Prep does not provide this service, either for free or for a fee. However, at UNI-Prep's discretion and in exceptional circumstances, UNI-Prep Institute may provide only notarization service for a fee as determined by UNI-Prep. In virtually all cases, it is the students responsibility to get certificates or diplomas notarized. There are companies that provide notarization and authentication/apostille services for a fee and students may also make arrangements with these companies to obtain notarization or authentication services. If an additional original copy of a certificate or diploma is required for notarization or authentication purposes, students may order this for a fee from UNI-Prep Institute. Students may contact UNI-Prep to obtain names of some companies that offer notarization and apostille services.
