Cancellation Policy

These terms and conditions, together with the registration form, constitute a legally binding contract between you and us (Bournemouth University Higher Education Corporation).

The registration fee includes: symposium registration and access to all symposium sessions, symposium material, symposium proceedings, refreshments and lunch throughout the symposium. Accommodation, travel expenses to/from the venue and bank charges are not included in registration fees.

All fees are payable in advance of the event, failing which you may be refused admission. Your registration is not considered confirmed until payment is received in full.

Please note that all attendee's must produce a valid ticket to attend the event.

Holders of Student tickets must produce a valid student identification card upon demand. Student tickets include the Student Early Bird and the Student Full Price concessions. We reserve the right to refuse the ticket holder access to the event if they fail to produce a valid student card on the day.

It may be necessary for reasons beyond our control to change the content & timing of the symposium, the speakers, the date or the venue. In the unlikely event of the course being cancelled, we will automatically make a full refund but disclaim any further liability.

If you are unable to attend you may substitute, by arrangement with the organisers, someone else from the same institute/organisation. Registrations cancelled on or before 18th March 2011 will receive a full refund. Registrations cancelled on or after 19th March 2011 will be subject to a 100% cancellation fee. Please email
