Accepting our offer

In conjunction with the student handbook and your offer letter, these terms and conditions constitute a legally binding agreement between the London School of Emerging Technology (“LSET”) and you, a prospective student. By accepting the LSET’s offer of a place on a programme, you accept these terms and conditions in full, including the LSET’s relevant rules, regulations, policies and procedures as may be updated from time to time, which can be located at www.lset.uk/regulations-policies-and-procedures

By accepting these terms, you confirm that you have read and understood the contents of this agreement and the rules, regulations, policies and procedures contained in the link above. Please take care to read all of these terms before you accept your offer with us. These terms tell you who we are, how we will deliver programmes to you, how you and the LSET may change or end the contract, what you or the LSET may do if there is a problem and other important information.

In particular, your attention is drawn to the following section below:

“Your right to change your mind” – This section contains important information on the refund policy. Please note that, after the cooling-off period, you must work with your course coordinator to solve any issues related to but not limited to course instructions, assignments, teaching style, etc. We will take appropriate steps to ensure you succeed in the registered course.

Changes to Your Programme of Study

All information contained in the student handbook, prospectus and offer letter is accurate as of the date of publication. It must be understood, however, that changes may be necessary to programmes, modules, the student handbook, the prospectus content, and services provided by the LSET, for example, to meet regulatory or accreditation requirements, or to stay up to date with current practice or scientific knowledge. During such a scenario, the LSET reserves the right to adjust your programme accordingly, including changing assessments and/or teaching methods and curriculum, to ensure that you are able to continue your studies in a safe and healthy environment at no risk to the LSET, its students or staff. Many of the actions the LSET will take are outlined in its Student Protection Plan.

The LSET acknowledges, however, that it is not always possible to identify and prepare for every potential risk. It is therefore possible that the Management Team (Academic Operations Manager, Marketing Manager, Business Development Manager, HR Manager, Compliance Manager) may decide to make changes to your programme in accordance with the paragraph below. It is also possible that changes may need to be made outside the LSET’s control, such as when key staff leave, severe weather, fire, civil unrest, political unrest, government restrictions, an outbreak of serious illness or an escalation of the Covid19 pandemic. Should one of these “Triggering Events” necessitate changes to the LSET’s delivery of your programme, the Management Team (Academic Operations Manager, Marketing Manager, Business Development Manager, HR Manager, Compliance Manager) will meet to determine the best course of action.

Management Team (Academic Operations Manager, Marketing Manager, Business Development Manager, HR Manager, Compliance Manager) decisions may include, but are not limited to: deferring teaching and/or assessments, changing the mode of study such as moving to online teaching, changing the location of study, changing the mode of assessment, changing the dates of teaching and/or assessments, or cancelling teaching with a refund of tuition. We at the LSET are committed to providing you with the support you need in order to successfully complete your studies. When a Triggering Event occurs, we will inform you at our earliest opportunity if we need to make changes to the programme, and explain how we intend to mitigate the impact of such changes. In the event that significant changes are required before you are able to register for the programme, we will inform you so that you can consider whether you would like to withdraw your application.

When the LSET may withdraw its offer of admission or terminate your participation in the program

In certain circumstances, the LSET may withdraw or amend its offer of admission to you, or terminate your registration at the LSET, without a refund of any fees paid, including where:
  • your application contains incorrect or fraudulent information, or you have omitted significant information;
  • your fee status needs to be re-assessed;
  • your academic performance fails to meet satisfactory standards;
  • your conduct or attendance breaches the School’s policies;
  • you fail to pay your fees;
  • you do not have the correct visa or immigration permissions. In such circumstances, the LSET will apply its relevant policy and/or procedure in reaching a decision to withdraw your offer of admission or terminate your registration, and will not be liable to compensate you for any loss or damage you may suffer as a result.

Tuition Fees

The fee payable for your programme is set out in your offer letter. Tuition fees are due, in full, 2 weeks before the start date of your programme (stated on your offer of admission). You can pay your fees by credit/debit card, cash or bank transfer. If you are a UK resident, you may be able to pay your fees in two equal instalments, but the entire fees must be paid before the 2 weeks of the program start date. You may be removed from your programme, be prevented from progressing, or face legal action, if you do not pay your fees. Please see the LSET’s Student Tuition Fees Policy for full guidance: https://lset.uk/tuition-and-fees/. If you have any concerns regarding the payment of fees or require further information about tuition fees please contact the Admission Team by email at [email protected].

Your Offer of Admission

In your offer letter, you will find information concerning admission to the programme and the mode of study. LSET may make you a conditional or unconditional offer. In the event that your offer is conditional, the LSET will outline the conditions you must meet in order to be admitted to the programme you are interested in. The contract will be formed when we have confirmation that you have accepted these terms, and have met all other necessary preconditions, including any academic conditions, entry and visa requirements, and the payment of fees.

UK Applicants holding an offer of admission will be required to pay at least half of the fees against their tuition fee in order to confirm the acceptance of their place. The deposit is deductible from your tuition fees upon full registration with LSET. The deposit is payable in order to confirm your acceptance of an Offer of Admission, regardless of whether the offer is conditional or unconditional, and is payable upon acceptance. Failure to pay the tuition fee deposit by the deadline set out in your Offer of Admission will result in the offer being rescinded. International students are required to pay the entire tuition fee in order to confirm the acceptance of their place. Please see the LSET’s Student Tuition Fees Policy for full guidance on deposit payments: https://lset.uk/tuition-and-fees/

If you have not fulfilled the conditions of your offer before the date notified to you in your Offer or any other date notified to you, the LSET reserves the right to withdraw your offer or defer your application to the next intake. It is your responsibility to ensure that all of the information you provide to the LSET and/or the UK Home Office and/or the UK Foreign Office is true and accurate. Once you have begun your studies on the programme, the contract will continue until either the completion of your studies or the LSET or you decide to end your place on the programme, including by withdrawal of admission or termination of registration.


You will need to demonstrate, at the point of registration, that you have a valid immigration status to undertake your proposed programme of study. You must take responsibility for ensuring that you comply with the terms of your student visa whilst studying at the LSET. In the event that your Visa permits you to work part-time, you should ensure that any work you engage in on a part-time basis does not exceed the limits set by law. The validity of your visa and your ability to enter and/or remain in the United Kingdom will be affected if you discontinue your studies if your registration is terminated by the LSET, or if you are granted permission to interrupt your studies.

Your right to change your mind

After you have accepted your offer of a place on the programme, you can cancel your acceptance without having to give a reason, so long as we receive your cancellation within 14 days starting from the date when we received your acceptance. If you cancel your offer within the 14-day cancellation period, any fees you have paid will normally be refunded in full. If you start the programme during the 14-day cancellation period, the LSET will be entitled to charge a reasonable sum for the part of the programme provided. You can cancel your acceptance by informing the LSET’s Registry by email at [email protected]


Despite our commitment to providing a high-quality student experience, there are occasions when things go wrong. You may raise a complaint regarding admissions, academic matters, or non-academic matters with the LSET if you feel that your issue cannot be resolved informally. Further details are available here: www.lset.uk/regulations-policies-and-procedures/complaints-policy.


Subject to any ruling by the Office for Students, Office of the Independent Adjudicator or any other regulatory body with authority to superpose these terms and conditions and on the provision that nothing in this section seeks to limit liability for death or personal injury, fraud, misrepresentation, unlawful discrimination, harassment, breach of the implied terms of the sale of goods and services act or such other provisions that are prohibited from limitation or would render this section ineffective. The LSET’s liability for distress and anxiety, falling short of personal injury, where not the result of unlawful discrimination shall be limited to £500. The LSET shall not be liable for:

  • indirect or consequential loss including a loss of earnings, profits or opportunity;
  • travel, accommodation, subsistence, immigration fees, stationary, books or other losses consequential to this agreement or your study at the LSET;
  • any loss that you would otherwise not have suffered if you had taken reasonable steps to avoid or reduce the loss;
  • any loss or expense arising from changes to your programme of study as a result of a Triggering Event (see: Changes to Your Programme of Study).

Other conditions

Each of the sentences in these terms operates separately. If a court or relevant authority finds that any part of these terms is not enforceable, the rest of the terms will continue in full force and effect, and the LSET will substitute a new term to achieve the same effect which is enforceable.

If the LSET delays in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us from taking steps against you at a later date. For example, if you miss a deadline for payment or submission of a piece of work, and we do not chase you but we continue to provide the programme, we can still require you to take these steps at a later date.

These terms are governed by English law.

Alternative dispute resolution is a process where an independent person or body considers the facts of a dispute and seeks to resolve it, without you having to go to court. If you are not happy with the outcome of any relevant internal and external procedures concerning your complaint, you should discuss with the LSET whether alternative dispute resolution procedures may be an option. If we agree with you to use alternative dispute resolution but no resolution is reached, your rights to take legal action are not affected.
