Cancellation policy

Cancellation by UniAdmissions:

  • UniAdmissions may cancel the services of a Tutor up to 5 workings days prior to the booked services without being liable to pay the Tutor any sum. For the avoidance of doubt, any reference to a “working day” in this Agreement means a weekday, but not a Saturday, Sunday or any Bank Holiday.
  • Should UniAdmissions cancel between 48 hours and 5 workings days before the date of the booked services, the tutor will be paid either £10 or 20% of the agreed payment, whichever is lower.
  • Should UniAdmissions cancel less than 48 hours before the booked services, the tutor will be paid either £25 or 40% of the agreed payment, whichever is lower.

Cancellation by the Tutor:

  • The Tutor agrees to give at least 8 working days’ notice (not including the day of the event) when cancelling booked services. UniAdmissions understands that sometimes your circumstances may change, and so we are happy to accept cancellation from tutors with more than 8 working days notice
  • Should the Tutor cancel between 8 working days and 48 hours prior to the date of the booked services, then £30 or 50% of the agreed payment, whichever is lower, will be docked from any outstanding payments owed to the Tutor.
  • Should the Tutor cancel less than 48 hours prior to the booked work or fail to arrive on the day, either £50 or 100% of the agreed payment, whichever is lower, will be docked from any outstanding payments owed to the Tutor.
  • If the Tutor cancels on the day, or fails to arrive, travel costs associated with the services will not be reimbursed. Please note that extenuating circumstances will be taken into consideration, but may not be accepted.
  • If the Tutor cancels less than 48 hours prior to the booked services, or fails to turn up at the booked services, UniAdmissions reserves the right to terminate this agreement.
  • If the Tutor is late to an event without extenuating circumstances, their fee may be adjusted at the discretion of the directors. If this occurs more than once, UniAdmissions reserves the right to terminate this agreement.

Cancellation by the Student:

  • Should the Student (or Parent/Payee) cancel or fail to attend an arranged online tutoring session, no reimbursement is provided.
  • Should the Student (or Parent/Payee) cancel the first arranged in person tutoring session within 24 hours of arranged session start time, only pre-arranged travel expenses will be reimbursed to the Tutor by UniAdmissions upon proof of purchase and proof of cancellation.
  • Should the Student (or Parent/Payee) not arrive for the first arranged in person tutoring session, any pre-arranged travel expenses will be reimbursed to the Tutor by UniAdmissions upon proof of purchase and a written report of the case.
  • Should the Student (or Parent/Payee) not arrive for any additional arranged in person tutoring (following the first non-arrival) sessions following the first cancellation, the Tutor will receive full payment for the planned session time and travel expenses upon sign-off by UniAdmissions of a full written report of the case and proof of travel ticket purchase(s) provided by the Tutor within 48 hours of the case occurring. Any report filed outside of 48 hours will be considered at the discretion of the Directors.
