4. COURSE BOOKING AND PAYMENT TERMS
4.1 You acknowledge that on booking a place on a course we will do all that we can to prepare for your participation on the course, including acquiring additional equipment, and restructuring the delivery of the course. Accordingly you agree that the Cancellation Policies included in these terms and conditions are both fair and reasonable and as far as you are aware reflect the circumstances at the time of booking.
4.2 If you are a student from outside Australia, you must undertake to ensure that you have the appropriate visa that grants you permission to study in Australia.
5.1 All course fees must be paid in full upon enrolment. Student registrations cannot be accepted with a corresponding payment.
5.2 Course prices are inclusive of Goods and Services Tax (GST) to the extent that the course attracts GST.
5.3 We will try to ensure that you receive a place on a course for which you have booked and paid the appropriate fee in full. However we cannot guarantee your place on any course and in the unlikely event that we are unable to provide you with a place on a course for which you have paid a fee we will give you the option of a refund of the fee paid to date, or a place on another course or a place on a future running of the course as far as reasonably possible.
5.4 Payment can only be made to the School by PayPal. The School does not accept third party payment.
5.5 Our fees are exclusive on any money transfer charges or exchange rate deductions. Should we suffer any loss from transaction charges, exchange rate variations or other deductions we reserve the right to charge you immediately for these sums.
6. CANCELLATION POLICIES
6.1 We reserve the right to cancel any course at any time up to and including the start date of the course. Should this occur we will endeavour to give you at least seven days’ notice and to give you the option of a place on another course or a refund of your full fee or a place on a future running of the course.
6.2 You may cancel your place for a refund, less any external costs incurred and the 20% deposit, on all courses for which you have paid a fee as long as the cancellation is received in writing at least 7 days before the first day of the course. If you cancel your place 6 days or less before the start of the course then you are liable to pay the full fee.
6.3 You acknowledge that given the circumstances at the time of booking this is fair and reasonable and reflects inter alia our need to properly plan to accommodate you on the course. Further you irrevocably confirm that you consider this to be an appropriate assessment of our loss, including for the avoidance of doubt lost revenue and lost profit.
6.4 Where there are exceptional circumstances these will be dealt with entirely at the school’s discretion on a case-by-case basis.
6.5 You may be able to change your booking from one course to another, or one date to another, at the School’s complete discretion.
7. EXCLUSION / LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
7.1 Nothing in this agreement in any way excludes or restricts our liability for negligence causing death or personal injury or for fraudulent misrepresentation or for anything which may not legally be restricted. Nor does it affect consumers’ statutory rights. This section (and any other terms excluding or limiting our liability) applies to our directors, officers, employees, subcontractors, agents, parent, subsidiary and affiliated companies as well as to us.
7.2 For the avoidance of doubt our courses and other related products and services, including this website, are provided on an “as is” basis and save as expressly stated herein without representations, conditions, warranties or other terms of any kind, either express or implied, including but not limited to the implied warranties of satisfactory quality, fitness for a particular purpose, non-infringement or title.

8. INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY
8.1 All course material, products and services including those developed directly on the course by us remain the property of the Sydney Short Film School.
8.2 You will retain all intellectual property developed on the course by you. We are granted a lifetime royalty free license to use any materials which you produce on the course solely for marketing, internal and educational use.
8.3 You are free to exploit your developed materials as you see fit and we would be happy to discuss how we can assist you in doing so.
9.1 These terms and conditions constitute the entire agreement between you and the School in connection with your booking, purchase or use of our courses and related products and services. Any failure by us to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these terms and conditions shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of these terms and conditions is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavour to give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in the provision and that other provisions remain in full force and effect.
9.2 We have designed our courses to deliver appropriate learning across a range of disciplines. Although we will take reasonable steps to warn students of the content of potentially distressing course material, we make no apology for such course material as we believe the material in question is an important part of the learning experience. You agree to discuss any concerns you may have with us in advance.
