It is not possible for payment to be made in stages; payment must be received in full for your place to be confirmed.


Please see our  World Challenges and Innovation Summer School terms and conditions (pdf) for details of the circumstances in which you can apply for a refund.


If we have to cancel the World Challenges and Innovation Summer School due to a failure to meet minimum recruitment levels or because of an event outside our control, we will refund your tuition fees.

However, we are unable to accept liability for any costs or losses incurred by you which are the result of the cancellation. We therefore advise that you take out insurance against cancellation of the Summer School if your travel costs are likely to be substantial.

If we fail to meet a minimum recruitment level, we will inform you no later than four weeks before the Summer School start date.
