Destinations of Leavers from HE (DLHE) Collection Notice
We will send information from this survey to the Higher Education Statistics Agency. HESA is the official source of data about UK universities and higher education colleges. This survey information will be linked to other information held about you as a student, including information you gave when you enrolled, and details of the qualification you gained. Together this forms your HESA Record. More information about how the HESA Record is used can be found in the Student Collection Notice.
Your DLHE survey responses will not be used to make decisions about you.
HESA collects, and is responsible for, the database in which your HESA Record is stored. HESA is a registered charity and operates on a not-for-profit basis. HESA uses the HESA Record, including the DLHE survey responses, itself for its own purposes. HESA also shares information from the HESA Record with third parties. It may charge other organisations to whom it provides services and data. HESA's use of the HESA Record may include linking information from it to other data, as described further below. All uses of the HESA Record must comply with the Data Protection Act 1998.
The HESA Record including DLHE survey responses are used for three broad purposes:
Purpose 1 - Public functions

Such users include the Office for National Statistics and the National Audit Office who may use the information to fulfil their statutory functions of measuring population levels and monitoring public expenditure.
The use of data by organisations under this Purpose 1 may include linking information in the HESA Record to other data as described further below.

Purpose 3 - Equal opportunity, research, journalism and other processing in which there is a legitimate interest
HESA and the other data controllers in common (see Purpose 1) may also supply information to third parties where there is a legitimate interest in doing so. Examples of use for this purpose include:
- Equal opportunities monitoring
- Research - This may be academic research, commercial research or other statistical research where this is in the public interest

Information from the HESA Record, may be linked to school and/or further education college information and supplied to researchers. A copy of the Agreement for the supply of linked data about pupils from schools in England is available here.

ENROLING ON THE PROGRAMME
Deposits, Fees and Payments
1.1 DEPOSITS: To book a place on a course, students must pay either (1) The full tuition fee; or (2) A minimum deposit of 50% of the total course fees (unless indicated otherwise on the application form, in which case the terms of the application form shall prevail). All deposits received are for the sole purpose of reserving a place on the course and are NON-REFUNDABLE except (1) In cases of VISA Refusal; AND (2) Subject to the student complying with the College’s VISA REFUSAL REFUND POLICY(Please refer to Clauses 4 – 5 below).
This means that if a student changes their mind after enrolling on a course, the deposit payment CANNOT be refunded.
1.2 FULL TIME STUDENTS: NO REFUNDS OR COURSE TRANSFERS ARE PERMISSIBLE after a student has been issued with a letter confirming their full time status. This is unless the student has received a VISA Refusal AND only where the student complies with the visa refusal refund policy (Please refer to Clauses 4 – 5 below).
1.3 PAYMENT DEADLINE: All tuition fees must be paid in full at least 30 days before the Commencement date of the Course. The Commencement date of the Course is the published date as provided on the Letter Confirming Successful Enrolment to London College of Contemporary Arts. Students who have not paid on time may lose their place on the course and may not be granted access to the School.
1.4 DISHONOURED PAYMENTS: A minimum charge of £50.00 will be made to students for all dishonoured payments. The College reserves the right to report offenders to the relevant professional body and the authorities, including, UKBA.
1.5 OVERDUE ACCOUNTS: The College reserves the right to charge interest at 10% per annum on overdue amounts, accruing daily from the date that such payments become due.
1.5.1 INSTALLMENT PAYMENT PLAN: The College expects all students to adhere to the terms and conditions of their payment plan, which includes submitting payment on the date it becomes due. A failure to comply with the terms and conditions of your payment plan renders any payment plan ineffective. As a result, the College may bring the payment plan to an end and reserves the right to recover all outstanding fees.
1.5.2 DEBT RECOVERY: Please note that in relation to overdue amounts, the College also reserves the right to pass this matter to our debt recovery company without further notification to you. This means that your data will be passed to our debt recovery company for further action. For the avoidance of doubt, should your data be passed to our debt recovery company in order to recover any overdue amounts, your liability to pay will be increased by additional fees and charges.
1.6 DISMISSAL FOR NON-PAYMENT: The College reserves the right to dismiss and expel any student at any time for the non-payment of fees. No fees will be refunded where a student is dismissed under this section.
1.7 REPORTING: The College is required to inform the appropriate authorities, including the UKBA, where a student has been removed from School under section 1.6 above. The College also reserves the right to report non-payment and delayed payment to credit-reporting agencies.
1.8 FEES SUBJECT TO CHANGE: Fees are published separately for each semester and are payable by all students studying at the time unless they have paid full fees prior to the publication of the new fees. Paying a deposit does NOT prevent any fee increase being applied.
1.9 FEES EXCLUSIVE OF PROFESSIONAL BODY CHARGES: All tuition fees exclude amounts payable to professional bodies for student registration, exemptions and examination entries. Any such fees are payable directly by the student, and the School accepts no responsibility for such payment.
1.10 VAT: When applicable, all amounts quoted include VAT. Some courses are provided by exempt bodies and are not subject to VAT. Please contact us for further details.
1.11 NO DEPOSIT ACCOUNT: Funds received but not utilised or refunded in accordance with these Terms and Conditions will be forfeited to the College.
1.12 CHANGES SUBJECT TO APPROVAL: The student agrees that he/she cannot change, defer or withdraw from the programme without prior consent from the College. Where a student has failed to comply with this clause 1.12, they will not be eligible for a refund.
2.1 PROMOTIONS SUBJECT TO CHANGE: Promotions and offers may have restricted eligibility requirements and may change from time to time.
2.2 VALUE-ADDED SERVICES: Availability of the online resources and other value-added services cannot be guaranteed due to reasons beyond the School's control, including technical faults and limitations. Except for online-only courses, access to all online resources is provided ex-gratia and does not form part of any contract for services.
2.3 COURSE SPECIFICATION SUBJECT TO CHANGE: The College reserves the right to change the courses, tutors, course specifications, lectures, other materials, published programmes, speakers, dates and locations from the previously published materials on the site or any other timetables as well as the right to alter to cancel or change the content of lectures and/or study materials and the identity of tutors at its own discretion. LCCA shall discharge its obligations in respect of a specific course by providing teaching which is materially similar to the course specification advertised, notwithstanding the fact that course dates, times and location, and/or the identity of the lecturer may vary from previously advertised specification.
2.5 NO TRANSFERS: No course transfers are permissible without the College’s prior written consent – this includes course transfers between students. Where the College agrees to a student’s course transfer, this is subject to an additional charge. All transfers are at the College’s sole and absolute discretion.
2.6 STUDENT COMMUNICATION BY EMAIL: The College sends out important student information (including timetable updates, class changes, etc.) exclusively by email. It is the student’s sole responsibility to ensure that the College has correct and up-to-date email addresses in our records, and that the student opens, reads and acts promptly upon such email notifications.
