Terms and conditions for entrepreneurship events

These terms and conditions constitute a legally binding agreement between UCL Innovation and Enterprise and the individual registering.

Note: The term 'event' refers to conferences, events, courses and workshops.

Payment and confirmation of booking

Please note that there are two steps to the registration process:

  1. If the event requires registering details on Eventbrite, please ensure you provide all the necessary information. Other events may require you to complete an application form, plus supporting documentation. Please follow instructions as required for each individual event.
  2. a) An email confirmation will be sent to the applicant once an Eventbrite booking has been received or an application submitted.
    b) If payment is required for an event, please follow the instructions regarding payment for that specific event.

If an email confirmation has not been received after completing the registration process, please contact entrepreneurship@ucl.ac.uk or the contact person for the event.

Final details about the event will be sent up to seven working days prior to the event. Please contact entrepreneurship@ucl.ac.uk if you don't receive event details.

UCL Innovation and Enterprise cannot be held responsible for the non-arrival of event information.

Cancellations and refunds

General

All cancellations and refund requests must be made in writing three full working days (Monday to Friday) prior to the start of the event to entrepreneurship@ucl.ac.uk (or to the contact person for the event).

If the above notification period is not given, or in the event of non-attendance, then the following cancellation fee applies, whatever the reason:

  • £25 for a half-day workshop
  • £50 for one or more days

During the event, please ensure that your attendance is noted each day to avoid being charged the cancellation fee - this will normally be by signing an attendance sheet at registration.

Illness

In the event of non-attendance due to illness, a doctor’s certificate must be provided, otherwise the full cancellation fee will be charged.

Individuals who withdraw after the start of an event will still be liable for the cancellation fee as outlined above.

Cancellation and non-attendance for paid events

An individual who has registered for an event who doesn't provide the required three working days notice and who fails to attend will be charged the full course fee, in addition to the cancellation fee as above. This is due to administrative, speaker and catering costs incurred by the department (and your place could have been allocated to another individual).

Attendees are welcome to send a substitute without incurring a charge, provided UCL Innovation and Enterprise is notified in writing (entrepreneurship@ucl.ac.uk or the event contact person) three full working days prior to the event.

Unforseen circumstances

UCL Innovation and Enterprise reserves the right to cancel or re-schedule an event due to unforseen circumstances. In the unlikely event of cancellations, UCL Innovation and Enterprise will refund the full amount of the registration fee (if applicable). However, personal expenses incurred by the attendee are non-refundable by UCL Innovation and Enterprise.

UCL Innovation and Enterprise reserves the right to make changes to the programme, location and/or speakers without prior notice. Such alterations are occasionally necessary due to circumstances beyond our control.

UCL staff

When applying for a course, UCL staff may be asked to provide an account code before the booking is confirmed. The cancellation fee will be automatically charged (according to the above) to your department if UCL Innovation and Enterprise is not notified that you're unable to attend the course at least three working days prior to the event.

UCL students

UCL students wishing to attend will be personally liable for the cancellation. UCL Innovation and Enterprise will contact them directly. As with all monies owed to UCL, unpaid fees may lead to delays in receiving your degree.

Externals

External businesses/individuals will be contacted directly for payment details if they don’t comply with the cancellation policy.

Speakers

Views expressed by speakers are their own. UCL Innovation and Enterprise disclaim any liability for advice given, or views expressed, by any speaker at the event or in any documentation provided by delegates.

Filming and photography

Please note that for teaching and promotional purposes there may be a professional photographer and video production taking place during the event.

Delegate access and dietary requirements

UCL Innovation and Enterprise makes every effort that their events are accessible and enjoyable for all attendees and we will always provide a vegetarian option if refreshments are supplied.

If you have any dietary or specific requirements please inform entrepreneurship@ucl.ac.uk or the event contact person at the time of booking.

Data protection

The registration information provided will be held on UCL databases. You may be contacted about other UCL Innovation and Enterprise or UCL activities in the future. By submitting this information you agree that your details may be used for this purpose. Your details will not be passed on to any third parties.
