20-21 Course which is reliant on IELTS/Pre-sessional course
- If the student is a prospective first-year Undergraduate or Postgraduate student and the offer of a place at the University or a Higher Education Institute in the UK is subject to completing and passing an IELTS (or equivalent) in the UK or in the student’s country of origin, and this is unable to be completed because the IELTS (or equivalent) is withdrawn entirely, the student may be eligible to be released from the 20-21 tenancy agreement. The student must provide written evidence that the course is no longer taking place at all within 3 days of being notified by the education institute.
If the student is unable to travel to, or enter, the UK due to a restriction on leaving their country of origin, or a restriction on entering the UK which means they cannot arrive in time to start their course, the student may be eligible to be released from this agreement subject to evidence being provided of a formal travel ban being in force.
