Cancellation and Non-attendance

We ask that participants do not book on training courses unless they are sure they can attend.

Places are at a premium and reserving places by booking and then cancelling will penalise other participants on over-subscribed events and incur a cost to the University. However, we understand that in some instances cancellation may be for unavoidable reasons.


How to cancel your booking

Repeat and late cancellers

If you are found to be cancelling repeatedly or making a number of late cancellations you may be penalised. We may either levy a charge or refuse your attendance on future training courses.
