How much does it cost?
The cost to attend a Headstart course is the numeric part of the course code - eg LEE/365 explains the fee to attend Headstart at Leeds is £365 or CAM/415 explains the fee to attend Headstart at Cambridge is £415. Everthing's included - tuition, accommodation and meals, but not your travel to and from the University, which you must arrange and pay for yourself.
The cost to attend an Inspire course is dependent on whether you attend a residential or non-residential course.
The cost to attend a Routes into STEM course is £125 which covers tuition and food, but not your travel to and from the venues each day. You must arrange and pay for this yourself.
You are not asked to pay any fee until you have been sent an offer of a place on one of our courses. But once you have accepted a course place and paid the fee, this is non refundable.
Because we are a charitable trust, very leanly resourced and not receiving any government funding, once you accept and pay for a course place, we ask that you do attend, and do not cancel off the course and ask for your money back.
Despite being over-subscribed, once offers have been made and the courses are full, we tell unsuccessful students who then go on to make alternative arrangements. In addition, we have strict criteria laid down by Universities so we cannot make an offer to a replacement student. This means it is normally not possible for us to backfill a course, so the place goes unfilled.
To sum up - we don't offer refunds if you change your mind after paying for a course. If you are lucky enough to get an offer, please read it through thoroughly, check the dates for any clashes with exams, and look at the title, location and description of the course. Make sure you are happy before you pay. And finally, if we make you an offer, it's you we want!
We reserve the right to cancel or change any aspect of a course without notice. Cancellation may result in a suitable alternative being offered, or a full refund.
We look forward to welcoming you to the Headstart, Inspire or Routes into STEM programme 2017!
