Conscious Courses, being a division of UK College of Holistic Training, operates the same terms of trading with some small amendments specifically for the Conscious Courses range of diplomas.
The Terms of Trading are given below:
We reserve the right to make changes to the availability, content, tuition fees, set books or any other details of any course at any time. The mention of a course on this website is not a guarantee of availability. If we receive a payment and the course is not available, a full refund will be made.
We reserve the right to refuse admission to any course without giving a reason.
UKCHT/Kadmon/Conscious Courses courses are presented for educational purposes only. They are not substitutes for psychological or medical care, counselling or psychotherapy. Please consult your medical doctor if you have a medical problem. If you require counselling or psychotherapy, please consult a qualified practitioner.

In compliance with the EU Distance Selling Directive and Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000.
This law and the rights detailed below apply to all transactions within the UK for customers in the UK and the EU, where the customer does not meet the seller in person.
Sales from one business to another are not controlled by these regulations. If you are a self-employed professional, and you have enrolled on one of our courses for professional development purposes, we interpret that to be a business-to-business transaction.
The law allows you a 7-day "cooling off" period. During that time you have the right to cancel your contract and to obtain a full refund. The 7 days will begin from the time you receive our confirmation of your enrolment. During that time you may cancel without a reason. Let us know by the quickest means: email, fax, telephone (we will return the call if you reach our voicemail and leave your number - but landlines only please, no mobiles.) Please also confirm your request by letter sent by regular mail to our postal address in London. If you claim a refund within the 7-day "cooling off" period we will let you have that refund within 30 days.
Any refunds of moneys paid by credit/debit card will be refunded to the same card. Paypal payments will be refunded via Paypal. Non-card payments will be refunded by the most convenient means at our discretion - normally by cheque.
However, the regulations allow that if the order is for specially personalised goods, the right to cancel a purchase does not apply. If, for example, we have arranged an award comprising a personalised certificate, or you are ordering a personalised or made to order product the "cooling off" period will not apply.
If you are outside the UK or EU the Distance Selling Regulations do not apply and there is no statutory requirement for a refund. Please ensure you are committed to the course before you enrol.
CANCELLATIONS OR INTERRUPTIONS AFTER THE COOLING OFF PERIOD
After the "cooling off" period, our services will be available for you during your registration period and for any longer period that we have agreed. If you do not exercise your right to use those services, then that does not entitle you to a refund. If you need to suspend your studies for any reason, it is your responsibility to let us know as soon as possible, and we will give you any appropriate advice. At our discretion, we can decide to lengthen the registration period for a specified time without further charge.
Modular payments to not apply to the "Conscious Courses" range of courses.
