The University expressly excludes any liability for any direct or indirect losses or damages howsoever arising as a result of such cancellation and will not, for example, be responsible for any travel or accommodation costs incurred. In the event of cancellation, the University will use reasonable endeavours to publicise the cancellation and details will be posted on the website associated with the Conference or event. Attendees are responsible for checking this information prior to the event. Wherever possible, the University will endeavour to contact delegates by email in the event of cancellation.

We will refund the value of the booking or any ticket sold upon proof of purchase when cancellation takes place at least one month before the Conference or Event. When cancelled less than one month but more than ten (10) working days before the conference we will refund a percentage not less than 50% of the charge. No refunds will be given for cancellation less than ten (10) working days before the Conference or Event date or for non-attendance without notification, unless a refund is made entirely at the discretion of the University.
