Trading terms

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/Conscious Courses programmes 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.

Students are responsible for their own well-being.  UKCHT is not responsible for the outcome of the use of any technique or material taught in any course.

In compliance with the EU Distance Selling Directive and Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000 and any subsequent applicable regulations. 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 14-day "cooling off" period. During that time you have the right to cancel your contract and to obtain a full refund.  The 14 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 email that you wish to cancel. Please also confirm your request by letter sent by regular mail to our postal address in London. If you claim a refund within the 14-day "cooling off" period we will let you have that refund within 30 days.


Paypal payments will be refunded via Paypal.  Non-Paypal 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.



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.



The acceptance of your application is valid for 7 days during which payment must be made. If we do not receive payment within that period your application will be cancelled and the record destroyed, for data protection reasons. You will need to re-apply later if you wish to join the course at a later date.



Modular payments to not apply to the "Conscious Courses" range of courses. The whole required fee must be pai when we accept your application.

We reserve the right to make changes to course content, required books, syllabi, assessment details and any other particulars at any time.



The course essay will be assessed for its adherence to the requested study plan, and for general standard of writing, presentation, readability, quality of discussion and documentation of sources. Essays will be marked on a pass/fail basis. If the student passes the course and and any other specific academic requirements are met and all fees due have been paid, the award will be issued.

TIMESCALES (for Academic Advisors)  

We will make every effort to assess any essay within 7 days, after which the diploma will be awarded on passing the assessment.



A student who fails a Conscious Courses course may re-take it one more time at no further charge. Additional attempts will require extra fees.



It is the student's responsibility to ensure that there are sufficient funds in the account before issuing a cheque or other payment.  If necessary please verify the balance by checking with your bank. A fee of £40 will be charged to cover costs and administration time in the event of a payment being dishonoured.



The College reserves the right to cancel a student’s registration at any time without notice, or withhold recommendation for an award, without refund if the student is found to do any of the following acts aimed at the College or any of its tutors or linked organizations: misrepresentation of previous qualifications or biographical details, spamming or any form of attack on our computer systems or websites, publishing or making slanderous or libelous statements,trolling on social media, copying any copyright material (including parts of the website and any logos) without written permission, gross plagiarism (copying someone else’s work and claiming it is your own), abusive behaviour, issuing a bouncing cheque and not paying the fees and costs due, expressing racism, hatred or incitement to violence, or any criminal act.
