Shillington Online terms and conditions.

Terms and conditions for Shillington Online

Shillington United Kingdom terms and conditions will apply to all enrolments for our online courses.

Please note that enrolling for one of our online courses creates a contract with Shillington College Limited, registered in England and Wales under company no: 6220665. The law of the United Kingdom will, therefore, have jurisdiction over all contractual matters as they relate to our online courses.

The Online Terms & Conditions policy differs from our on-campus Terms & Conditions, which also vary between countries. If you are planning to study on-campus in London, review our Shillington United Kingdom terms and conditions. If you are planning to study on-campus in New York, review our United States terms and conditions. If you are planning to study on-campus in Australia, review our Australian terms and conditions.

*In these terms and conditions, Shillington College Limited will be referred to as “Shillington”.
