Registration and Programme of Study

This section applies to: ALL PROGRAMMES

This section tells students the full terms and conditions on which they enrol on to our courses listed on our website.

Students' attention is particularly drawn to this section, as enrolment on to any course constitutes full and irrevocable acceptance of the terms and conditions. Students must read these terms and conditions carefully before enrolling onto a course. IF YOU DO NOT UNDERSTAND OR DO NOT AGREE WITH ANY OF THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS PLEASE SEEK ASSISTANCE AND DO NOT ENROL ON TO

THE COURSE. Students are also advised to print and keep a copy of these terms and conditions for their records.

We may revise these Terms and Conditions any time by amending this page. You are expected to check this page from time to time to take notice of any changes we make, as they are legally binding on you. Some of the provisions contained in these Terms and Conditions may also be superseded by other provisions, promotions or notices published elsewhere on our site.

On submitting your filled Application, you would either be sent an Invoice or taken to the page for the payment of your Registration Fee (if applicable). It is only after the payment of this Registration Fee that your Conditional Acceptance for the Programme would be sent to you.

Please note that the Registration Fee is non refundable.

On the receipt of Conditional Acceptance for the Programme, you would be sent a Link or an Invoice for the payment of your Tuition Fee. Please note that an acceptable Commitment Fee, must be received prior to the course commencement in order to confirm your place and/or receive your Unconditional Acceptance for the Programme.

Cancellations must be received in writing at least 4 weeks (28 days) before the published commencement date of the Programme. Otherwise it is upon MSBM's discretion to accept or reject the Cancellation of said Programme.

If you cancel less than 28 days to the Programme, an administrative charge deductible from the initial payment made and/or as stated on your Invoice or payment page.

No refund would be given for Cancellations less than 14 days to the Programme and there would be an administrative charge for deferment to another Session.

You can defer twice at no extra fee than the originally charged administrative fee plus any increase in Tuition Fee, but by the third deferment, there would be an increased administrative charge for the Session plus any increase in Tuition Fee and no more deferment after the fourth deferment. This means that failure to attend or take up the Course by the fourth deferment would mean your initial Tuition Fee payment is forfeit.

By the 5th deferment, you would have to re-register, pay the registration fee and pay the Tuition Fee afresh.
