Animal Courses Direct Liability Disclaimer


You will only be able to participate in a Practical Placement if you have completed the Animal Courses Direct waiver. If you are under the age of 18, the waiver will need to be completed by a parent or legal guardian.

Waiver: I hereby release and covenant not to claim against Animal Courses Direct, its officers, directors, employees, agents, and contractors, from any and all present and future claims resulting from ordinary negligence, for personal injury, or death arising as a result of participating in a practical placement. I hereby voluntarily waive any and all claims resulting from ordinary negligence, both present and future, which may be made by family estate heirs, assigns, or me. I am voluntarily participating in program activities with the knowledge of dangers involved and hereby agree to accept any and all inherent risks of personal injury, or death. I understand that this waiver is intended to be as broad and inclusive as permitted and agree that if any portion of this Waiver and Release are held invalid, the remainder of the Waiver and Release will continue in full force and effect.

Cancellation Policy: Whilst we make every effort to run courses as advertised, we reserve the right to change the content, timing, dates or venue of our courses. We reserve the right to cancel a course up to the date of the course if insufficient bookings have been received. In all cases, students who had registered to attend a cancelled course will be given the option of a full refund or of rescheduling to a future course date but Animal Courses Direct disclaims any further liability. If you are unable to attend your practical course, you may substitute, by prior arrangement and after notifying us, someone else from your organisation (1 week notice is required). Bookings can only be transferred once. If you are unable to attend, and not in a position to transfer your place to another person, then full charges will apply. Please note that full payment is required for non-attendance on a booking that has been transferred. No refund will be payable for non-attendance.


All students who complete qualifications from level 3 or above are eligible for the NUS extra / Totum Card, which gives you access to over 200 UK student discounts with brands like Co-op, Amazon and ASOS. Apply and find out more at
