4. Limits of Obligations
4.1 The College undertakes all reasonable steps to provide educational services including teaching, examination, assessment and other related services, set out in its prospectuses and programme literature (‘Educational Services’). However, except where otherwise expressly stated in writing, the College cannot accept liability or pay any compensation where the performance or prompt performance of its obligations to provide Educational Services is prevented or affected by force majeure.
4.2 ‘Force majeure’ means any event which Goldsmiths could not, even with all due care, foresee or avoid. Such events may include (but are not limited to) war or threat of war, riot, civil strife, terrorist activity, industrial action, natural or nuclear disaster, adverse weather conditions, pandemic flu or other communicable disease, interruption in power supplies or other services for any reason, fire and all similar events outside the control of the College.
4.3 Prospectuses, including material in other printed brochures and on the College’s website, are as far as possible accurate as at the date of publication, but the College does not intend by the publication of a prospectus, or any other advance degree programme information, to create any contractual or other legal relation with applicants, accepted students, their advisers or any other person. Nor is it responsible or liable for the accuracy or reliability of any of the information in third party publications or websites referred to in a prospectus.
4.4 The College does not accept liability for the cancellation of proposed programmes of study prior to their scheduled start, although it will take reasonable steps to transfer students affected by the cancellation to similar or related programmes of study.
