3. Waiver

i) I agree to waive and release PRC Study (which term shall include officers, shareholders, directors, the company itself, employees and agents of the company, as well as host institutions and any person or entity employed or utilized by PRC Study) and agree not to sue such persons for any claims which may arise from, or in connection with, any physical or property damage which I may suffer from any cause whatsoever. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, I release such persons for any physical or property damage which I may suffer resulting from acts of God, strikes or government restrictions, war, terrorist activities, sickness or quarantine or the acts or omission of any other agents over which such persons have no direct control, including, without limitation, airlines, transportation companies and railways, bus companies, taxi services, restaurants, student residences, apartments, youth hostels, hotels or host families.
ii) I understand that I am responsible for taking all measures and exercising caution and common sense at all times to avoid injuries and/or death.
iii) I hereby waive and release all claims against PRC Study and its agents arising at any time during the program, (whether I am or am not under the direct supervision of PRC Study or its agents), and I agree to indemnify PRC Study and its agents against any consequences thereof.
iv) PRC Study shall not be liable for any loss, harm, injury, damages on to me or to my property howsoever caused.

4. Standards of Conduct

PRC Study or the host institute shall have the right to enforce appropriate standards of conduct and that it may at any time terminate my participation in its program for failure to maintain these standards or for any actions or conduct which PRC Study or host institute considers to be incompatible with the interest, harmony, comfort and welfare of other students, staff, or the laws of the People's Republic of China. I shall have no right to any refund of any part of my program fee upon termination of my participation from the program and that upon notice by PRC Study, whether verbally or in writing, I shall forthwith depart from the program and to return home at my own expense.

5. Termination of Participation

i) If my participation is terminated, I consent to being sent home on my own (or my parents') expense with no refund of fees.
ii) If I leave the program for any reason, I agree there will be no refund of fees already paid.

6. Refunds

i) Excluding the application fee of US$100 and program deposit of US$200, and agent fee, if applicable, refunds will not exceed the table below:

Program Fee Refund Policy (% Refunded):

Notice Given:

100%

30 days or more before start of program

70%

The refund policy is as such due to the many expenses involved in arranging a program and the various policies of schools and housing. Please note that PRC Study makes financial commitments on behalf of its participants well in advance of the start date.
ii) Written notification detailing reasons for cancelling program participation and request for refund is required to be given and received by PRC Study's Beijing Office.
iii) In the event that I fail to present myself for the entire or any part of the program, no refund of any fees already paid to PRC Study shall be made, unless I have given prior written notice to PRC Study stating full reasons, and has obtained prior written approval from PRC Study. For the avoidance of doubt, PRC Study has the sole discretion, and is not bound to, grant any approval. Further, any periods of absence may not be made up with free extension of the program, unless with the prior consent in writing from PRC Study.

vi) Any bank or transfer fees associated with the refund of the program fees shall be the responsibility of the refund recipient.

7. Cancellation and Changes

i) In any activities or tours or programs arranged by PRC Study or the host institute I will accept the will of the majority whenever a matter of choice is presented to the group.

iv) When there are less than 10 students in a class, PRC Study reserves the right to place students at other university/academy/school programs or defer the program until another date . PRC Study reserves the right to cancel any course due to insufficient registration.
v) Once the program has started, I agree that I may not cancel a service type or downgrade to another service type for which I have enrolled, but that I may upgrade or change to a higher service type as offered by PRC Study and to pay the fee differential.
v) In the event that the currency exchange rate between US Dollars (US$) and Reminibi (RMB) becomes US$1:RMB7.6 or less, PRC Study reserves the right to impose a surcharge of an amount it deems appropriate in its absolute discretion.

8. Visa

i) I understand and accept that it is my responsibility to obtain the Chinese visa and in the event I cannot obtain the visa for participation I shall not hold PRC Study responsible. Failure to secure the necessary visa does not constitute grounds for a refund except according to Section 8 Item ii.
ii) In the event that my visa application is rejected by the Chinese Authorities, I will be entitled to 100% refund of the program fees (excluding the application fee and program deposit), provided that: a) I give PRC Study written notice and show the visa rejection letter given by the Chinese Authorities; b) the program I have enrolled has not already started, and c) that I have not already started the program for which I have enrolled.

9. Medical, Health, Insurance

i) I understand that all foreign students studying in China must purchase Medical Insurance; and that if I am enrolled for the Tuition Only Programs, insurance is not provided and that I must purchased insurance on my own.
ii) I understand travel accident and sickness insurance coverage for my benefit is optional and offered by Interglobal Limited, and that the purchase of such insurance coverage is included in the program fees for Full Service Package students. I have read the schedule of benefits and policy wording and understand its contents.
iii) I understand that should I purchase insurance in my home country I must show proof of this on my first day of classes during registration procedures.

viii) I hereby grant PRC Study and its agents full authority to take whatever actions they may consider to be warranted due to any international or political unrest, personal emergency or other event regarding my health and safety, and I fully release each of them from any liability for such decisions or actions as may be taken in connection therewith.
ix) If I become ill or incapacitated, PRC Study and its employees may take any action they deem necessary for my safety and well-being, including securing medical treatment (at my own expense) and transporting me home. I agree to indemnify PRC Study for any expense, fee, loss, damages, etc., in taking any action they deem necessary under this clause.

If deemed necessary or desirable by PRC Study or its agents to advance or loan any monies to me or incur special expense on my behalf while I am abroad, I (and my parents) agree to make immediate repayment prior or upon my return.

11. Social/Cultural Activities

I understand that PRC Study organizes social and cultural activities for full service students from time to time. I also understand that I am eligible to participate as many times as I want in each of those activities, but that PRC Study will only cover the costs of admission tickets, transportation and English guides for each of the activities once while I am part of the Full Service Package PRC Study program. Subsequent participation of the same activity on my part will be at my own expense. In addition, unless expressly agreed by PRC Study, food and drinks are also to be at my own expense.

15.
