When you book a course with Music Business Courses Limited (“us”) we will send you an email to confirm that we have received and accepted your booking. A
contract is only formed between us when you receive that email acknowledgement.
a) [If you wish and if you accept the Terms and Conditions you (or a third party paying fees on your behalf) may pay the fees now, within this website by
following the Pay Now link. If you choose not to pay now we cannot accept your online application and you must make a written application to us at the
address shown under "contact details" on this website together with the payment. ] By applying to attend a course you are taken to have accepted these
Terms and Conditions.
b) It is the responsibility of you, the student intending to attend the course, to ensure that all fees in respect of the course have been paid by the

shall be borne by you or the third party making the payment, and shall not be deductible from the fee due to us.
