Course Descriptions

Courses are as described on the ORMS website, in any prospectus or leaflets provided at the time of enquiry.

Whilst every attempt is made to ensure that information is accurate and up-to-date, some information is subject to change. ORMS will not be held liable for information that is subject to change and reserves the right to alter the content of the website at any time.

Course Prospectus and Leaflets

Course Prospectus and leaflets are intended to help you choose your course of study at ORMS.  All students will be required as a condition of enrolment to abide by, and to submit to the procedures of, ORMS’ rules and regulations, as amended from time to time. A copy of the current regulations are available at: http://intranet.orms247.co.uk/ (scroll to the bottom of the page)

Every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of the information contained within the prospectus and leaflets but it is subject to alteration without notice. ORMS will use all reasonable endeavours to deliver courses in accordance with the descriptions set out in the prospectus and leaflets. ORMS, however, reserves the right to make variations to the content or methods of delivery of courses, to discontinue courses and to merge or combine courses, if such action is reasonably considered to be necessary by ORMS. If ORMS discontinues any course, it will use reasonable endeavours to provide a suitable alternative course. In the event of industrial action or other circumstances beyond the control of ORMS that interferes with its ability to provide these courses or services, ORMS will undertake to minimise disruption as far as is practicable.

Any changes to prospectus and leaflets such as newly announced courses of study or changes to contact details will be incorporated into our website. Changes may be made to Entrance Requirements post publication of the printed prospectus and leaflets, but before commencement of the course to which the prospectus relates. These changes will be incorporated into our website prior to the course commencement. No changes will be made to Entry Requirements after commencement of the course.

Course Changes

Changes to any of ORMS’s courses which impact on course or module delivery or availability as previously communicated will be made at least 12 weeks prior to the start of the course. Such changes will be communicated to applicants affected at the earliest possible opportunity.

Course Suspension

A course will be considered suspended when it is no longer going to be running in the next or any future intakes. The decision to suspend a course should be made at least 16 weeks prior to the start date of the course. Any course being suspended within 16 weeks of the course start date should continue to recruit and be suspended for the following intake.

The decision to suspend a course will be communicated to applicants affected at the earliest possible opportunity. Affected applicants will also be given clear guidance on their future options.

Courses will not recruit during a period of suspension.

Course Cessation

The decision to discontinue a course will be communicated to applicants affected at the earliest possible opportunity. Affected applicants will also be given clear guidance on their future options.

A course will continue to recruit until it has been formally discontinued unless it was already suspended.
