1. GBS needs to collect, store and process personal data about its staff, students, and other individuals it has dealings with, to carry out our functions and activities. GBS is a controller for most of the personal data it processes and is committed to full compliance with the applicable data protection legislation including The Data Protection Act 2018 and the United Kingdom General Data Protection Regulation (UK GDPR).

2. Due to data protection and privacy regulations, the referrer will not receive any updates on the new student’s application or tuition fee payment status, except to be notified once the tuition fee has been received and so to request the referrer’s details for payment purposes.

3. If you are involved in study arrangements with any of GBS Collaborative Partner Institutions, please note that all our partners are also Data controllers and are responsible for the same regulations as GBS and must comply with Data Protection Act 2018 and UK GDPR. Please refer to each of our partner Institutions specifically for further information on their data protection guidelines.

4. Payments will be made by bank transfer only (BACS).

5. No payment will be made if any tuition fees are in arrears for either the referrer or the new student.
