The Referral Plan (the "Plan") is offered by Laureate Online Education B.V. (Laureate) under the brand name of the University of Roehampton, London Online.
The purpose of the Referral Plan and Laureate’s offer for tuition fee reductions and e-store vouchers (“Incentives”) is to promote education by encouraging students and graduates to identify prospective students who may be interested in undertaking an online postgraduate programme with the University of Roehampton, London Online.
“Advocate” is the term used for a person who refers a friend, colleague or family member (“Friend”) to the University of Roehampton, London Online. “Referral” is the term used for the act of referring a Friend to the University of Roehampton, London Online.
An Advocate can be a student currently enrolled with the University of Roehampton, London Online (“Student Advocate”), a graduate of the University of Roehampton, London Online (“Graduate Advocate”), or a prospective student of the University of Roehampton, London Online.
A Friend can be a friend, colleague or family member of the Advocate. For the Advocate to qualify for an Incentive, the Friend must not be a graduate or a student of the University of Roehampton, London Online, or already be in the University of Roehampton, London Online’s database of active prospective students.
Advocates must refer a Friend to the University directly through an authorised Enrolment Advisor of the University of Roehampton, London Online, or use the referral form or email address found at https://online.roehampton.ac.uk/about/referral-plan.
If the Referral is made online, all the required forms and fields must be completed by the Advocate and the Friend for either of these individuals to qualify for an Incentive.
Laureate reserves the right to limit, reject, or cancel referrals involving an Advocate or Friend who disregards these terms and conditions.
In order for an Incentive to apply in relation to a Referral, the Referral and Friend must meet the ”Referral Conditions” for a “Qualified Friend” which are as follows:
The Incentive will be awarded to the Advocate.
The Incentive will be a US$1,000 tuition fee reduction or a US$500 e-store voucher, as specified below. In all cases, the award of an Incentive depends on all required conditions as set out in these terms and conditions being met.
There can be only one Incentive awarded in relation to one specific Friend.
A. Tuition Fee Reduction
For Student Advocates who are still paying their tuition fees, the standard Incentive will be a US$1,000 tuition fee reduction, made available after the conditions for a Qualified Friend are met. The Incentive will be applied to the Advocate’s tuition fee account to help pay for his/her online studies with the University of Roehampton, London Online. See for the following exceptions:
For a Student Advocate who is still paying his/her fees, the Tuition Fee Reduction cannot exceed the open balance of the cost of his/her total tuition fee. If the open balance of his/her total tuition fee is less than US$1,000, he/she will only receive a tuition fee reduction equal to the amount owed.
The Student Advocate can only receive one US$1,000 tuition fee reduction per module. If a Student Advocate earns more Incentives than there are modules remaining to pay for in his/her programme, the Alternative Incentive, as described below, will apply.
B. Alternative Incentive
Graduate Advocates and Student Advocates who have paid their fees in full, will be eligible for an Alternative Incentive, made available after the conditions for a Qualified Friend are met, consisting of one of the following three options:
Graduate Advocates and fully paid Student Advocates who wish to avail themselves of Option 2 or Option 3 must indicate this wish in writing to an Enrolment Advisor of the University at the latest by the time their Friend is confirmed as Qualified. Otherwise, Laureate will award the standard ‘default’ Alternative Incentive: an e-store voucher. If the Advocate is not currently a student or graduate of the University of Roehampton, London Online and has paid in full for his/her first module and passed day 14 of the module.
Any Incentive or Alternative Incentive will be awarded only after the referred Friend becomes Qualified.
The standard US$1,000 tuition fee reduction Incentive will be applied to an Advocate Student’s next open invoice.
The US$500 e-store voucher Alternative Incentive (for Graduate Advocates and fully paid Student Advocates) will be sent to the email address provided by the Advocate.
The above Incentives have no cash or monetary value and cannot be exchanged for cash in any form.
The making, by any party, of false or misleading statements that result in misuse or misinterpretation of the product, benefits or features provided by the University or Laureate will be cause for an immediate cancellation of, or ineligibility for, any Incentive or Alternative Incentive offered under this agreement.
Laureate reserves the right to terminate the Plan at any time. If a Friend meets the requirements of a Qualified Friend after the Plan has been terminated, the terms of the Plan outlined in this document will not apply.
