Upon enrolment the Student will be required to set up a payment subscription by providing their credit card details.
Payment subscriptions are set-up and processed using the Stripe platform. We do not retain Student credit card information. The data is stored in Stripe’s secure and encrypted server. Learn more about Stripe’s security: https://stripe.com/docs/security/stripe
Payment for the month will be charged automatically to the nominated credit card at the start of each calendar month. The charge for the first month’s classes will be on a pro-rata basis depending on the date of enrolment and thereafter the monthly subscription amount will be charged.
REFUNDS & CREDITS
The Learning Zone operates on a refunds and credits basis. Depending on the circumstance, a refund, credit or both may apply.
Students can make a claim for a refund or credit by raising a support ticket on the Learning Zone. The claim will be assessed against the applicable policies and processed if appropriate.
The conditions applicable to each scenario are as follows:
Reduction in the number of classes taken or withdrawal: a credit will be available for one year on the Student account for any excess classes already paid for. No refund will be applicable. The credit will be applied automatically by the system and the Student will not be required to raise a support ticket.
Failure to deliver class: In the event we are not able to deliver a class at the scheduled time, we will first attempt to reschedule the class with the Student. If this is not possible the Student will be entitled to a credit towards future classes or a refund as the Student’s election. A claim for a credit or refund needs to be made by the Student by raising a support ticket on the Learning Zone.
Ramadan: a credit towards future classes will be applied upon request. The claim for the credit needs to be made within one month of Ramadan ending. A claim for a credit needs to be made by the Student by raising a support ticket on the Learning Zone.
Student Non-Attendance: No credits or refunds will be applicable where a Student does not attend a class/es and the reason for the non-attendance is not caused by usl.
Students should only speak to Teachers about matters relating to the material they are studying. All other queries, including those relating to the administration of classes, IT issues and concerns with the learning experience should be directed to us by raising a support ticket via the Learning Zone.
Active parental involvement in child’s learning is encouraged as this leads to the best learning outcomes for the child. Parental involvement includes but should not be limited to, monitoring the child’s revision and practice on non-class days and actively engaging with the Teacher about their child’s progress.
If a child’s attentiveness in class is found to be an issue and the Teacher advises that parental supervision of a child during class is required, such supervision becomes mandatory.
Students will be required to choose their class times as part of the enrolment process. Thereafter if the Student wishes to change a scheduled class time, the Student will be able to do so through the student dashboard on the Learning Zone. Any alterations to a scheduled time shall be subject to availability.
In scheduling classes, the student will be entitled to schedule a maximum of one class per day and five classes per week. All classes will be required to be scheduled with the same teacher.
A Teacher’s prayer time will vary over the course of the year. If a class falls within the time for prayer, the Teacher will discuss this with the Student and make appropriate arrangements. Generally this may involve starting a class, pausing for prayer and then reconvening. We have allocated 1 hour to each class, even though the teaching time is between 45 – 50 mins in order to accommodate for things such as prayer.
In the event that a Student is not able to attend class at their scheduled time due to:
- the teacher being absent; or
- a technical issue that is our fault,
a replacement class will be offered to the Student. The replacement classes are most likely to be at the Student’s scheduled class time on one of the otherwise designated non-teaching days (Friday or Saturday). However it may also be on a teaching day, subject to availability.
Students will receive an email confirming the date and time of the replacement class.
If it is not feasible to provide a replacement class or the student is not able to attend the replacement class time, the Student will be entitled to a credit towards future classes or a refund as the Student’s election. A claim for a credit or refund needs to be made by the Student by raising a support ticket on the Learning Zone.
No replacement classes will be offered if a Student is absent from class on their own volition.
We will always do our best to ensure that a Student is always taught by the Teacher selected at the time of enrolment. However, from time to time, due to operational constraints or unforeseen circumstances we may need to appoint a replacement Teacher to take classes.
Ramadan & Eids
There will be no classes during Ramadan and for three days starting on the day of every Eid (ie, Eid-al-Fitr & Eid-al-Adha.) Precise dates for Ramadan and Eid Holiday will be notified as and when they are determined.
Fees will be deducted by the subscription payment gateway for the period covering the month of Ramadan. The collected fees will be considered a sadaqa towards the spread of the Qur’an in the month of the Qur’an as it will be put towards covering our ongoing monthly expenses and rewarding Teachers. However, Students may apply for a credit towards future classes no later than one month after the Ramadan for which the credit is claimed. A claim for a credit needs to be made by the Student by raising a support ticket on the Learning Zone.
If a Student wishes to withdraw, the Student will need to do so through their student dashboard on the Learning Zone. Students will be asked to confirm withdrawal and once confirmed, the system will automatically cancel the monthly class subscription from the following month. A credit will be available for one year on the Student account for any excess classes already paid for.
As soon as a Student withdraws, the class time slot will be released and made immediately available to other Students.
Gifts to Teachers
If a Student wishes to give a gift to their teacher, they should notify the institute of this by raising a support ticket on the Learning Zone. Under no circumstances should they discuss the gift with their teacher. The decision on whether to facilitate the passing on of the gift to the teacher will be completely at the discretion of the Institute. This decision will be made based on the ease of facilitating the transaction, the type of gift and the impact that the giving of the gift may have on the other Teachers. Alternatively, Students may contribute funds to towards a central gift pool which will be used to reward Teachers as appropriate in the future.
We recommend that Students have (at least) 0.5 Mbits/sec – which is 500 Kbits/sec – upstream bandwidth, and (at least) 1 Mbits/sec download bandwidth. The upstream bandwidth is the amount of bandwidth their computer has available to transmit data to the BigBlueButton server.
Students are advised that classes may be recorded from time to time for quality control and Teacher development purposes.
