General Terms and Conditions
of the UdK Berlin / KlangKunstBühne
Effective as of March 14th, 2019
1. Application for KlangKunstBühne
An application must be submitted to the UdK Berlin KlangKunstBühne within the stated registration deadline. The UdK Berlin KlangKunstBühne supplies a digital application form on the Website. Please fill in all required data and confirm that you have read and accepted the General Terms and Conditions. Send the application digitally to the UdK Berlin KlangKunstBühne by clicking the “send” button or by post to Universität der Künste Berlin, KlangKunstBühne, Bundesallee 1–12, 10719 Berlin.
The valid date of application is the date of receipt by the UdK Berlin KlangKunstBühne.
A detailed CV of his/her artistic career must be submitted with the application. Admission to the course may be denied if these documents do not arrive by the application deadline.
Once your complete application has been successfully received you will receive an invoice from the UdK Berlin KlangKunstBühne.
2. Validity of Registration
An applicant’s registration for a course becomes binding when the complete online or paper registration form has been successfully received, the course-specific admission requirements have been met and the course fee has been successfully transferred into the bank account of the UdK Berlin KlangKunstBühne within 30 days after the invoice date. The applicant is responsible for paying any applicable bank or transfer charges.
The timely transfer of the course fee into the bank account of the UdK Berlin KlangKunstBühne cannot be guaranteed in the case of registration shortly before the course in question is scheduled to begin. The applicant is therefore required to submit a confirmation of payment without solicitation in order to be able to participate in the course.
3. Admission Requirements and Procedure
There are admission requirements for the individual courses provided that these requirements are declared (e. g. degrees, professional experience). Admission for course participation will be granted provided the applicant meets the applicable requirements. The date of receipt of the complete application is decisive for the selection of participants in the case that the number of applications exceeds the number of available course places. There is no legal claim to admission.
The German embassy or consulate in your country of origin can issue visas. Upon successful registration and full payment of the corresponding course fee(s) you will receive an official invitation through mail and/or email. The applicant in question is responsible for finding out if they must apply for a visa to enter Germany. Please visit the homepage of the German foreign office www.auswaertiges-amt.de for further information. It is strongly recommended that you submit your visa application as early as possible due to long processing times in the embassies/consulates. KlangKunstBühne is responsible in no way for the issuance/acquisition or approval of visas.
5. Rescission of admission
The UdK Berlin KlangKunstBühne can rescind admission if it is established subsequently that the requirements for admission were not fulfilled or were induced by fraudulent misrepresentation, compulsion or bribery. In case of a rescission of admission there is no reimbursement possible for fees already paid. Expenses incurred by the rescission must be paid by the participant.
6. Withdrawal by Applicant
The applicant can declare his/her withdrawal from a binding application. Any cancellation must be executed in writing either by e-mail to email@example.com, by mail or by fax.
In case of withdrawal from the course until the 31st of July 2019 a charge of 25% of the course fee will be imposed, in case of withdrawal from the course until the 15th of August 2019 a charge of 50% of the course fee will be imposed. After this deadline no reimbursement is possible.
The applicant will not receive any course documents in the case of course withdrawal or failure to appear to a course.
7. Cancellation of Courses
A course may be cancelled if the minimum number of participants is not reached by the registration deadline. The applicants will be notified at the latest 14 days before the course is scheduled to begin. Fees that have already been paid will be refunded. Any further claims are excluded.
8. Changes of Instructor(s), Date(s) and/or Course Venue(s)
The UdK Berlin KlangKunstBühne reserves the right to change instructors, course dates and places if necessary (e. g. illness of an instructor). The participant will be notified as soon as possible. In the event of a change the participant is not authorized to reduce, withhold or reclaim the course fee. In cases of said course changes, the UdK Berlin KlangKunstBühne reserves the right to cancel the course if necessary. In this case, any fees already paid will be refunded. Any further claims are excluded.
The participant is responsible for any loss of or damage to his personal property for the full duration of the course. Upon entering a course venue, the participant agrees to adhere to the specific house rules. Any further liability on the part of the UdK Berlin KlangKunstBühne is excluded as far as legally permissible.
