Terms & Conditions
These contractual terms apply to every registration for a course at SAE Institute and SAE Netherlands BV and/or its appointed agent (“SAE”)
1. Conclusion of the agreement and payment
The agreement between SAE and the student is concluded when SAE receives, by email at
or by regular mail, the registration agreement that is completed and signed on both sides by the student or his or her legal representative(s).
For each registration for a course, a one-time registration fee is due, in addition to the tuition fees that apply to the course. All courses at SAE are exempt from VAT (in Dutch: BTW).
The registration fee must be paid in full at the latest 14 days after receipt by SAE of the completed and signed registration agreement, but in any case, before the date of commencement of the course to which the fee applies.
Registration fees will not be refunded, except upon withdrawal from the agreement in accordance with section 2 below (cooling-off period) or in the event there is no place available (see section 1.9 below).
Tuition fees can be paid in full, per year, per term, or in monthly instalments in accordance with the different payment plans available in the registration agreement.
The full tuition fee (payment plan A) or the first instalment thereof (payment plan B or C) must be paid at the latest on the date of commencement of the course. Further instalments must be paid according to the applicable payment arrangement before the start of each new term or month.
SAE has the right to offer the place of the student to someone else in case the student’s tuition fees are not paid in time. In that case, the student’s tuition fees are still due and after receipt of payment of the tuition fees, SAE will inform the student on placement in the desired course.
Absence in stylees in no event gives the right to a refund of paid, and/or due, fees.
Payment of the registration fee and tuition fees do not guarantee a place in the desired course. Places are dependent on availability. In case students cannot be placed, already paid registration and tuition fees will be refunded, except where students wish to use these for other courses.
Only at the specific request of a student shall SAE send invoices for registration and tuition fees. Students will inform SAE in writing in advance of the fact that an employer, other institute or organization will pay for fees due.
In order to be eligible, you must fulfil the general entry requirements as well as the specific entry requirements for the programme or course you are interested in. In order to document your eligibility, you must provide SAE Admissions with copies of your previous study information, as well as document your language proficiency. Be sure to consult our study advisors for more information should you have questions.
2. Cooling-off period
The student is entitled to a cooling-off period of 14 days in which he or she shall have the right to withdraw from the agreement, without giving any reason and without incurring any costs. This period starts on the day that SAE receives the registration agreement completed and signed on both sides by the student or his or her legal representative(s).
In case the student expressly requests to take part in the commencement of the course during the cooling-off period and makes use of his or her right to withdraw from the agreement subsequently, he or she shall pay SAE an amount which is in proportion to what has been provided in the course until the communication of the withdrawal from the agreement, in comparison with the full coverage of the agreement.
The right to withdraw from the agreement is exercised by the student by informing SAE of his or her decision to withdraw from the agreement by sending an unequivocal statement by email to
before the cooling-off period expires. SAE shall acknowledge receipt of the withdrawal without undue delay.
In cases where payments have already been made, SAE shall return these amounts as soon as possible. SAE shall return amounts to the bank account they were paid from. The student hereby confirms/ratifies the validity of this payment in case this bank account is held by a third party (in Dutch: bekrachtiging). SAE has the right to set-off its obligation to return paid amounts to any amount payable by the student to SAE under section 2.2 above.
3. Alterations by SAE
If necessary, in the opinion of SAE, the contents of courses can be altered at any time, for example in order to add new subjects and replace subjects that have become unsuitable. SAE may also change the time or day at which stylees are given. stylees may also be moved to evening hours or delivered in a blended/online setting.
In the event too few students register for a term, SAE may change the planning of the term or cancel the term. SAE also reserves the right to combine cohorts that are following the same content.
SAE may change academic (accreditation) partner(s) if deemed necessary, as well as the names of certificates, diplomas and degree qualifications.
For registrations using payment plan ‘B’, or ‘C’, SAE has the right to increase fees once per year on the basis of the consumer price index of Statistics Netherlands (Centraal Bureau voor de Statistiek - CBS).
4. Rules for the student
All students shall comply with the rules in the “Campus Guide” and follow the orders of SAE staff members at all times. In addition, the following rules apply.
When SAE deems it necessary, additional rules may be implemented, for instance as a result of government regulations or developments in society. This includes, but is not limited to, rules on wearing face masks in SAE’s facilities. These rules shall be made available to the students and must at all times be adhered to. SAE has the right to refuse access to facilities in case students fail to adhere to applicable rules.
The use of SAE’s facilities is for educational purposes only. Any breach of this rule can lead to the student being refused access to facilities and tuition.
The student is responsible for the facilities while he or she is using these and should see to it that the equipment is not damaged or stolen. In case of any malfunction or failure of equipment, the student should immediately inform a staff member and provide all information necessary.
In the event equipment is (i) lost, (ii) damaged due to careless or negligent behaviour or (iii) stolen during the use by a student, this student is liable for all costs SAE has to make in order to replace or repair the equipment. The student will reimburse SAE within 21 days after the damage-inflicting event.
Booked practical time may be cancelled by SAE if necessary, in the opinion of SAE. The student shall be informed of such cancellation in advance if possible. The practical time lost shall as soon as possible be booked in favour of the student again.
Under no circumstance is it allowed to record and/or share, in whatever medium, lessons (or any other form of other content) that have been delivered by SAE or received at SAE events.
Should a module have to be retaken by the student in order to successfully complete the course, the tuition fees for such a retake will be calculated based on payment plan ‘A’.
5. Intellectual property
All intellectual property rights on teaching materials and software that is directly or indirectly made available to students belong exclusively to SAE and its licensors. SAE grants students the right to use these teaching materials and software during the time of their study at SAE. This right is limited to and directly connected to the enrolment in a course at SAE. It is strictly prohibited to copy or make public any (part of) teaching material or software without the express prior written permission of SAE.
The intellectual property rights on creations that students make as part of a course at SAE or using the facilities of SAE, such as audio-visual creations, belong to the particular student and other persons who were involved in the making of these creations, all in accordance with the Dutch Copyright Act and Act on Neighbouring Rights (In Dutch: Auteurs wet & Wet op de Naburige Rechten). Such creations shall not be published or reproduced for commercial purposes, except after express written permission from SAE. The student shall make note that he or she is studying at SAE every time such creations are published or reproduced. The student can use SAE’s logo in order to do so.
The student hereby grants SAE a license, unlimited in time, to use all creations made by the student during the time he or she was studying at SAE. This license is limited to use for promotional activities for SAE and its courses and to use for educational purposes.
6. Cancellation and transfer by the student
Students may cancel the remainder of their course and terminate the agreement in writing per the end of a term. Written notice must be sent to
and must be received by SAE before
where the next term starts in January, before
where the next term starts in March, before
where the next term starts in May or before
where the next term starts in September. Notices that are late apply to the following term. For courses that have a duration of only 1 term (4 months), cancellation during the course is not possible.
In order to simplify the cancellation process and reduce miscommunications, cancellation requests that are sent to a different address than
, will be discarded.
Absence in stylees can in no circumstance be interpreted as a cancellation and will not lead to refunds of due fees.
Students are free to transfer to other campuses of SAE anywhere in the world after a term is finished (not during a term). Notwithstanding differences in tuition fees, all paid tuition fees shall be used by SAE to offer stylees to the student in the other campuses.
A fee of € 200.- is due by the student to SAE in case of a transfer between campuses of SAE.
Students who transfer to another college of SAE will comply with the local rules and conditions.
In case of cancellation of a contract based on Payment Plan A, the discount based on this payment plan retrospectively no longer applies and an additional fee based on Payment Plan C will be charged to the student to cover the duration of the course until the date of cancellation.
Unused funds will be returned to the bank account they were paid from. The student hereby confirms/ratifies the validity of this payment in case this bank account is held by a third party (in Dutch: bekrachtiging).
7. Cancellation by SAE
In case it becomes clear, after the start of the course, that a student shall not, in the opinion of SAE, successfully complete the course, for example because of his or her previous education, even if he or she already successfully completed part of a course in the past, SAE shall have the right to dissolve the agreement with this student in writing with immediate effect.
In cases where a studentet’s behaviour, in the opinion of SAE, makes the student unsuitable for (further) participation in a course at SAE or use of the facilities of SAE, SAE can deny the student participation and access to the facilities and expel the student. In that case, the agreement will be dissolved in writing.
SAE has the right to cancel booked practical time, deny access to facilities and lessons or terminate the agreement in case the student has substantial (more than one term) outstanding tuition fees. In case of termination, the agreement will be dissolved (in Dutch: ontbonden) in writing after a notice period to pay the outstanding fees remains unused.
Up to the end of the first week after the date of commencement of a term, SAE can cancel a course in cases where too few students have registered. Students shall receive written notice. Already paid tuition fees will be used for (future) other courses or be refunded, the latter if the student requests this within 1 month after the original date of commencement.
8. Force majeure
In the event SAE is no longer able to perform its obligations as a result of force majeure, it will inform the student that its obligations are suspended. Illness of teachers and students in connection with an epidemic or pandemic and measures that SAE reasonably believes must be taken in that regard that limit the use of facilities are considered to be force majeure. Not until after a period of eight months following the suspension does the student have the right to dissolve (in Dutch: ontbinden) the agreement in writing. Suspension and dissolution of the agreement do not lead to any liability of SAE.
Any liability of SAE as against the student, irrespective of the legal ground on which liability is based, is limited to the amount that is paid out under SAE’s insurance policy in the particular event at hand, or a maximum of € 10,000 in case the insurance policy does not cover the event leading to liability. This limitation does not apply in cases of intent or gross negligence.
10. Minority - parents / guardians
The student who is younger than 18 years at the date of registration declares that his/her parents, guardians or other legal representatives have given permission to register and herewith permits SAE to contact his/her parents, guardians or other legal representatives if SAE determines at its own discretion that the circumstances make this necessary.
If the registration agreement is signed by a third party on behalf of the student, this person accepts full liability for all fees and expenses arising under these contractual terms.
In no case will SAE share information about its students, without the direct consent of the student, to third parties. This also applies to family members and/or sponsors.
11. Applicable law
This registration agreement is exclusively governed by the laws of the Netherlands.
Any dispute between SAE and the student shall be brought exclusively before the competent court in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
