IH Aberdeen retains details of all payments made to you or by you, along with records of invoices and other relevant documents.


Data you share with us

You are responsible for controlling student data. During the process of an enquiry, application or enrolment, you must share with us certain necessary student data.

The data required are specified on our booking form - we always request the following information:

• Student’s name and date of birth

• Student’s course requirement (duration, intensity, type)

• Other student’s requirement (Visa, special needs)

• Student’s special educational or hosting needs, if applicable

Once a student has confirmed their enrolment, we also require the following information:

• Student’s mobile phone number

• Student’s email address

• Family/tutor’s contacts when the student is a minor

• Family/tutor’s permissions when the student is a minor

Throughout the enquiry, application and enrolment process, and during a student’s course of study, IH Aberdeen acts as a processor of the student’s data.  We do not use student information for any purposes not directly necessary for organising of their course of study.


4.  Changes of policy

We may change this Policy form in the future.  If we make any significant changes, we will notify you by sending you an email with the update.
