Field Assignment (outreach) Phase

*All refunds will be given in the same currency in which they were paid unless the method of payment is impractical or requested by the student.
*Refunds will be paid only to the person who has entered into the course unless the person directs us in writing for it to be paid to someone else.
*Refunds will be paid no later than two months after withdrawal or the end of the school term, which ever comes later.
I confirm that I understand payment of the required course costs must be made on or before my arrival, unless otherwise arranged with YWAM Byron Bay, and I agree to do so. I also confirm that I am fully aware of the refund policy, my financial obligations, both to the Lord and to the students and staff of the school.
I therefore accept all responsibility for all fees and personal expenses incurred during my involvement with Youth With A Mission Byron Bay Inc.
I also give Youth With A Mission Byron Bay Inc authority to withdraw from the notified trust account amount of my course cost paid in advance of the course commencement for purposes of course setup (IE: lecturer costs, accommodation, tuition resources, purchase of equipment, vehicle leasing and food.)
YWAM - Byron Bay Inc does everything possible to protect staff and students on the field. Although death is extremely rare in service with Youth With A Mission internationally and with YWAM - Byron Bay Inc, it nevertheless needs to be considered.
In case of death, YWAM - Byron Bay Inc. cannot commit to cover the costs of shipping the body to another country for purposes of burial or to ultimately cover costs of burial in the country of death. If the family desires that the body be transported home, the family must incur the cost.
Please note: The OSHC insurance that covers DTS, IPHC, BCC, and SOMM students in Australia is only medical coverage. You may choose to obtain travel insurance while you are in Australia to cover burial costs. The Overseas Outreach Insurance is medical cover as well as travel cover. As this is the case, the Overseas Outreach Insurance would cover a portion of the burial costs but only while overseas from Australia.
It is also strongly advised that every individual, regardless of age, have a will.
I agree that in the case of my death while in Youth With A Mission Byron Bay Inc, Youth With A Mission - Byron Bay Inc, may carry out the burial in the location of the deceased. If my family desires to have the body shipped home, my family will pay for it. I hereby absolve Youth With A Mission Byron Bay Inc, and all its staff and associates of the burial costs.
