I agree to accept full responsibility for these expenses. I have also read and understand the ELS cancellation and refund policy. I agree to accept full responsibility for my actions while participating in the program and any related activities (including excursions and/or internships) and agree to assume all risk of harm arising from my participation, unless caused by ELS’s negligence.

By enrolling at ELS, I acknowledge that a risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present, and voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19 and agree not to hold ELS or any employee, agent, host institution or other affiliated party liable for any illness or injury including, without limitation, contracting COVID-19. Additionally, I will follow the ELS safety protocol for quarantine and self-isolation before beginning in-person studies at an ELS Center.

In case of illness and/or injury, permission is granted to any appropriate medical center to examine or treat and make necessary referrals to outside physicians as indicated.

I understand that ELS may be required to terminate its in-person instruction and move my program online at any time if local health authorities require it to do so OR if ELS believes that safety of its students, staff and local partners would be at risk if in-person instruction continued.

I hereby agree that ELS shall have the right, in its sole discretion, to terminate my attendance in any ELS program of study and to insist that I return to my country of origin within 24 hours of such termination by ELS.

I hereby grant ELS Language Centers and its subsidiaries, associated companies, and licensees, permission to photograph, record, and videotape me while attending ELS Language Centers or activities conducted by ELS Language Centers.

I further understand that this grant is intended to be worldwide in scope and to apply to all media now existing or hereafter developed.
